I went with a bunch of people to see dolly parton on the day after thanksgiving. I had never seen her perform live [we had met some 12 years ago on oscar night when âI will always love youâ was up for an award]…the show was unbelievable and her voice was pure and real. There was a depth to the entire evening that surprised everyone; she ended with âimagineâ, as well as singing many of her greatest songs, âjoleneâ, âcoat of many colorsâ and of course âI will always love youâ. She remains one of the greatest of american songwriters in my opinion [she makes my top 5], and this show was nothing short of amazing; she was genuine and from the heart. You can see in the picture how happy I was to meet her again.
Tonight I go to see patti smith perform âhorsesâ at BAM, celebrating the 30th anniversary of its release in 1975. Its been a great month of music for sure. Lets hope december brings more!
