Fingers crossed that the show I have tickets for on Thursday still happens. Megadeth, Lamb of God, Trivium and Hatebreed. I’m surely the only WS forum active member seeing this tour.

If it gets canceled, at least my tinnitus won’t have a flare up. Following some band members on Instagram, it’s interesting reading the lengths bands are going to in order to avoid tours coming to a halt. Bands and their road crews are basically in bubbles like sports teams were last year. No shared meals or hanging out with other bands like they normally do. A couple of months ago I was thinking we were on a firm path to normalcy. Thanks, morons.

When I was 18, possibly 19 I was going to sleep when I heard this tone somewhere in the house. I went from the basement to the second floor trying to find it and then I realized that it was in my own ear. I'm pretty sure that I can track it to a concert by beloved local Chicago blues and boogie band, Siegal/Schwall, at Mundelein College in Rogers Park, on the farthest northside of Chicago. From the headbanging music you listen to I assume it was also a concert you attended that contributed to your tinnitus. If only I'd known I would have worn earplugs.

However, I had a miracle occur about 3 months ago: After 50 years (!) of hearing this tone (fortunately not during the day) and getting used to it during the night, it just went away. It is absolutely the strangest thing; people don't usually just get better as they grow older. So bill give it another 15 to 20 years, you never know.

Thanks. I trace it to wearing earbuds in the gym (when I worked out) with the music too loud. I eventually backed way off on the volume. Thankfully it never seemed too severe, and has subsided. It was most noticeable when laying down at night, and always better in the morning. I’m definitely more cautious now. Even when listening to “calmer” forms of music, I like to feel it as much as hear it.

You might be surprised.  Now I won't be going to ANY concert any time soon thanks to COVID.  But I'm a Megadeth fan.  I listen regularly.  Matter of fact, I'm a huge metal fan from way back.  Judas Priest popped my cherry with their Point of Entry album.  It's been straight to hell from there. \m/

I saw YES perform in the round at the Arena Theater in Houston last week.  My first time to see them since the passing of drummer Alan White.  It was a nice show (with a display of Roger Dean art in the lobby) but I can't help hoping that Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman may one day reunited with Steve Howe.  That being said, I'd give the show 7 out of 10 stars.

Been to a few country shows (Midland, Cody Jinks, Randy Rogers Band), but the most recent highlight was seeing Marcus Mumford solo, at a small theater out here in San Diego.  It was amazing.  The guy is top class for me.  His new solo album is great.  But the highlight was definitely him saying that he'd sing the Ted Lasso theme song.  He started into it and went,"Yeaaaaaahhhhhh-----skip intro".  You have to be a Ted Lasso fan to get it, but it was hilarious.  

Attended two concerts recently with the first being a four-band line-up featuring Viking metal group Amon Amarth.  The first three bands were are terrible but Amon Amarth had great visuals to their performance.

The second show featured Judas Priest with Queensryche as the support act.  I went to see Queensryche and was not disappointed in their performance.  Judas Priest surprised me though and I left impressed with them.  Too bad is was the final show of the tour.
