Last night, while channel flipping ~ Greg found a documentary on the band "The Eagles" ~ and it was really interesting. The guys in the band talked about their struggles, both with each other and with drugs/alcohol. It covered why different folks left the band and about the folks that joined the band. It was really neat to see the guys then ~ and the guys now. And they talked quite candidly about all the events surrounding their fame.
Which made me start thinking about all the concerts I attended as a teenager at the Omni in downtown Atlanta ~ Styx (many times ~ still like them), Chicago, Beach Boys, the Carpenters, Neil Diamond, The Osmond Brothers, and many more. Good times & great memories. A highlight of the year was the annual Toys for Tots concerts ~ Styx was in the ones I saw in 1976-1978 or 79. They featured about 6 bands every year and most went on to become big hits. And the tickets were cheap plus each person brought a toy to donate for needy children.
What a blast from the past!
