Saturday night I saw a couple of tribute bands bring down the house at the Ogden Theater, first the U2 tribute Under a Blood Red Sky and then the Neil Diamond tribute Super Diamond. I have to say...there is no shame in being in a tribute band, especially if you bring the thunder.
Pick the right band and your audience will be full of beautiful women. I've been to rock shows full of hairy dudes and their unlucky girlfriends. This was way cooler.
I wasn't as familiar with Neil Diamond's work as I thought I was. My brother said this was my song:
I can see his point, but this one speaks to me more:
I dunno know what it is, but my chair just will not listen.
Funny part of the night, which I wish I would have got on video, was when my brother went down to the front of the stage and had a little moment with Fake Bono. He just went down to take some pictures and a minute later Fake Bono's singing to him and throwing him high fives...
It was funny.
