    ATTENTION Proud graying hippies! Today's Moody Blues Tour the US starting September

    My first rock concert was B. B. King for Creedence Clearwater Revival Band at The Filmore (not West).

    After that I remember none but the Moody Blues, the Moody in California, in North and South Carolina and Georgia. I took my teen-aged daughter to Moody Blues at Chastain Park for the full old-folks rock concert experience- pot, puke and pizz.

    Anyway, they're touring the US this year - http://moodybluestoday.com/

    With lots of memories - http://www.moodybluestoday.com/index...ent/pid/400328

    I just went and looked at my t-shirt collection; Moody Blues, Pink Floyd, Tangerine Dream, and a bunch of heavy-duty classical, ballet and opera.

    Who can forget Nights in White Satin and Tuesday Afternoon?
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    My wife and I attended a Moody Blue's concert a few years ago. It was held at the Durham (N.C.) Performing Arts Center (DPAC), and very good, btw. For those who have not been there, it's very cool place to see a concert.
    Anyway, I remember remarking to my wife how many of the people in the lobby were bald. Many of the men who weren't bald had gray hair, some in pony tails. There were a few tie-dyed shirts in the mix, and a surprising number of young fans in the 20's.
    All-in-all, a great concert. Two thumbs up!!



    I just dug out my M.B. t-shirt, it was the 2010 Tour.

    Nostalgia was never as good as it was supposed to have been. And there is always the chance that I will run ito "that girl". I know what time and gravity have done to me; I do not want to risk seeing what they did to her.

    I buy the CDs from the 50s/60s/70s revivals on PBS, but do not want to see some old geezer trying to look like a rocker. Case in point - I had the hots for her when her first song came out. (Yes, I was a dirty old man even back then.) It's now 50 years later. She looks good as a possible cougar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-7vnnuaoog but that is not what I was lusting after, which was this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hyl7_...layer_embedded .

    Thanks, but I'll sit in my rocking chair on the porch, remembering how I wished it had been.

    stay safe.

    My first concert was Eagles before most knew who they were. That same year: Bonnie Raitt, Marshall Tucker Band, Linda Ronstadt, and Jackson Browne. Most of them, including the Eagles, were small crowds on the campus. All of them went on to be huge, except Ronstadt. She had already been big and became a nobody again a few times before and since.

    Kinda reminds me of a dumb joke I keep telling. Every time somebody talks about this rifle or that shotgun coming with a composite or a wood stock, I remark that, if you can remember Woodstock, you weren't there.
