Another of my favorite concerts was seeing Lifehouse at Four Street in Louisville. It was outdoors at night, which made an intimate experience. Jason Wade did several acoustic songs and the band just jammed out for awhile. I hope to see them again this year! And hopefully DSO too!

My favorite concert was August 8th, 1974 at then Pine Knob, we were there to see Joni Mitchell. She stopped the concert midway and announced Richard Nixon had resigned and went to say something to her band. She then stated playing/singing the national anthem, as we all did with lighters lit. I truly believed the country started to heal right, then and now.

Had to be the early 70s when opening night was Detroit's academy awards. We all waited outside for one person. Hank the Dues's wife to show up in her dress she would almost be wearing. Great times. Limos everywhere. No Hank though. Meadow Brook was good until basket search.
