2016 is a harsh year on music.



This is what I went to see with my 17 year old and her friend with last night in Helsinki. Flew up yesterday morning and of course the pilots union went on strike 4 hours after we got there so now its the overnight ferry to Stockholm and a rental car back to Göteborg. Thank god next month is ZZTop And Bruce locally.

Not a huge fan of The Boss but I love me some ZZ !
I was dating a bass player who would fill in on soundboard for touring bands.
He worked one of their shows and I got to tag along.
Needed something to put on my badge so I was dressing room hostess lol.
Met and talked to them for a short time before the show but when they were finished they went straight to the limos.
Budweiser was sponsoring the tour but Bill Ham ran a tight ship when it came down to sex drugs and rock n roll.
Not one beer was taken from any of the ice chests.
Got back to the hotel and discovered I had an open tab in the bar....
Nice guys.

I listen to a Swedish rock band named Ghost, they won the grammy for best rock performance this year. Worth checking out!

My 9 year old daughter has been on a Frank Sinatra kick recently so I've been playing a lot of Frank, Dean, Sammy, etc.  It's so cool to be drinving along and hear my daughter belt out "That's Life" along with Frank.

There is a double CD of "A night on the town with the rat pack " , sounds like a good gift for her.

https://archive.org/details/etree has a lot of really great music. It's live show recordings. IMO about 90% of it is not that good or so-so, and 10% is great, and with the amount of music they have that turns out to be a lot of great stuff.

Steve Kimock, String Cheese Incident and Green Light are some of my favorite bands on there.

Here's a great show from Green Light. I would say they're bluesy rock.

Laurenlulu, how unbelievably sad. I am so sorry. I have two children and I can only imagine your grief. I'm glad that Josh Groban can take away some of the pain. :(

Lauren i know the pain of losing someone. Of course i can´t imagine your pain since i am not a father, but i did lose my father last year and yesterday lost my paternal grandmother (who was basically my second mother). 

I´m so sorry about your loss.

He was a very loving and lived to make others happy. He was 20, we were going to go on a cruise out of New Orleans for his 21st bday (I was the one person he wanted to spend it with), he was going to get ordained and marry my sweetheart and I in June saying Do you Charles take Lauren and Travis. He was my love and my light every day. Depression is difficult to escape no matter how much reasoning is heard or hugs and kisses felt. Thank you for your kind words, the world lost a beautiful soul.
