Old Man, you've seen some epic shows. Ever seen Hendrix or Quicksilver MS?


No, but my best friend did see Hendrix in Chicago--I could kill him even today for not inviting me. However see below for another coup in my eyes.

The *rumor* is that he has begun working on new material. That would be... just wow. IMO, the best standup of all time. Not just because of "the moose".

It's shameless bragging time. I saw Woody Allen, with my best friend, on the last tour he ever did. It was at the rotating circle-in-the-round theatre at Mill Run Theatre in Niles IL. He opened it up to questions at one point and I asked what his was currently working on--It was Love And Death. I still tell people of his style, the way he worked, and the occasional nervous laughter in the room. It was great.

My friend and I were under age but we did score some booze at the bar at intermission--Cold Duck!

The opening act was Jim Croce, just him on acoustic with another acoustic player who played lead. Wasn't a fan of his music, but it was very nice.

Side note--His widow, Ingrid Croce, was a brave pioneer of San Diego's Gas Lamp section. When she opened Croces, it was pretty much her place, some porn shops and x-rated theatres, and a lot of board up windows. Jump to today and the area is a major tourist attraction.
