Than you Charonsdog you gave me a gift to start my day! Which led to this.....
My wife and I were totally well out in the 1980's....... to be honest we were totally well out by the mid 1960's. So many of our friends had left the religion that we never felt isolated.
The music from that time remained a regular part of our identify. The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Credence Clearwater the Allman Brothers......... the list was endless.
Every year the music got richer and better.
My wife and I went to our very first concert In Portchester N.Y. It was the Joe Cocker and Mad Dogs and Englishmen Tour.. We were Six rows from the stage which had some thirty to forty musicians , groupies, two dogs and a couple of chickens....... I kid you not. Three hours later we left the concert stunned, slightly deaf and sprinkled with Cocker's sweat.
This old Jazz drumming youngster turned to Rock and Roll the way Moses went up a mountain and snatched up the ten commandments.
