The intent of this post is to prove that my true calling in life is to be a concert photographer.
I had the chance to see Credence Clearwater Revisited over the weekend. It’s actually the second time I’ve seen the band, and both times I am reminded of the sheer number of classic hits that CCR recorded. And, the fact that people from age 6 to age 96 know these songs. It’s amazing.
Did I mention the concert was free? On a bug-free, warm and breezy night on the Mississippi? It was really a gorgeous evening. (Ryan’s totally jealous that he was out of town. He wanted to go.)
Can you name 5 CCR songs? Here are a few, for all you trivia folks:
- Proud Mary
- Midnight special
- Looking out my back door
- Down on the corner
- Hey tonight
- Who’ll stop the rain
- I heard it through the grapevine
- Suzie Q
And, as an aside, we also saw the great Ozzie Smith at a speaker’s series on Sunday. It was kinda neat to see the Baseball Hall-of-Famer in person. I still remember seeing him flip on the field at Busch Stadium as a kid. Seems like a really good guy, just like I remember.
A few famous encounters of my weekend.
Tell me about the best concert you’ve heard/seen.
