Bo filling in on keys on the Roger Waters tour
« on: Sep 08, 2017, 02:41 PM »
Great news for yall that get to see a show on the new leg of the Roger Waters Us + Them tour:

There is one personnel change though it seems to be temporary: keyboardist Bo Koster, of My Morning Jacket, has replaced Drew Erickson, apparently due to an injury afflicting Erickson.

How cool is that for Bo.  Roger Waters sure has respect for MMJ, it's obvious. I'm sure the Jess and Holly (Lucius) thing all stems from Roger meeting them through MMJ also.

Awesome, but this makes it less likely we'll get new Jacket anytime soon as it would most likely push back their Fall recording plans. 

Maybe Jim will work on the long awaited Monsters of Folk sequel.... Wishful thinking.

heres' the thing though: it's a ringing endorsement from one of the founders of Pink Floyd himself, saying that Bo Koster is the most Rick Wright-esque keyboardist left on planet earth. Rick Wright was brilliant. Not just a psychedelic keyboardist, he could do it all from Indian modal scales on Set The Controls For The Heart of The Sun, to funk lounge jams on Have a Cigar, to gospel organ howls on Young Lust, to the classical piano serenade of The Great Gig In The Sky, aka one of the most moving pieces of music that WILL be a folk standard played and sang for generations and remembered for time and all eternity. He can play anything and did when he was alive. And guess who's just like that and maybe even better?

OUR BO!!!

I talked to Bo at the afterparty, the night of MMJ's first gig with Waters at the Newport Folk Festival in 2015, and he was on cloud nine from the experience and let go some funny stories about the night before when Waters wanted to change everything up at the last minute, LOL.

I'm really happy that he's getting the chance to have that incredible experience with Roger's tour.  But don't stay too long, now.  There's work to be done in the MMJ studio :drum:
