At the present time, this idea is merely in the concept stage, but certain members of the New Riders of the Purple Sage have been asked to regroup for a few gigs on the east coast at the beginning of October (5/6/7/8/9) and a gig in Las Vegas on Halloween. Specifically, David Nelson and Buddy Cage have been asked. It is uncertain whether John Dawson would or could participate, although he will certainly be asked. When he was asked about this, David Nelson said "I would consider this IF..." and went on to list his concerns. However, certain people only heard "I would" and translated that to YES! and it is all over the net. Not a done deal by a long shot, but it is a possibility. Any thoughts?
BTW, this has nothing to do with those impostors calling themselves the New Riders at Rancho Nicasio on September 30. Do not support that - it is a travesty and as the King (from The King and I) would say, "It is a false lie." Last time they played Nicasio, they used an old photo with John Dawson in it and McDuke was not even in the country. And they frequently bandy about David Nelson's good name. I reiterate, do not support this effort. It is not sanctioned or authorized.
