It Was 50 Years Ago Today: The Beatles Play Comiskey Park

This is a ticket for the 8 pm show. $4.50 is the middle priced ticket.
Comiskey Park was home to the Chicago White Sox from 1910 through 1990. 1965 was a pretty good year for the Sox. They finished second in the American League to the Minnesota Twins. But the highlight at Comiskey for that year was two shows by The Beatles. That happened fifty years ago today….August 20, 1965.... Read more »

I'm Not Losing A Daughter...Well, Yeah I Really Am

I'm Not Losing A Daughter...Well, Yeah I Really Am
It really happened. My daughter is now married. It was a beautiful day and weekend. It was also very emotionally draining. I hear that’s the way it’s suppose to be and I’m not a real wuss. Okay…maybe both. We’ve known this day has been coming for about a year and still it’s more than a... Read more »

Lollapalooza 2015: Day One Choices

St. Paul and the Broken Bones.
My favorite newer band. The soul of an Otis Redding with the horns sound of Memphis. These guys from Alabama already played a pre Lolla show last night and I look for them to be one of the biggest names in music within the next few years.
Lollapalooza 2015 hits Chicago’s Grant Park this weekend. Lots of music. Lots of sun. Lots of people with about 300, 000 expected! As Max Yasgur said at Woodstock “It’s three days of fun and music and nothing but fun and music.” There are fifty performers playing on opening day so here are recommendation with my... Read more »

What do the Stones, The Supreme Court, Robin Williams and The Dead have in common?

The Rolling Stone have been touring again. The reviews have been great. No sign of stopping. This won't be their finale.
The dude in the picture is Keith Richards. He's 71 years old. After a life of debauchery, he looks better than ever. He wants to keep touring and make a new studio record. How did this happen? How is he looking better than almost everyone in my age range? We all thought he'd be dead by now! Hmm...better living through heroin and alcohol or maybe it helps to be married to a super-model?
The answer to the title question really is nothing. It’s just that my blog has been on a little rest and relaxation vacation and I’m combining them and a couple other things into one posting. Kind of a tease, right…but we’ll see how it turns out. Here’s what has been going on the last couple... Read more »

    Last June I hit the magic age of 60. Almost immediately I found myself not feeling as well as usual. Go figure, I mean, I am 60 years old, whether I want to admit it or not!! But then strange symptoms started to occur. A friend, who is a doctor, told me to get checked out....Voila...Parkinsons. That's what this is all about. Living every day with this. Personal info... I'm 60 divorced with 2 daughters in their early 20's live in the city...lakeview area...grew up in the north burbs. Lived in So. California for 13 years...may go back...I hear winters are warm there!! :-)
