Matthews said the origins of "Big Whiskey" came from a chance encounter with a local New Orleans drunk during a photo shoot for the new album. When the band was shooting promotional photos outside of Preservation Hall in the French Quarter of New Orleans, they encountered a local man playing harmonica who was asking tourists for money so he could buy "a big whiskey." Lessard gave Matthews a $20 bill to hand the man, who walked off in celebration. Trumpet player Rashawn Ross then suggested the phrase for the title of the album, which Matthews liked because people wouldn't have to call the album by the more difficult to say "GrooGrux".
Does anyone remember when someone threw a water bottle at Lewis Black in 2007? Maybe that is what this is.. Any thoughts
Were you really so lazy that a) you didn't look at the date of the post to see that this is weeks old and came before the lineup was released, and b) that you couldn't look 5 posts above yours and see that someone posted this exact same comment?
