Image via WikipediaI get my groove on to Eric Burdon, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Santana, Led Zepplin, Grace Slick, Eric Clapton and so many more. Woodstock would have been perfect for me except I was a little too young to attend... and I lived in Canada...and it was almost impossible to get there....and did I mention I was 13? That year for Christmas my brother gave me the Woodstock album and I was so cool. Hendrix, Canned Heat, Arlo Guthrie, Richie Havens I could go on and on. I still have that album. No turntable to play it on but the album is just fine.
A while back I went to see Eric Burdon & the Animals locally. Oh how much fun was that. All us middle aged people mixed in with lots of 20 somethings rockin to the music.
That kind of gritty rock gets into your very being. You hear it and it takes you back in time and you feel so good.
Image via WikipediaTonight my BB Guy and our two sons are at a Santana concert in Vegas. It was touch and go if the concert was even going to be on due to the flu going around the band on Wednesday when they had to cancel the concert that night. The first time Santana has canceled in 40 years.
I got the phone call tonight from the concert of course. I could hear the music in the background. That guitar vibrating and wailing. The crowd screaming and I was so jealous. I wanted to be there. They have an awesome table at the concert and are just rocking their brains out.
The BB Guy mentioned something about Shakira and Beyonce sitting with them (Shakira having just broken up with her boyfriend of many years) but I don't believe him. He is just trying to make me jealous because he knows Johnny Depp is over here with me. Did you see him fresh off the cover of Vanity Fair? Come to momma my little pirate.
Now I know he isn't a rock star but he does play the guitar and this is my fantasy so I can pick him if I want.
So tell me you wild and crazy ladies. What bands did you scream for? What concerts did you spend your hard earned babysitting money on?
