Hello Who, Good-bye Wiggles

Sorry Greg, Murray, Anthony and Jeff but Katie is through with you. She has lost her heart to The Who.

Yesterday Katie and I went to the Virgin Festival in Baltimore, Md. Any hesitations I had of her not being okay about it were quickly lost. She danced and danced and danced. Then came The Who.

From the first note she was enthralled. She was given a pair of Zak Starkey's drum sticks and it was all over. She is now ready to follow them around the globe. Good thing all I need to work is an internet connection and a phone!!!

When she was not "drumming," Katie spent the better part of the day dancing around to The Who or watching their videos at All of course with the sticks in hand. She simply can not get enough!

The Who at PNC

Creative heads I come up with lately huh? Sheesh

I am beyond busy writing and reporting the news as well as editing other stuff but I wanted to say Laura BZ and I are going to see The Who at PNC on Thursday, Sept. 21.

We are hoping to tailgate with Dave of Pa. If any other bloggers want to join us just drop me an email.

Joe's Pub and House of Blues

I have been meaning to update but what a whirlwind of a weekend!!

I went with Laura BZ to see Rachel Fuller at Joe's Pub on Thursday, Sept. 14. I am going to cop out on giving my own report on the gig itself as Jason gives a great one! Check out it at

I had meet and greet tickets so I got to met Rachel again -- which was a thrill. She seemed to like the idea I am a Rachel Fuller Fan and not a Who Fan. She laughed when I told her I had no idea Pete Townshend could play the guitar THAT good until I saw him on In The Attic. She of course thought it was "fucking weird" I found her through The Grateful Dead. Since I myself am not a Dead Head I pretty much agree with that! LOL (Laura BZ is the GD connection.)

Ironically despite being near Pete Townshend for a second time, I still didn't meet him! Mostly because I did not want to invade his space as at both events he seems to have a large number of fans. Laura did meet Pete and gave him a mug her brother made. She also met Rachel and Foy.

It was nice to see Justin Kreutzmann at the meet and greet without his camera. He certainly deserves the break.

I had so much fun I can not even begin to tell you. I met a bunch of bloggers. In addition to Jason there was Kim C, Kayy, JillKristen and her dh, G.C Scooter and Lisa, Lisa Lisa and her dh, Sully, as well as those we hung out with afterwards -- Dave of Pa, Cathy with a C, Ronzi and Lou. The "after party" was so much fun. Laura and I got to hang with some truly great people.

Now for the news --

I AM GOING TO CHICAGO to see Rachel!!! Yes I am screaming! I am so excited! I am going with Laura BZ's dh who will be in Chicago on business. I was toying with the idea the moment Joe's was over. Laura kept telling me "Hey I saw Jerry (Garcia) over 200 times, you should go." Then I saw Rachel posted Mikey will be there and the deal was sealed. I can not wait until Sept. 28.

Rachel Fuller at B&N

Last night, Sept. 11, I got the pleasure of seeing Rachel Fuller at Barnes & Noble in NYC. What a perfect ending to such a sad day.

I was surprised to find Rachel's voice is even more beautiful in person. Pete Townshend played on Just Breathe and Rachel dedicated the song to NYers in honor of Sept. 11. After singing five songs, she signed our CDs and talked to each of us for a bit. She is a doll. Check her out at
  • Attic Intravision

  • I also got to meet Justin Kreutzmann. His eye is so incredibly brilliant. I just heart his work and probably am over the legal limit of watching most of his videos. Luckily a ton of new stuff has been added to You seriously need to check it out if you have not already. His blog is
  • Rock and Reel

  • A bunch of us went out for burgers and beers afterwards and that was fun. Made new friends.

    I can not wait until Joe's Pub on Thursday!!

    I am back

    Back from the rainiest time I have ever spent at the Jersey shore!

    It was okay though. I probably spent too much time in Atlantic City -- shopping, not gambling! Although I usually don't like to shop I will admit I had a blast.
