Classic concerts

Both shows featured artists at their storytelling and performing bests. Fogerty opened with my fave Creedence song, Up Around The Bend.

Indeed movies chronicles many of the shows and most of the

First off a get well wish to regular Saturday blogger, our friend Mitch Tobol, who some of us fondly call by his nom de pen, webmaster.  A bit under the weather, we wish him to get well.  I am honored to be called in to pinch-blog.  Here goes: Not much of a secret around Gotham when it comes to my fondness towards a certain band's music, and weari
