I was watching Unforgiven last night and the first words on the screen were “Big Whiskey, Wyoming.” A portent at the very least that the world’s energy has crossed streams at the GooGrux crux of Dave Matthews and his merry men. See, at that moment, barely past midnight, the Dave Matthews Band released its first album since the passing of saxophonist LeRoi Moore, and it took another grizzled cultural icon whose ridden the zeitgeist like a prize bull at a Wichita rodea, Clint Eastwood, to let us mere mortals know that Dizzle.M.Bizzle is back. You’re right, he never left. So maybe we’re all just coming home. Welcome home, ‘Murrica.
Happy DMB Day 2009!
