  1. After the recent deaths of Lemmy (bass player), David Bowie (singer), Glenn Frey (guitar player) I was jokingly thinking that drummers should beware. "All the Young Dudes" came on the radio and I thought I'd check out Ian Hunter's site to see if he any posts about David Bowie. (David wrote the song). He had a post that the drummer for Mott the Hoople, Dale Griffin, just passed away on Sunday.
  2. I plan on asking them which parrot video's they've seen on you tube!! I hope everyone knows that I'm only joking about going but the event does really exist. I would somewhat understand the whole thing if it was a fundraiser for a good cause but I don't think it was. AnneNR...I've been to SF a few times as well as Monterey and SD. I love it out there. The coast is beautiful!! You're lucky to live in the area.
  3. They did mention in the article that they had a similar event for the Starsky & Hutch guys. I guess we wouldn't think it was so odd if it was someone that we really wanted to see!!!! AnneNR...it's in Anaheim (don't know what part of CA you are in) and there are 8 tickets left at Chip's table. So..... you may want to think about going. I didn't look up Beaver Clever...I was too busy watching parrot videos!
  4. Do you ever get bored and try to think of something to search online for? For some unknown reason I looked up My Three Sons. I watched the show but was never star struck by the guys. Did you know that you can see "Chip & Katie" at a 6 hour event this year and for $400 you can sit at their dinner table with 7 other people!! LOL!!! You don't get to sit with both for $400...only one or the other! I learned that it's probably time to limit my internet access!!! Especially in wee hours of the morning when I have to work the next day. I have to admit...I did have a good laugh about it when I told friends that I got tickets..they weren't sure if I was kidding or not.
  5. A group of people had been waiting at the side entrance of the hotel that was across from an entrance to Public Hall. A few performers had come out of the hotel....The Foo Fighters and Jason White from Green Day. It was getting close to the start of the show and most of the people left. A few of us wondered if Green Day was still inside since Jason had just come out. We didn't want to miss the show but didn't want to miss seeing them so close up. A security person said to wait around a few minutes because someone big was coming. An SUV pulled up to the doors across the street and Paul got out along with his wife. They didn't go inside right away. People yelled out to him and he turned a few times and waved at us before he went inside.
  6. Bill Withers was also inducted. He was hilarious. He sounded more like a stand up comedian. Stevie Wonder inducted him. Bill made some comment about not using the teleprompter and Stevie said he hadn't used it either. Bill said something about not taking too long in his speech because Stevie would have to use the bathroom soon. He made a lot of other funny comments. Check out some of the highlights online to see if you can find some of his comments.
  7. Did anyone else here get to go? We had a great time. We saw Paul McCartney arrive right before the ceremony. He looked great and waved to us few fans who were hanging around outside before the show.It worked out well...we got inside about 10 minutes after the show started because of this and were able to miss Mylie Cyrus on stage! Unfortunately it was when she was performing with Joan Jett who we would've liked to have seen. I'm a big Green Day fan and went to the show to see them get inducted. They put on a great show as always and did "Boys" with Ringo. Paul and Ringo seemed to be having a lot of fun joking around when Paul was inducting Ringo. We were able to see their table from our seats in the balcony. Yoko was sitting at their table along with Jerry Lee Lewis. Paul was actually up dancing to Green Day during their set. The end was a treat when Paul and Ringo sang together with all of the other performers on stage. It was an unforgettable night! I'm glad we were able to be there. I was also able to attend Green Day's show at the House of Blues on Thursday. They give the best live performance of any band I've ever seen!!!
  8. I was in a Ruby Tuesday's and a song called "There She Goes Again" (not Velvet Underground or The La's) came on. I really liked the song and searched the internet for days trying to find it. I finally came across it on You Tube. It was done by Richard Lloyd. Has anyone listened to him? He was also in a band called Television. I started checking out his other music and really enjoyed it. I thought is was interesting how hearing a song in a restaurant introduced me to music from years ago that I would never have known about.
  9. I don't know if this was ever posted here. I found it while randomly searching images. Found it at: https://jaydeanhcr.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/random-thoughts-for-friday-august-10th-2012/
  10. AnneNR: People were posting their condolences on Kay Bryson's Face Book page.
  11. I was playing on Face Book and saw on Kay's page that Wally's mother passed away last week.
  12. We were talking about Ian Hunter in another topic and it reminded me of Freedy Johnston. He opened for Ian in Cleveland in November. That was the first time I heard him. I really enjoyed his music and didn't realize that he's been around for a long time. Has anyone ever heard his music before? Check him out on You Tube. He did an acoustic show opening for Ian but unfortunately he didn't finish his set. I'm assuming it was due to a really rude bunch of people at the show talking loud and yelling out for Ian during his set. And it never fails... the worst one in the crowd had to be standing right in front of me!!!!
