It’s been a long time since I rock and rolled....

What do you do if you're a lawyer who's made more money than you could ever spend but you find something's missing in life? Grab that old quitar that's been gathering dust in the corner and form a band, of course. And become a concert promoter so you can do stuff like open for ZZ Top. The band is Image 6, and they're not bad. Sort of a Seattle grunge sound. And they played at Antone's this evening. They played mostly originals, but their rendition of A Flock of Seagulls' "I Ran" was the real standout. Much better than the hairdresser version.

And then there's Led Zepland. A Led Zeppelin tribute band, if you hadn't guessed. As you may recall from my RockFest review, I'm not really a big Led Zeppelin fan. I really want to like them, but for some reason I just can't seem to pull it off. And that goes for Led Zepland as well. The band is very good, but their singer wasn't consistently convincing as Robert Plant. And what is Led Zeppelin without Plant's vocals?

Flock of Seagulls? I thought it was Duran Duran. No wonder you were looking at me like I had two heads when I kept talking about Duran Duran. Damn Stolies.

Well maybe someday when you're a lawyer who's made more money than you could ever spend....
Maybe you could pull off Robert Plant ;-)

Dearest Wang -- I enjoyed Image 6 much more than the Led Zep tribute. Led Zep was never one of my favorites either. I never did like watching Robert Plant perform -- he just creeped me out, but I do like his singing voice. While I understand the concept of a "tribute band," I can't seem to get past the ridiculous wigs and outfits worn by the guys in the band. For me, it is not necessary for these people to dress and act the part. Just play the tribute and play it well.

You might have had more fun drinking $1.00 long necks at the old Dixie. I know it was cheaper.

Baxter thanks you for your concern about "No puppy left behind".
