I witnessed that last night. Man how the times they have changed.
I've started wearing earplugs to indoor concerts. You can hear and feel the music just fine and I've found that I like being able to hear normally as I walk back to my car after the show.
WHAT'D YOU SAY!
It was an excellent concert. I'll tell ya what - Billy Gibbons, who has always been one of my favorites, is an excellent guitar player. Especially on the slide guitar. We had excellent seats to the left of the stage and right in front of the big screen. I just sat there and watched him play the guitar and was enthralled.
They did a Hendrix tribute, while showing old pics of the group with Jimi, and did a version of Foxy Lady that I wish I could get on tape. He had the guitar licks down.
Now I realize, since I'm in my 50's, that I'm not getting any younger and now part of the "over the hill" gang; but I just couldn't get use to seeing these 68 yr old grandparents who had taken the grandchildren to this concert and then seeing grandma stand up and shake it, while flicking a BIC lighter, and singing along to "Tube Snake Boogie".
I kept telling myself "something ain't right with this picture!"
