April 9 – Going to see the band X with the original members at the Crystal Ballroom. Always great to see grinning Billy Zoom do his guitar thing – first saw them back in the early eighties! It’s the start of a tour, so catch ’em if you can.
April 28 – New album from Bob Dylan -“Together Through Life”. His career started right about when I was born, and he has been a figure in my life for the last 30 years or so! Right now you can get a free track at the link above.
