Since my back is feeling better, I decided to try it out at a Rock Concert. I guess the word "Rock" is relative, but for me it was pretty....Rockin'. I went to a Lenny Kravitz concert with Emerson Hart and Finger Eleven. I was looking forward to Lenny of course, but came away an Emerson Hart fan. I have included one of his tracks on the playlist. He is best know for being the lead singer of Tonic..which I also included on the playlist. He was awesome, I really enjoyed him. He wasn't a stand up and dance kind of act, but a listen and enjoy kind of act.
The next up was Finger Eleven. Again no expectations, which was good because these were the guys who were clearly living the Rock style life. They have a couple of good songs, but most of the songs they played consisted of the lead singer mostly screaming and the lead guitar guy kept on dropping his guitar. I couldn't tell if this was intentional or not. Even though they were not quite my style, the last couple of songs were familiar and they got me out of my seat to act like a true fan..
The last was Lenny Kravitz. Expectations were moderately high and he delivered. Pretty much, he could just walk around for an hour and I would be satisfied. He was awesome and I stood the whole hour dancing like a teenager. Although at one point of the concert he did ask for everyone to jump up and down. I did, then I realized there was a reason that I didn't do that very often. Oh yeah, I have had kids and you know, I pretty much had to stop jumping or we would be in trouble.
I am so glad I went, I felt AWAKE again. Although my ears were buzzing when I went to bed that night and I couldn't talk the next day..It was worth it!
