Ever since I was little, music was my greatest form of expression. I don’t mean singing or playing an instrument, I’m too tone-deaf for that. I mean I often express myself through what I listen to. I don’t just listen to music, I become part of it. It’s not just another form of entertainment to me.
Quick, name the first thing that pops into your head when I say The Grateful Dead. Let me guess, dirty hippies, stoners playing hacky sack, and old burnouts reliving the glory days of rock? Sure, when a band is that steeped in drug culture, all of that’s bound to come to mind. Do you know what you didn’t think of? The freaking music!
This show was on Friday July 30th, 2010 at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach and it was phenomenal. Unfortunately I hit a ton of traffic on the way to the theater and missed most of Switchfoot.
So I’m going to see the Goo Goo Dolls on July 30th and plan to do a full review of the show this weekend. Until then I have a live video of when I saw the amazing AC/DC at Madison Square Garden back on November 18th, 2008. It was an amazing show. Angus had a eleven minute solo at one point . It ‘s one of the best live shows I’ve seen to date. Here is Hells Bells for your enjoyment.
