There is always time for music, and when your favorite musicians are being offered up live, it is necessary that you attend, no matter what the expense is. I finally had the privilege of seeing one of my favorite early nineties bands for the first time recently. A few nights before, Eddie Vedder was booed by a Colorado audience for stepping on a Bush mask on stage, and I just knew that Houston would ban them, but Pearl Jam arrived, and instead of Bush, Eddie decided to abuse Bill Gates’ mask instead. They put on an amazing show, and even played my favorite song, Rear-View Mirror. The show ended with the Neil Young song, “Rockin’ in the Free World” – classic! Nothing could have made me happier, except for a surprise appearance from Mr. Young himself, which didn’t happen. I even bought myself a concert t-shirt, which is something that I haven’t done in ten years.
