Re: edit: old topic i bumped up - Jane H. )Joe to do live chat on Facebook

well with 1.975 millon likes on that page I bet that gets a little bit out of control. heck way back in 03 when we had the occasional chat with Joe among a dozen or two folks it was crazy. at least the internet connections are a little more reliable these days, lol.
I am wondering how it will work also? i guess webmaster has that figured out? the fb page doesn't give much explanation so i will stay tuned. if its possible to see the text later or whatever I will try to repost some of it here if I can. i don't think i can make that time but if its there later i will see what i can do.
Thanks for the heads up Cathy

Hi Jane, I avoided signing up for Facebook all this time, but what pushed me over the edge was when I heard Beth Hart was going to have a similar live Q&A on Facebook about a week ago.  Now that I am a member, I can tune into Joe!!!!!!  Yay, just in time.

But what I wanted to mention is that after the Beth live "chat" was over, all the content disappeared and you couldn't go back and review it.  Unless I was doing something wrong, which is very likely!

I agree, it threatens to be a huge technical overload.

Also, this will be perhaps a big distraction for Joe, to do this right before his Santa Barbara show?  May cut his dinnertime short...   smile   but what a treat for the fans!

Re: edit: old topic i bumped up - Jane H. )Joe to do live chat on Facebook

I asked Joe whether he'd ever be touring with a horn section and he replied that he is hoping for 2015!

OK, I missed the event but I just looked over there. There are a few good ones I have read so far.
Gonna do my best to copy some over here and  hope its OK to do so. I know alot of you don't do facebook and it was not exactly a private event so here I go...I'll leave out the other people's names and additional comments and just post question and Joe's reply. not necessarily in order of how they were asked

Thanks Joe, sorry I missed it, looked like it was fun and funny!
