... oops. Wrong group.
Went into Toronto last night to see Alice Cooper and Deep Purple. What a show. We fed Alice's Frankenstein and he lost his
head as usual BUT Deep Purple ruled the night. Hell there were people actually dancing in the aisles(outdoor venue). Those sitting were bopping and
swaying. I thought it was a rip at first. Seems like they only played about 45 minutes. Zack(my 27 yo son) said, "Dad it was over an hour and a
half". That's how into the show we got.
It was an older crowd. We were typical. Old farts with their 20-30 something kids. I've never seen so many walkers, wheelchairs, canes, scooters, etc
at a rock show before. Starting with my wheelchair.
We rocked it though. And if you don't think that septuagenarians can't rock you should have
been there. High energy.
I'm getting back to my old precocious self after that long illness. I was at the merch stand and a woman next to me said, "Oh, did I bump you?" I
said, "No... but you could." She just looked at me and I continued, "I'm not paralyzed." She just stared but her mother(about my age) behind her
split a gut laughing.
All in all a helluva good time. Not the best concert I've seen, that would be Queen in '78 but up there.
