Free Casino Rock 'n' Roll
Caught my first casino rock 'n' roll show last week. About time I guess - I am older than Canuck fans' dreams of motherfucking Stanley Cup glory.
It was Paul Rodgers. I finally got to hear a Free song performed live. Sang a couple off his splendid "Royal Sessions" soul album, a Firm song and all the Bad Company songs his fans have better memorized than their national anthem as well.
Drummer was a little younger than Bad Company's so the show was a lot longer than the Bad Company show I saw last summer. Still was not dark by the time the near sell out filed out of the building. And I thought I would have to take the next day off work. Turned out I was right about that after all. The pub was still open for hours after the rock show was over.
Expect to see me more often at the rocking casinos.
