Dwight Yoakam and X at the Annenberg Space in Century City. Yoakam's band slayed, especially the lead guitarist.
X had a temporary guitarist standing in for Billy Zoom, who is undergoing chemo treatment for bladder cancer. I didn't catch the name of his replacement.
Hope Billy comes out of it well. X is an old favorite and when I moved to California 25 years ago it allowed me to see them quite a few times as they play here much more often. At the same time it cost me many Lou Reed shows but life is about trade offs.
At 52 I'm not done with X shows yet. Get well Billy Zoom!
X is still one of my favorite bands and shows, 8+ times. Saw them in early days then later in 80's when Billy was not the guitarist and recently 6 months ago with him at guitar. He is incredible....my favorite quote by him is he how laughs at guitarists making "painful/soulful faces playing riffs" and he TRIES (and acheives) doing as difficult and more by being stoic. Classic punk.....good luck Billy Zoom.
