Eclectic Taste (Or Why I am Child of the ’80’s)



If you were to swipe my iPod, yes I still have one, or peruse my phone music, or my Spotify Playlist the results would be the same. I have eclectic taste in music, or as some as my friends would say, what are you listening to?
     Putting any of my playlists on shuffle is an experience not to be missed, you just never know what what will come out. It could be anything from Def Leppard to Peter, Paul & Mary.
     Along with this eclectic taste in music comes a veritable cornucopia of concerts that I have attended over the years. Some people enjoy spending time in darkened movie theaters, waiting for the house lights to come up.  Some of the best times I can remember have been spent in Civic Centers and Concert Halls in the Northeast.
     Reo Speedwagon, Survivor, Billy Joel-no less than 8 times, Elton John-at least 6 times, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills,Nash & Young, Stevie Nicks, Bruce Springsteen & Rod Stewart.
     Then began my foray into country music, Garth Brooks, John Michael Montgomery, Brooks & Dunn, & Shania Twain.
     But by far the best concert I have been to was the most recent one. My brother, and sister-in-law and I took my Dad to see a band he has loved since I was a youngster. A band that he wore the album out, and I didn’t think that was possible. We went to see Fleetwood Mac at the XL Center in CT. It was an experience I will never forget, and not just the music. The Chain, and Rhiannon not withstanding, the company and the experience was amazing and something that I will always remember. My Dad truly loved the concert, he had never been to one before. He will always remember it, and Scott, Lyndsay and I will always remember it too, we made it a memorable experience for him, or we hope we did. 🎶🎶🎼🎤🎤🎻🎹🎹
