As I noted earlier, my musical taste is pretty diverse. My mother studied music (voice/piano) as a young lady and was in to classical, opera (having once heard Caruso live) as well as "big band", swing and musicals. This was the music I heard at home as a youngster. Then, the 45 of "Blue Suede Shoes" my brother brought home added 'Rock N Roll' to the list. My first purchase was a 45 of Frankie Lymon's "Goody Goody". During the mid to late 60's I saw live acts such as "Little Stevie Wonder", Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, The Four Tops, Herman's Hermits, Sonny & Cher, Gary Puckett and The Union Gap and Paul Revere and The Raiders, The OJ's.
Fifty Years ago tomorrow I was headed east on the New York Throughway with a buddy to a certain farm, listening to tunes when "An important announcement" came on; "The N.Y. Thruway has been shut down! Turn around now and go back.". We pulled over and checked every station we could pick up and pretty much confirmed that it was highly unlikely if not impossible we would reach our destination in time.
A few years later, I went to what is possibly the 'golden star' in my list of concerts, The Doors. It was just one year before Jim Morrison's untimely death.
I've continued to attend concerts and my appreciation for new and different music continues to grow. One of my current favorites, Pink, is from just a few miles away.
