Today was one of those rainy and cool days, the perfect kind of day to stay inside and take care of long put off tasks and hobbies. One task that has been put off for years was to update my concert ticket scapbook and after seeing the Eagles Friday night, the time had come. Yeah, I’m one of those anally organized types who has saved most of the ticket stubs from concerts I’ve attended and they do kind of bring back memories when looking through the many shows I’ve seen. Well, todays trip down memory lane found me shocked when I turned to this page and saw that I had seen………..
Yep, looks like I saw Joe Bonnamassa before he was………. Joe Bonamassa. Funny thing is, I don’t really remember them so I must not have been too impressed but then again, the Concord Pavillion was a brutally sound challenged venue. Lot’s of concrete and outdoors, it wasn’t uncommon for people to start booing the mixing crew when it was obvious they were performing sub-par and opening acts were quite often cannon fodder to their soundboard knob experimentations. Anyway, I guess Bloodline was doing OK at the time as they did open for Lynyrd Skynyrd.
