GO GET "GO"!
Watch for news on the movie SMILE starring Beau Bridges, Linda Hamilton, and Sean Astin. Music composed by NEIL!!!, with an original song from the PARADISE BROTHERS!
What's Been Cooked Up Lately?
Where has the summer gone!
It all started at the Let Freedom Rock Fest on July 4th!
Just down the road a piece from home (well, about an hour) I enjoyed
the company of some good friends, a beautiful summer day in the
park, along with a free concert sponsored by WMGK!
WMGK did their broadcast for the entire day at the park, so we got to
hear quite a few Pat and NEIL!!! tunes.
Local band, The Dipsomaniacs, took the stage first. They won a
contest on WMGK. Then Gary Hoey came on with his band. You
might remember Gary from his Christmas albums (Ho Ho Hoey) or the
Endless Summer II soundtrack.
Then came the feature attraction--Pat and NEIL!!! (woo hooo!)
With Mick Mahan on bass and Dave Karasony back on the drums, they
really rocked the park! They did those vintage hits along with
new songs from GO! During the acoustic set, we got to hear a
different version of "SORRY" and it was unbelievable. NEIL!!!
went all out on that gui-tar of his, giving that forearm quite a
workout! I loved it!
They also kept in one of my favorites, True Love! When they hit the
last note of "ALL FIRED UP" and left the stage, we were treated
to some beautiful fireworks over Cooper River Park!
Thank you WMGK and everyone involved in making my 4th!
Photos available here and also on the WMGK site!
From there on was a whole slew of shows!
BB King's was incredible. The audience response really charged up
NEIL!!! and Pat. They responded by adding an impromptu "We Belong."
If you only got to see one show this summer, that one was IT!
However, I got was lucky enough to see a few more. I'll be adding in
stuff about those later, but right now I've got a few chores to do.
For all those other shows, there are tour photos and reviews available at BenatarFanClub.com!
