Well here I go again. I know my visual hubs are much better to look at than listening to my ramblings but for this one I have a few stories to go along with what you're viewing. First one of my favorite musicians ever Adrian Belew. Adrian grew up in the Cincinnati-Northern Kentucky area. Steve (what he was called before he changed his name) started out, believe it or not,  playing drums in the marching band in school. His first band was called The Denems and he was the drummer. They did mostly Beatles tunes and did them quite well. After a couple of other local bands (and learning to play guitar) he moved on to play with folks like Frank Zappa, Talking Heads. David Bowie (with great local drummer Mike Hodges), King Crimson, The Bears (poster) and many other high quality musicians. So this is a little thing I put together with Adrian's travels. Next is a photo of Keith Emerson that I took at a show in 1977. This was a great show and one of only a handfull that ELP did with a full individually miced orchestra. As you can see I played around with this one. Next the great Janis Joplin. I had the pleasure of getting to see Janis in 1968 at a local venue called Music Hall (which seats only a few thousand) I have a great story about that show, if you have an interest ask, I'd be happy to tell you. The Rolling Stones, I've seen them I think 4 times. The opening act for the one in Indiana was The Jazz Crusaders. The Stones have always been good about having quality opening acts, even if the crowd didn't always agree. Lonnie Mack is kind of a local guy so I've seen him several times. He's a wizard with the flying-v. Enough talk, hope you enjoy my trip! Peace!!

      Thank Freta, I sometimes can't believe all the music I've seen through the years. Justin is always on me to do a book and I've actually started an attempt but I'm not a writer so I don't know! Thanks again. Peace!! Tom

      Tom, you're a wealth of knowledge as far as the entertainment world is concerned. I enjoy that you've seen so many of these people first hand, which gives you a much broader prospective of them and their various styles. Thanks for the education. I'll be back.

      Hey, I remember Janis' show at Music Hall. I was 17 at the time. Do you remember her bringing a TV on stage to watch the Beatles on Smothers Brothers, or was I inhaling something??

      Nice article, brings back memories for me; I remember Millie Jackson at the height of her popularity; in recent years, she was radio announcing in the Dallas Ft. Worth area, a few years back when I was living there. I like the Issac Hayes ticket stub, nice touch; i never made it to one of his concerts, but I wish I had; I would love to have an Issac Hayes ticket in my collection. I enjoyed your hub; I am looking forward to others from you and your son.

      Great music. It's still surprizing to see such diverse names as Bill Monroe and the Temptations that you saw live. Write more about your musical experience.
