Open: Train Kept A Rollin' Got the crowd on their feets AND RoCKIN!!!! Followed up by 90'S power Eat The Rich and getting me effortlessly and as pain-free as humanly possible through my least preferred Aerosmith era, the 80's with Love In An Elevator and Living On The Edge, BEFORE taking me in the time capsule to Toys In The Attic and my fave First album.  Editors Note: I believe this is a run-on sentence BUT I DON'T give a crap cuz' I'm excited writing this*
Cuz is a word, right?   
A

Bonus selections: Walkin' The Dog from the first album and NO More, NO More from Toys In The attic which I actually WAIT to see! The Fleetwood Mac cover, Stop Messin' Around is a You Tube fave of mine and a great demonstration of Joe Perry guitar prowess! A++++++  

The Players: 66 year old Steven Tyler is frozen In time! His moves, his energy, his vocals, his flamboyancy, his power are real and fully evident. I became 16 years old all over again for just one night!
 A++++++++
Joe Perry: Ageless, powerful, a master showman! A+

Joey Kramer: The jet engine that drives the energy of this legendary Rock N Roll band! A++

Note: He was fantastic and accommodating, funny and friendly in the soundcheck Q & A VIP party and it made my night. I will purchase his signature RoCKIN & Roastin' coffee on-line as the direct result of my one on one experience! 

  
Brad Whitford: Steady, Accomplished, Rockin'. Very genuine with his fans and us at soundcheck party as well, the same for bassist Tom Hamilton! A

CROWD: Wide ranging in age 17-70 who became the conduits of high voltage for these aging stars who gave us all hope and reassurance that "you're never too old to rock and roll. Crowd was loud proud and decent, the perfect crowd in all my experience. A+++

SUMMARY: This tour run ends September 12th. BUT as Joey Kramer told us, "we are a live band, that's what we DO!" Check your listings and crank up your local ROCK station for news of the next go-around. You will not be disappointed! A+++++

NEW MUSIC: David Bromberg/ David Bromberg Band

ONLY SLIGHTLY MAD: (2014)

Love the Blues rhythm (feel) and I hit "repeat" on Track #4 I'll Take You Back, but the slow, drowsy country twang feel of some cuts and the down tempo story telling feel of the Folksy selections have never been my cup of tea..

Cuban to the Rescue

He who does NOT agree with the outspoken Cuban is living in a cloud! wE ARE all..




DALLAS (Reuters) - Outspoken Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban fended off social media criticism on Thursday for his "bigoted" response when asked at a business conference to address the controversy over banned Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling.
Overcoming bigotry requires acknowledging internal prejudices, Cuban said in a video-recorded interview shown on Wednesday at the GrowCo convention hosted by Inc magazine.
"If I see a black kid in a hoodie and it's late at night, I'm walking to the other side of the street. And if on that side of the street, there’s a guy that has tattoos all over his face - white guy, bald head, tattoos everywhere - I’m walking back to the other side of the street," he said in the interview that was posted on the Internet.
Critics said his "hoodie" reference recalled the 2012 shooting of unarmed, black Florida teenager Trayvon Martin, who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt when he was fatally wounded in a struggle with a man who said he feared for his life.Cuban defended his views on Twitter, saying that his quotes were not meant to advocate racism.
"The point was that before we can help others deal w racism we have to be honest about ourselves,"
