Here’s the next segment of my new series of concert reviews and details of what I remember about various shows, performances, and events over the years that I’ve attended.  Some of these reviews will be short, while others will be much longer and more detailed.  It all depends on what I remember and what research is available on those old concert dates.  I hope you enjoy reliving these musical experiences with me.

Ask Me Anything (Video)

Today, I did a one-hour vlog with readers asking lots of interesting questions.

Every topic was open for discussion but I ran out of time and couldn’t get to them all.

A few topics:

— best music concerts

— Anthony Bourdain suicide

— new “Top Gun” movie

— sports betting

— good cheap wines

— the perfect day

— what would I do if I was NFL Commissioner?

— 2022 midterm election predictions

— what’s wrong with baseball

— will Joe Biden run again in 2024?

….and more.

Note there are some tech glitches.  Skip the first two minutes of setup.  Things get rolling after a few minutes.
