To holmertz: jealous guy

  • The advantage of being old(er) is that you can make the young(er) jealous of the concerts you've seen.
    Or, in this case: of concerts you haven't even seen!.

    Same is true for me. Some of my students are dead jealous when I tell them I've seen Nirvana, Jeff Buckley, Amy Winehouse, Stevie Ray Vaughan, whatever....but these just don't hold up against the ones I haven't seen. The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix or the Allman Brothers Band, for example. Now don't remind me again of that Hendrix concert in Stockholm...

  • I'm sure I told you about The Cream's first London West End concert? Or their brief follow-up Blind Faith in Göteborg?
  • Grrr....grrr....
  • The Velvet Underground...?
    ...
    Ha...!

    I saw the reunion concert in 1993 in Holland.
  • Leonard Cohen has been to my house, visiting friends living on the floor below mine. Unfortunately before I moved in, but still...
  • OK...I give up...

    Or...should I mention that I once sat at the bar with Bo Diddley?

  • Yes, please mention that! That beats anything I have experienced. I arrived a few days late to a pub in Ireland where John Lennon had been while taking a break from work in 1968.
  • ...which brings our little magic mystery tour nicely back to the picture we started with.
