A person I know sings for two bands; one hard rock, and the other a mix of classic and new rock. The hard rock band I've been going to see for years. The "mix" band however, I hadn't seen till last night.
He invited me out to see them earlier this past week and I said sure; when and where? And that is when things went slightly off track.
Dudette went shopping today. When she got home she had a couple surprises for me. She told me was picking up a new CD for me. But when she got home from shopping with CK, she dropped several CD's on me.
Saturday is the Van Hagar concert. I have the seat I want and am ready for the show. In today's paper there was an article about the show and the band members. It sounded like all the information I already knew about with a little bit of new stuff thrown in.
The tour is supposed to end Nov.16th. Then the band will take a break before heading back to the studio to record a new CD. It did not mention whether or not Hagar would be part of that process.
It also talk a bit about Eddie's health issues. Though they didn't come out and say anything, it did leave the impression (at least to me) that this may be a last, or next to last band tour. Can't quite put my finger on it. But that was the feel I got.
Crosby, Stills and Nash put on one hellava show. Though the stage was Spartan in its equipment, the band put forth some great sound. Very little stage theatrics were needed, the music and lyrics did the work.
A writer for the local newspaper (which will remain nameless--I'm a little steamed at their comments) carried on about how good the show was despite equipment troubles that plagued Steven Stills (and there were the first half of the show, between guitar issues and amp/speaker issue, I thought the tech was going to get hit or quit. And, I thought Stills was going to leave stage all together.) But the rest of the band moved around with different songs to give everyone the time needed to correct the problems. Not like they were at a loss for material.
