The Bangles at the World Cafe Live: Walking Egyptians and So Much More..!!

In just over 6 weeks, I will be 46 years old! I can remember being head over heels for the Bangles, nearly 30 years ago! I had all their albums on cassette initially, and then, with the advent of compact discs, on CD. I can even recall videotaping, in 1986, their concert on MTV from the Syria Mosque in Pittsburgh, PA (it was related to a contest that MTV had held, back when a) they actually played music videos and b) when MTV actually played music videos that were about "sippin' 40's..", "smokin' weed..", or "twerking") and watching it QUITE often, even as recently as about 5 years, just before I met my wife Tam-Tam, as well as before the VCR went buh-byes! Yeah, I was a big fan! But, despite that fan appreciation, I never did get to see them live ... that is, until last night!

Britishmania: Fab Four Tribute Band OWNED It Last Night!

I LOVE the Beatles! If you are a regular reading of TBS, or if you know me socially offline, then you are more than aware of my admiration and adoration of the Fab Four and their music! Let it be known, that while I am into their music and I am familiar with the artist's lives during that time, I do not idolize them, nor do I give them any of the respect and attention that I reserve for God. Would I have been a screaming crazy fan in the 1964 when they came to America? Heck, yes, but I still would give all of my Love and worship to Him! Ok, so where was I? Oh yes, now I remember..
