He’s probably long gone by now, but RS was only a few miles away this weekend.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, I wasn’t able to go to his concert at the fair last night, which I was really sad about, but I was there in spirit. Can’t get a guitar pic or human touch when you’re there in spirit, but some people shared videos that I watched afterward, so that helped. (Thank you to those who shared your videos and pictures!)
I ended up giving my tickets to a friend (it’s difficult to sell tickets to a free show) so she got to see him for the first time and in exchange, she sent me a photo so I could see what the view would have been from my seat in the fifth row:
As you can see, he is back to playing guitar in concert – the first time in several weeks after his surgery. Whoo-hoo! (Though sorry I missed the big comeback.)
It was also his and his wife’s 33rd wedding anniversary – so Happy Anniversary to the two of them. And more family trivia – today is his oldest son’s birthday – so happy birthday to Liam.
And since we’re on the subject of trivia, here’s an interview with a local radio station before the AZ State Fair, where we learn a little more about RS besides that he loves cotton candy. I’ve never been to Australia, but I did watch “Jaws” at a young age so I feel exactly the same way about sharks.
So that’s that, nothing else to report. There are no RS concerts that I have tickets for, there’s no word on “Magnificent Vibration” or “Late, Late at Night” sequels, there’s no updates on a release date for “Traces” and “The Snake King” isn’t scheduled to come out until March 2018. Maybe we’ll get a sneak peek soon at a song from “The Snake King”? One of the pics say “I Know What You Want” so maybe that will be the first one we hear?
