Bad NNWM Day! Bad! Good concert last night though. The line up was impressive and read like a who’s who of a 1970s top 50. First Peter Frampton — yeah well, who hasn’t listened to Frampton Comes Alive and how angelic was that young boy (with the curly hair) but today’s Peter Frampton (sans hair) blew me away as he cajoled, demanded and played that guitar like nothing I’ve seen before. What a legend.
Then there was America (I caught up with them in my teens with their America’s Greatest Hits), and they were great. They looked like they were having fun, but not nearly as much as the audience, most of who sang along.
Finally Chicago blasted our socks off with their big brassy sound and I had to check that I wasn’t having palpitations (it was just
the insistent beat of the major drum solo). Not going to mention the average age of the audience but everyone seemed to have a ball. Happy birthday to you Ken! Thanks for a great night Kate!
And now for some serious catch up NNWM writing…leave a comment
