Hello! Here is the "more later" update....yes, you read correctly. I went to a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert and I must say it was a rather "interesting" experience. First off, let me say that I discovered apart from "Freebird" and "Sweet Home Alabama" (as well as a some called something like "that smell"...which I heard once in passing and really wish I could forget...), I know absolutely zero percent more of their catalogue of music. Really it's not such a bad thing since I was really treating my parents to the "performance". Second, Southern Rock, as they are classified, is really an acquired test....apparantly not my own either. Cie la vie...I'll chalk it up to an experience none the less and can say I did see a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group live and in living color. (Okay, not the only one I've seen.....my concert adventures include groups ranging from Aerosmith to NSYNC to Sister Hazel and so on....loads of fun!)
The experience portion of night was really in the people watching. The crowd consisted of a split demographic...some teens, and then more long time fans. Surprisingly, the non-teens were the more interesting "entertainment"....although I think (no, I HOPE) that the alcoholic beverages were to blame. I mean seriously, if not for adverting my eyes, I fear my retinas would have been burned permanently with the images. So as not to scar potential readers of this post, I will only vaguely allude to the two older gents clearly three sheets to the wind that proceeded to dance with abandonment....one with his wife (presumedly) and the other with a chair. Yep....just let your imaginiation ruminate on that for a few minutes....then DELETE.
All in all, still have a decent time. The opening act was a group called Blackberry Smoke (again, not my cup of tea....definitely went with the main act's style in both looks and sound). The second group was Rev Theory....from what I could hear (anyone of you that has been to a concert knows exactly what I mean here) sounded pretty good, although they were more Rock or Hard Rock as opposed to the featured style. Several hour drive later and I landed on my home "planet" and proceeded to sleep for many hours to come....and there is my excuse for lack of blog updates. Sorry about that! I did manage to get some reading in though, one book will be stopping by the blog on a virtual tour later this month (thus a review will be on hold til then) and a couple more will be hitting the site in the next day or so. Thanks for sticking with me and ...
Until next time....happy reading!
