It was 20 years ago today…. BeatleMania Now Review

Last night at the HardRock Paradise Live, Karen and I saw BeatleMania Now — formerly of Broadway fame. Anything Beatles has got to be good, right? RIGHT? We (Karen and I) showed up, and ate at Renegade after trying to decide if we wanted Tatu or not. The waitress saw us and booted our waiter […]

Elton John’s Red Piano: The Review

Red Piano. Yay. I’ve wanted to see Elton’s Red Piano show since it opened but Elton never checked his schedule with mine and every chance I ever had to be in Vegas, Elton was elsewhere. I usually missed him by just a few days. Finally, courtesy of Greg and Gaby, we had tickets for the […]

Today’s Update Of Random Stuff

I am in pain. Excruciating pain. My whiplash (or maybe something related) came back in full force this morning, though I had warning signs yesterday. I had no neck rotation to the left more than an inch or so. Totally crippled due to pain. My chiropractor saw me and made it a bit better, however […]

Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers 7-15-08 Sunrise (With Steve Winwood)

First, a special thank you to Mary and Stephanie for arranging the tickets for last night’s Tom Petty show at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida (aka Fort Lauderdale). The seats were spectacular (134, Row 11) right near the front of the stage. No need for the video screens or binoculars. This was my first live […]

A Double Rocky Frisco

I thought I’d give a little shout-out to my bud Rocky Frisco. I accidentally stumbled upon one of his videos that’s over on YouTube and then found there was a second. Rocky’s a famous musician, and if you haven’t heard of him, it’s your loss. He’s played with some of the greats and regularly tours […]

Vegas Trip Summary

As you know it was a trade show that brought me to Las Vegas on Saturday morning for a stay until Wednesday. The weekend was Greg and Gaby’s 15th anniversary, and perversely, they invited me and Austri to spend it with them. We met up with them around 5pm Saturday for an early dinner at […]

Randomness Part Eight

What a weekend. The Panthers won Friday and Sunday giving us a total of four wins in a row. Yay, Panthers. Next up, I’m sitting in Thomas’ car on Sunday and he’s driving. We’re both wearing seat belts. Though I often give him crap for his driving, he’s a pretty good (i.e.: very cautious) driver. […]

Come on Wolfgang, You’re in Van Halen (Sunrise Concert Review)

So, I finally got to see Van Halen in concert a bit late in life, but it was at least Van Halen and not Van Hagar. I got the second show 2-2-0-08 in Sunrise Florida at the Bank Atlantic Center. As you will know (and if you don’t know, you won’t be reading this post), […]
