I’ve seen these boys live. Have you? I took my pretty-boy singer/songwriter son, Hunter to the 40 Licks Tour when he was in 6th grade. I don’t get super-starstruck, but when I saw Mick Jagger take the stage, my first thought was “ohmygod…I’m breathing the same AIR as MICK!. I know, right? D O R K.  I was flooded with images of The Ed Sullivan Show,  Studio 54, Altamont, Andy Warhol, Maryanne, Bianca, Jerry, and the fact that I was THERE…with Hunter? Man.

Hunter, 2002

 

I’ve said it before, but I felt like I was taking him to SCHOOL.  This time, though, he was working on his Masters Degree.

I’m telling you people who laugh and make fun of the age of these legends. GO. Take it all in, and realize that we will NEVER see a band like this ever again.

 

This WILL be the last time.
