This was the only time I ever saw R.E.M. in concert, on the Monster Tour. Glad I went. While never my favorite band, I always enjoyed and respected them. A long history of writing amazing songs. They will be missed.
Childhood dreams came true in June. Paul Simon, club show, nuff said. Oh yeah, David Byrne joined the fun for a couple songs - Talking Heads' "Road To Nowhere" and the classic Simon track "You Can Call Me Al" (with a David Byrne stage fall included). Full photos on Brooklynvegan.com here.
The Cars reunited and toured earlier this Spring (yes, its photo set catch up time here on FB) and I was lucky enough to shoot the show for Brooklynvegan. Though I was young during the band's most successful period, I always loved the Cars and was glad I could see them live. The hits sounded awesome, the new songs okay.