  13. I was at the Ian Hunter show that you posted the video from. Here is video from a couple of years ago where he sings "Standing in My Light". It was great live! If you like him check out music from his recent CD "When I'm President". It has a lot of great music.
  14. I've always been a Rod Stewart fan and have been going to see him for close to 40 years. He still puts on a great show and has always seemed to enjoy performing. This past year I have also seen Ian Hunter (around 75 years old) and Peter Wolf at a small venue. I really enjoyed the shows. They sounded really good. All three still have that rock star look and are still great front men.
  15. Eric: Are you planning on going to the Rock and Roll HOF Induction Ceremony since you live in the area and especially since Ringo is being honored?
  16. I"m a big Green Day fan and am thrilled that the induction ceremony is in Cleveland again! I just got tickets for the ceremony! I have always been a big Rod Stewart/Faces fan and was able to go to the induction ceremony a few years ago. Green Day opened that show and inducted Guns N Roses. It's great that I'll get to see two of my all time favorites inducted into the Rock Hall. One good thing about living in NE Ohio!! I wonder if Eric is going to attend. Especially if Ringo is being honored.
  17. "Love is all that matters, faithful and forever...."
  18. I saw LongTimeFan's post about Eric performing at the Michael Stanley Tribute show. I checked out this site and didn't see anything mentioned but googled and found him mentioned in an article at Land of Cleveland. I assumed he was going to be at the show and wanted to get tickets while there were still good seats available. I like Michael Stanley and enjoy seeing him in concert but was also going to the show because of Eric. I assumed that Michael wasn't really going to be performing and didn't really care about seeing the other performers. I went to order seats and found a really good pair were still available and went throught the check out process but kept getting an error message about my payment option. I called the ticket company and was put on hold and I finally hung up. I never did get the tickets and now I guess that was a good thing! It's really crappy that the promoter put that info out there. Do they realize that fans come from all over, especially those on this site, not just locally, and could have been really inconvenienced relying on their false information. Did you go to the link to the Cleveland Performing Arts Center that was on the Michael Stanley Tribute Site. Maybe someone there can help you if the ticket agency wouldn't. Good Luck!
  19. I love sweet wine. I found a really good white and red in a brand called Contero. The white is Moscato D'asti and their red is Brachetto D'aqui. They are very sweet.
  20. I went to see Rod Stewart in Pittsburgh last night. I've been going to his shows for over 30 years and thought he still put on a great show. It was the audience that I couldn't stand! The majority of the crowd was older. The row in front of us had that "one" person that had to stand the whole time while everyone else was sitting. She never looked around to see if she was in anyone's way and didn't sit down during any part of the show. I have no problem with standing and dancing at a concert. I've stood the whole time when I've had floor seats and knew that everyone else was up. There were people a few rows behind that did not stop talking the entire show. Then there were the people in the middle of our row who had to get up a few times during the show to get alcohol. The most irritating thing to watch were people walking to their seats before and during the show carrying trays of food!!! Not just chips and salsa. People had burrito's and pizza boxes. I guess Pizza Hut has a stand in the arena and we saw pizza boxes everywhere after the show. People were walking down the steps to their 10th row floor seats with a lot of food while Rod was singing. It's not a movie people!!! Can't you go two hours without food!!!! Watch the show!!!!! Stay home!!!! We had gone to see Green Day a couple of years ago at the same place and didn't know what to expect from the crowd since most of them were probably 25 or more years younger than us. We were really surprised....we didn't notice any of the above and after the show everyone was courteous while leaving. Anyone here have the same bad experiences at concerts or am I just getting old!!!!
  21. We saw Peter Wolf this past weekend at the Kent Stage in Kent Ohio. We went not really knowing what to expect and ended up really enjoying the show. He had a three piece band (no drums and an upright bass.) He did a wide range of songs ranging from his popular rock and roll songs to Johnny Cash songs. He was great with the audience and told some interesting stories before each song. If he is ever in your area think about checking out his show even if he is someone you wouldn't normally think about going to see.
  22. Thanks for your input. I don't know if he's actually on tour. The theater seats about 600 people and gets some decent performers. I don't know why they stop at such a small place in a small town. We recently saw Ian Hunter there and it was a great show.
  23. Has anyone here seen any of Peter Wolf's shows in the past few years? He is coming to the Kent Stage in Ohio in May. It's a great place to see a concert. We never really followed a lot of his later music but are considering going to his show just to hear some good rock and roll. Just wondering if anyone had any comments. Thanks
