McCartney at Dodger Stadium

I knew dozens of people at this show. Oddly, none of them offered me a free ticket.

But we live in a world of miracles, wonder, and the intertubes.

I imagine this will be gone shortly.

But while it's up, enjoy.

Thirty Years In the Blink of an Eye

Let's Active reformed this weekend for a benefit concert in North Carolina. Well, as much as they could reform after the suicide of Faye Hunter last year.

Here they are rehearsing for a tour in 1984:


And here they are onstage in 2014 (original members Mitch Easter and Sara Romweber with Suzi Ziegler from Game Theory on bass, Missy Thangs from Love Language on keyboards and singer Lynn Blakey):

Memory Failure

From the pre-dawn of their disco era (when they were toying with being more of an R&B act), here's a Bee Gees song that I must have heard a million times.

A song I believed was some sort of heartfelt declaration of love.

Until I heard it the other day... and realized it is one of the creepiest songs every written.

And maybe one of the first songs ever about stalking.

George Harrison Covers John Lennon

Live in 1974, with slide guitar and wailing sax.

With lots of feeling, even though the voice sounds really (Dark) hoarse.
