The joyful day!

Scariness

I just sat down and made up set lists for the shows this weekend.

I finished the first one (probably a little too long) and realized ... I have enough songs left over for another entire hour show. And this isn't digging too much into the backlog of songs, the things I wrote a long time ago that I really would rather not do (and that have mostly never been heard at a con anyway).

So I am doing two completely different sets this weekend, including some songs that I don't do much. Could be interesting.
The joyful day!

Leave some legends alone

I'm sitting here practically in tears.

He let go with about 5 lines. He sounded just the same as he did 30 years ago when he actually made up his mind to sing. He looked like he had no idea how to play that keyboard in front of him.

Then he just wandered off the stage.

On one hand it made me so glad to see him get the respect that he has deserved for so long. On the other hand, sometimes you just have to let a legend rest.

It's a shame that you couldn't beat your demons, I hope you at least have them at bay now. The fact that you got up in front of an audience for the first time in a couple decades is one sign that you that you are doing better.

Good to see you Sly. Even if it made me sad.
