More Than We Expected

Yesterday did not go as expected. It went BETTER than expected!! We began our day pretty tired from the night before. We had learned our grounds, where we could and couldn't go. These media passes don't get us backstage for the bigger guys like Bruce Springsteen (bummer) but, they do get us into the the press conferences and we've found that's where the true fun is! So after we had planned out our day and decided to check out some comedy we began to hear some singing in the distance that sounded a lot like Jimmy Buffet. We thought we'd check it out since even if it wasn't Jimmy, the guy sure came close. It was a complete secret that Jimmy Buffet was going to be here!! And my husband happens to be his biggest fan! After a great concert we made our way back to the press conference area where we were able to meet him. Unfortunately, his two HUGE bodyguards wanted him out of there quickly so we did manage to get a picture with him but not his autograph. After Jimmy we headed onto Bon Iver. We were able to get backstage, and sneaky little me, I dragged us past our normal viewing area to the designated photographer section so we could get a closer look. That lasted about 1/2 hour before his bodyguards caught us! Ha! Living life on the edge, right?! But it was all perfect timing because the concert was coming to an end so we decided to get in line for Jimmy Fallon. Basically, all in all, everything just feel into place yesterday. We ended up with excellent seats for Jimmy Fallon and didn't stop laughing for about 2 hours straight! My face literally hurt from laughing so hard. I have managed to gather a lot of video, however, the internet access here in the middle of nowhere isn't the best. I'm not going to risk loading it while I'm here, but plan to post a great video recap of our adventures when we return. This also explains why the blogs have been few and far between. I really WANT to...but the internet gods aren't letting me! So I apologize for that. Today we are getting ready for another big day starting with Citizen Cope, followed by Erykah Badu and then Snoop Dogg. I'm an crossing my fingers that Citizen Cope and Snoop Dogg do a press conference tonight. I guess only time will tell. Either way, I'm grateful for the memories I've made thus far. We been having an incredible time that I will never forget. --posted by Trish DeFever

We still miss you Stevie Ray Vaughan
It's hard to believe it's been 24 years since we lost Stevie Ray Vaughan in that helicopter crash after a show at Alpine Valley. I've talked to lots of people who were at that concert, which also featured Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, and...

World's Worst iPod: Donny Osmond "Soldier of Love"
It's hard to believe that Donny Osmond scored his second biggest solo hit in 1989, but it's true! "Soldier of Love" went all the way to #2 on the charts. When the song was released, the record company was afraid no one would buy a new Donny...

World's Worst iPod: Exile "Kiss You All Over"
Kitty thought this song was an example of country disco and was not a fan...but just about everybody else was. "Kiss You All Over" was #1 for four weeks in 1978, and was probably one of the year's best songs. Exile rocks out with the song here...

The next Jonny Lang? Quinn Sullivan is the real deal
I was up in Wausau for the Big Bull Falls Blues Fest, and had a great time watching all the great live music. The big surprise of the day was the guy who played at 3pm. He's just 15 years old and is a good friend of Buddy Guy, and even got to play...

World's Worst iPod: Young MC "Bust a Move"
Kitty apppeared to be all alone on her dislike of this song, which made it to #7 on the charts in 1989. Rolling Stone described the song this way: "a G-rated funk-bomb integral to hip-hop's eventual mainstream acceptance." The G-rating probably...
