Dave, 

I will take your spot Thursday, you just have to let Sully know because I am not sure if I still have the feature apps. Sometimes he leaves them there and sometimes he doesn't.

OH Thursday

Fresh back from multiple vacations and my daughter’ discharge from active duty USMC and I find that we are in the middle of the early summer sports lull.

two of my sons at 30mph...not easy on a tube

 

I am not a soccer fan. The Germany 7-1 beating of faux favorite and host Brazil was the thing that could draw fans from the dark side. The NFL equivalent would be 49-7 and that’s what we are talkin’ bout.

 

MLB The home town team is in the position of seller because they are much closer to the AL East cellar then the top spot.

Training camps are just a few weeks away for the NFL.

Summer leagues are playing for the NBA, actually better B ball than the regular season for the most part, at least more watchable.

 

Sully had a question of the day I saw when I got back to the gab, that’s me sitting in the corner table at the posh “Mo’s Bar”

Who was your first concert and who opened for them.

I went to HS in the 1960’s

Rock and Roll

Vietnam war

Woodstock

Kennedy

Nixon…

 I went to as many concerts at every venue available as I could possibly fit into my schedule.

Hence my hearing loss.

I saw the Stones at Boston Garden in 1969, I think November.

BB King was one of the opening acts and that’s when I fell for the Blues.

I was 17 at the time.

I saw Pink Floyd at the old Providence Civic Center (now known as the Dunk) in 1973

Great live show.

Boston had a load of small venues in town and it was a regular thing to stop at the Jazz Workshop, Paul’s Mall, Katies or the Paradise in Kenmore Square to see the likes of James Taylor, Muddy Waters, Myles Davis, Taj Mahal, Ry Cooder, Captain Beefheart and George Benson.    These small venues were a great place to see a good show at a reasonable price and you just never knew that one of these artists could make it big.

One of my old favorites from those recreational days was

 

Captain Beefheart , ( Don Van Vliet 1941-2010) played from time to time with Frank Zappa and the Mothers along with a career with his own band. Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band had several albums with some success and his shows were very entertaining as he invited audience participation.

His most successful venture was the album Trout Mask Replica with is # 58 on Rolling Stones 300 best rock albums of all time list. Take the time to check out this unique artist and poet.

Two Trains…two railroad tracks

One going and the other coming back

 

The black paper between the mirror makes me said that I can’t go

Steal softly thru sunshine steal softly thru snow.

I was going to weigh in on Johnny Manzel but BOB took care of that Harry…

quiet end to a great weekend

I may even be back to real sports next week, have a great day
