Andrew McConnell’s Spirit Lives On During Widespread Panic’s NYE Run in Atlanta

By Max Stewart

In looking back at the Widespread Panic’s December 29th show in Atlanta, we have to honor and remember Live Music Daily’s late founder and musical champion, Andrew McConnell. The show marked just over a year since Andrew passed, but his glowing spirit surely shined from above for a band he loved dearly and covered for the site many times (including a superb interview with Jimmy Herring).

From the very-fitting opener “Heaven” to the celestially-lit encore of “North,” I routinely looked up at the starry-night ceiling at the Fox and envisioned Andrew’s excited gaze as Widespread Panic kicked off their New Year’s Eve run.

As long as the band plays on, Andrew’s spirit will be alive and well. R.I.P.
