Today’s Brew: The Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher from Starbucks. Since I’m still squatting at Starbucks for internet, I decided I should mix it up a bit. If you haven’t tried this yet, do it. It’s so delicious. Done with the advertisement. Starbucks, you know where to send my check.
I’ve been going to see live bands longer than I care to admit. That little hobby of mine was a huge influence in my story line for IMMORTAL DILEMMA. I went to my first club when I was 12 years old with my downstairs neighbors to see a band called Mass. They had some notoriety in 19…yeah, forget about the year with their song “Do You Love Me.” Julie and I also had the pleasure of seeing Skid Row on their very first tour with Bon Jovi. Their album wasn’t even out yet. We were super skeptical about some unknown opening band, even if guitarist Snake had grown up with Jon Bon himself. On the last Bon Jovi tour, we’d been subjected to Keel and we still haven’t forgotten it. Skid Row was no Keel, and by the end of their set, they had new fans in us. We were on our seats cheering.
And both are still rocking it. Last Sunday night, I went to see Skid Row and Mass in a place called Wally’s in Hampton Beach, NH. It’s not quite as fancy as the Sin City Vampire Club, but it didn’t stop us from having a great time. Here are some shots from the show, courtesy of Janee Carroll of Orbit the Well Photography. And if it’s been a while since you checked out Skid Row, well, what are you waiting for? Do it now!
