For Your Entertainment

 Lynyrd Skynyrd - T For Texas
If Lynyrd Skynyrd ever could be said to have peaked, it was right here, with this performance, and this song. This is one of their songs that seldom got airplay. In my opinion the "day the music died" was October 20, 1977. Sorry Buddy Holly and sorry to the reformed Lynyrd Skynyrd. You're great but....

You have to listen to the next one. For a long time I thought this was the Jerky Boys. I'm not sure who it is now.

I saw them in concert a few years ago. Still good, but definitely getting a little long in the tooth.

Last month I saw Van Halen in concert, and damn, they can still rock. Eddie Van Halen is a true master of his craft. I'm still perplexed at the genius who had Kool and the Gang open for them, though.

Kool And The Gang opening for Van Halen? Hmm...

I got to see lots of good live music in my day but never seeing Skynyrd is one thing I regret. We can't afford the damn tickets for live shows anymore. I was gonna go to the Stagecoach Festival a few years back to see Poco but just couldn't afford it.

Van Halen may still rock, but I won't pay a dime to go see them live. Those Van Halen brothers a true assholes! Eddie was my idol when I was learning the guitar as a kid, but he's an asshole. And yes, he's a talented asshole.

If their shafting of Michael Anthony wasn't bad enough to hate them for eternity, the shit they pulled off with their tour this year didn't surprise me one bit. I can't find the article on it now, but they are doing the same thing Neil Diamond did, and it landed them on my every-growing long list of assholes I boycot...

Floor seats for the show here were "sold out" before they even went on sale. I just checked and now the cheapest floor seats for June's show are almost $300.00. Fuck that, fuck Van Halen, and fuck TicketMaster! And since I'm already throwing out the f-bombs, FUCK OBAMA TOO!

Oh, I almost forgot; the promoter that booked Kook and The Gang to open for VH should not only be shamed and fired, but should be completely black-listed from the business forever. If that's too harsh, I would settle for watching a Pro Soccer player kick him square in his nuts! AFTER he was shamed and then fired. That would make me happy.

Although, maybe he's a disgruntled VH fan like me. Who knows?

Maybe it was David Lee Roth's idea. If you've heard him talk about ANYTHING lately, you'll see that he's has finally lost his last marble...

CharlieDelta - it's funny you should mention how VH screwed over Michael Anthony. He was on That Metal Show last season and he was talking about his new band Chickenfoot and how Eddie Van Halen fucked him over by getting his kid Wolfgang in VH for bass. Nothing like nepotism.

I always thought David Lee Roth wasn't playing with a full deck anyway. To be honest and not totally with the crowd I always liked Sammy Hagar instead of Roth. Just my opinion.

$300.00 for tickets? Holy shit! I think my first concert was The Who and Little Feat back in 1976 in Anaheim Stadium and I don't think I paid more than twenty dollars for tickets. It was a long time ago but I know it wasn't very much.
