Since it seems appearent that the Dirty Delta Blues Band is no longer Chan's backing band I thought I'd post some of my favorite video clips featuring them. The DDBB backed Chan longer than any of her other previous backing bands. From 12/2/06 in Barcelona to 2/9/12 in Istanbul.
The Dirty Delta Blues Band:
Gregg Foreman - Keyboards, Guitar, Vocal
Judah Bauer - Guitar
Erik Paparazzi- Bass
Jim White - Drums
The thing that sticks out for me is that on a lot of the earlier shows the band kind of continues what the Memphis Rhythm Band were doing. "Could We" and "Satisfaction" were often done in this real upbeat rave-up style and other songs were really upbeat. However, later on, in 2008 concerts would be more mid-tempo with songs from the Jukebox album. And by 2010, some concerts were seemingly almost all slow songs. There seemed to be a gradual drift towards slower material.
Here are some clips that I thought were interesting:
12/2/06 - Debut performance of the DDBB. First 2 songs, "The Greatest" and "Living Proof":
12/5/06 - "Crazy". I think this is much more rocking than the Memphis Rhythm Band versions.
5/1/07 - "New York, New York". Early performance.
5/7/07 - DDBB Soundcheck with Chan on drums.
6/5/08 - "Silver Stallion". "And get the fuck out of here..."
10/26/08 - "Fortunate Son" with Neil Young.
7/21/09 - "Sea Of Love" with xylophone.
5/21/10 - "Metal Heart". Everybody sang along to everything at this concert.
10/2/10 - "Dont Explain". From the Matador at 21 Concert.
7/3/11 - "Ruin". Paris.
2/9/12 - "Jam". Istanbul. With Chan on drums, this is the last DDBB live song from their last concert.

First time that i see footage from Chan singing with Neil Young!
The singalong version of Metal Heart is terrific: i knew that this song was a potential anthem!
Bitchin', complainin' !
