Susan’s Music Talk: Good Day to Be Alive, Sir.


This week’s Sunday Scribblings prompt was “celebrate”.

This one is so obvious that I, The Tour Manager, am stepping in. Susan being wiped out from
the celebration in question has something to do with it too . . .

Life’s full of things to celebrate. Heck, it’s good to make up excuses and rationalizations to hold a celebration. They’re uplifting, affirmating, and a whole list of other positive things.

But, once in a while, there are celebrations that are unique and extra meaningful to you for one reason or another. This weekend was one for us, especially the rock-and-roll author slash former metal DJ. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I can’t put the pictures here because of copyright reasons, but here’s about 6,000 words worth of a truly special celebration.

‘tallica’s RRHOF Induction

And believe me, the other people whose work and careers were also celebrated leading up to the guys in those pictures were every bit as special and spectacular.

    I had a blast watching it on TV, I can just imagine how bad ass it was to actually be there. And to top it off… Jason and Rob on bass during ‘tallica set was simply bad ass and a definite highlight of the night. Later.
