* CONCERT REVIEW *

Def Leppard/Poison/Cheap Trick

Short & sweet - Def Leppard was fantastic and the screens behind them constantly showed video. I've seen these guys at least five times now and they are master showmen. Poison - they were fine, but I guess I'm the only one on the planet who never liked Posion. And this was my first time for Cheap Trick, a band I've always loved but never seen live. Wish they'd gone second and had a light show - and got to play more songs! - but I really enjoyed them.

Which leads us to....

  5. All of your writing and book promoting and you still have time to attend concerts and go to the movies. Oh, to be young again.

  10. Tony and Helen, I'm happy to supply the links!

    And considering how far away we were from the stage, I'm stunned any of my photos came out.

    Cheap Trick was great, Kitty! Rick brought out all of his signature guitars, too.
