Aplscruf's Music Blog


Waiting For Their Turn

My main goal is to get hundreds of pages of concert journals online and share with anyone who might be interested in reading about the joys of  live music.  Maybe it will motivate the reader to go out and see a live show and experience a similar positive reaction.

I’m a huge music fan.  A self-proclaimed groupie.  I know a little about a lot of things on music and musicians, and I’m not a scholar of music or expert on any musical subject or musician, which might be frustrating to some of you musicophiles.

I wrote most of my journals within a couple of days of seeing a show, without many revisions.  Therefore, many of them will seem unpolished or incomplete.  I don’t always have all the details I’d like or the time to research, so bear with me.  I’m not anal enough to write every song of every set list, or know the middle names of  musicians, etc.  I will try to fill in details as I go, without destroying the essence of the original journals.  I’ve been keeping journals for years, and have kept just about every concert ticket and article on the bands and musicians I’ve seen. All the pictures shown, unless otherwise noted/credited, were taken by me.

What I’m hoping to do here is to share the joy.  Music, especially live music, feeds my soul.

  2. I read your blog regarding your obstructed seat at Joe Cocker in row 10, stage left. What were your seat numbers?

    • I’ll check that out. I saved them. I’m pretty sure we were a few seats in from the aisle on left side. There was a big curtain on the left side of the stage where they had equipment. We couldn’t see Benmont at all, except for part of his piano. For $300, we should have at least been able to see the whole stage!

    • I couldn’t find tickets, but husband said we were in section C, probably seats 37-38 or something, closer to the left aisle than to the middle.

  3. I love your blog, I too am addicted to live music and love to write about it. We definitely have something in common as I am also interested in getting folks off the couch and into the clubs.

    • Thanks, Thom! I’ll check out your posts, too. Hoping to see The Swearengens at Blue Moon next, but we’ll see. It’s tough getting out during the week.

  6. Hi! I see that you’ve been seeing some music in Alabama, and I’m an Alabama-based songwriter. I have a weekly gig in Mobile, and I play in Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Talladega, Montgomery, etc. Would love to see you sometime! http://www.stuartmcnair.com
