Nice. Except for the 15 dollar beers.

One time I was headed to a $10/beer place, so I grabbed some stuff to preload in the parking lot.

So I roll up, crack open a can, and start chugging. 2/3s of the way through I realize it was a sour ipa. Then my buddy pulls up as I'm dry heaving in the parking lot.

Lesson learned - look at the can first.

This is good when looking at beers and looking at ladies.

Atlanta after dark is the something else. We were approached by several prostitutes and were offered crack on multiple occasions. So obviously it was a blast.

Ear plugs at a concert?  I'm surrounded by 'that guy.'

Heck the performers all wear them now.  I have hearing loss so there is that as well.


They wear in-ear monitors.

I tried Eardial plugs. I think more detail is audible, but the plugs do filter.

I'm a sound engineer and have worked with some pretty famous players. I like the "superstars." They are more down to earth than the up and comers who often get the stereotypical Rock Star attitude.

I really enjoyed
Billy Idol
Alice Cooper
Heart
ZZ Top
Randy Bachman
Trooper

I did not enjoy any of the country music stuff I've been to or have worked. I also didnt enjoy the BSB/NKOTB.

Saw Earth, Wind and Fire last night.  We were a little worried how they would sound but they were fantastic.  I highly recommend seeing them if you like their music.

I saw them a few months ago. Philip Bailey definitely still has it!

Definitely.  I used to work at a small bar / concert venue.  Every artist / band that was coming up walked around like you owed them something and usually ended up going nowhere.  The guys that had been at it forever always talked to you like you were the only one in the room.  Except for one.  I'm not naming names but be is someone I wish would permanently get lost in the surf.

Yeah.  We Baileys definitely are made of gold.

He really does.  Dude hit every note on Reasons.  Could not believe it.

He was also able to sing Maurice White's lower vocals which pleasantly surprised me.  On their newer stuff he seems to sing everything in the high range and it gets old quick.

We saw Blessed Union of Souls on the free stage at the Fair last night.  I didn't know who they were going in but did recognize several songs from my lost decade of the 90's.  They put on a fantastic show.

No.  But his name did start with a D.  As in Dick.  Seriously.  The guy was an actual dick and a Dick.

This surprises me. I only saw him once and it was in a small venue. He put on a great show. Old school entertainer rather than just a musician. After the show he was at the front door taking the time to talk to people. Shook his hand and thanked him for the show.

I've read that he's straight edge, expects his band to be, and has no tolerance for those that aren't.

Gary Busey looking scary.

Maybe he was having a bad day but he was a tool to the dudes and thought he was a total ladies man.  It was funny to see our waitresses roll their eyes and make puking faces behind his back.

Zappa was in a similar boat, earlier on.

I'm thinking about going to see Stone Sour and Ozzy on Sept. 10.  I should go because I really like Stone Sour and I'm not even sure what to expect from Ozzy these days but hearing the classics would also be cool.  I just don't feel like spending the money...

Songs so down-tuned that they are hard to enjoy. I know he can't sing that high anymore, but it just ruins the songs for me.

It really is time for Ozzy to hang up his singing boots. It can't be that he needs the money anymore,  Maybe he just feels the need to get away from the Missus and Kelly :) I Can't remember the last time I spent money to go see any concerts.  Seen plenty of Theatre shows although Macintosh productions can go do one. Guess I'll just wait for the movie version of Hamilton. It's bound to happen :)

I know, right? They mix up the bands a bit in each city, this is pretty much my favorite combo. I got lucky. Im knocking out 3 bucket list bands in one shot.

Some friends took us to see Steve 'N' Seagulls last night.  I had never heard of them before.  They are a bluegrass band from Finland that plays 80's and 90's metal.  A great time was had by all.
