    R.I.P. to my mom - 4 years ago she went to join all of her friends and relatives who went to heaven first.

    I know she is helping us from beyond to make sure we have a new president in January 2021. Thank you, mom, for everything you did for me and all of our family while you were here. R.I.P.

    Amen, and if your mom is a fan of Rush and Van Halen, hopefully Neil and Eddie are entertaining her. 😊

    Very, very sad.  I wonder how many girls looked up to her and then followed through on a dream they though could not come true.

    Hopefully as many girls as possible over the course of Justice Ginsburg’s long life and career. She inspired and will continue to inspire me.

    United States Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg died today at the age of 89.  This is a horrible loss for my country.  She was loved and will be missed.

    I don't know.  Perhaps this is our answer.

    Double rainbow honors John Lewis as he lies in state | Most DC ...

    It's Paul's birthday....and I remember his birthday every year...like all my beloved family members. Paul's birth has changed my world and the collective energy of the world. I think it is with divine intent and purpose that his birthday is the same day as Mother's Day and  first born daughter, Jordan.

    Paul's Mother, Iris, gave birth to this child of enlightenment. Despite her death and Paul mourning her physical/emotional presence most of his life....her death gave Paul a second birth. In Paul mourning Iris...her death breathed new life in whom we know as Bono.

    Bono's birth gave a new compassionate voice to the world. That voice, a beautiful gift to the world.....that brings comfort and joy to so many.

    What birthday gift would you give Bono?


    I’d like to give him a song, but I don’t know if I have any that are good enough.


    Bono taught me to sing. When I got my car and could enjoy any music I wanted (especially lots of U2) all alone, I slowly went from the girl who would rather die than sing to the girl who would sing shyly to the girl who would belt it out like her favorite Irish tenor and duet with him on dozens of his songs while driving to and from work.


    This took longer, but Bono also taught me to write songs. I was blown away by every track on Achtung Baby! and wished I could write a whole album or even just 1 song with lyrics as amazing as Bono’s.


     I have written multiple songs about or inspired by Bono, but none of them seem worthy to perform for him. I’m glad I wrote them, even the weak ones, because each was a learning experience, but would any of them be worthy gifts on the level of the gifts that Bono has given me?


    Thank you for teaching me to sing and write songs, Bono, and happy birthday!

    R.I.P., John Prine.

    A legendary American performer and songwriter. Younger generations may not be familiar with his work, but he is very worthy of discovering. He beat two different forms of cancer 15 years apart; unfortunately, those two battles took their toll enough to make his final battle with coronavirus too difficult to overcome.

    R.I.P. again, John...


    I regret that I wasn’t familiar with his music until this tragic moment, but I am enjoying clever lyrics and folksy midwestern voice. RIP, Mr. Prine.

    Live on tour...via the Internet from Bono’s living room. Full band performance with the players always a minimum of 2 meters apart...in full Personal Protective Equipment (a la, Adam during PopMart). (Larry is going to love playing the drums that way.)

    It will be awesome, or at least interesting..,


    But can they fit a giant lemon into Bono’s living room for the full Pop Mart experience? 😀

  8. Happy Birthday, Adam!

    I haven’t yet gotten the chance to meet you, so this is the best picture I have from my first U2 concert in June 2018 in DC.


     I put Pink Adam on the back of my guitar in your honor, and thanks for your strong, throbbing bass lines, especially in “New Year’s Day.”

  9. I think I’m still seeing Primus in June.


     At least The Wedding Band concert didn’t get cancelled last week, or I would have missed the great and historic Wah-Off contest between Kirk “The Ripper” Hammett and Mrs. Smith the Crazy Manhattan Cat Lady. 😀😙🤘


    (I still can’t believe Kirk lost 😮😉)

    My next concert is Inhaler in Chicago on May 9.  I'm thinking there is a large chance it will not happen.  My ticket is bought so I'll go when it does.  Respect to Inhaler but it's gonna hurt even more if The Head and the Heart, which is a couple weeks later in Ann Arbor has to be halted. 

    Are you worried about the coronavirus stopping the concerts?

  11. I’m going to see Cygnus X-2, a local Rush cover band who are planning a big tribute to Neil Peart, but first I’m gonna see the Wedding Band, a supergroup that features the singer from Ugly Kid Joe and Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo from Metallica, and they promise to play “all the songs that you hate hearing at your friends wedding.” 😀
