i know it’s only rock ‘n’ roll…

Posted on Updated on

last night the brown eyed girl and i went out to see our friend, john harrelson perform live at ‘the press’ in claremont.  john is and always will be one of my favorite live performers.  he pulls out all the stops when he gets fired up.  and the packed house had him fired up as you will see from some of the photos.  some folks were so fired up they wanted john so set fire to his guitar ala jimi hendrix.  i for one would love to see that action myself but i doubt john would would use one of his precious babies as fire wood.

if you have never seen john play a live gig you need to do so.  there’s only so much that can come out of a cd.  cds, which are great but live he is something else.  a true performer and entertainer from the old days of traveling black blues artists.  john harrelson delivers what few other folks do, a fine show and even better music. 

thanks, for the music john.  it was stellar as usual.  i’m sorry we had to miss the second set  and the ‘blue highway’ re-union but the brown eyed girl was feeling poorly.  i hope the photos that follow help present what it was like to be there.  please, don’t stop performing live.  we need it.  you do too.

    I would love to hear him sing but I try to go to the website but it says “it’s disabled”.
