multiple choice: headbanger edition

Greg and I sprung for a babysitter last week (my sister charges Starbucks love) and assumed the rocker position: we saw Alice in Chains/Velvet Revolver. Now I had my doubts; I mean, the dude from Chains died for pete's sake, so just how good could it be?

Well, take it from this grungy girl: it was amazing. My inner rock-girl rejoiced.

My headbanger brethren were swaying around me, even moshing a bit. The couple across the way lit up a pipe, um, with non-tobacco, in broad daylight which prompted the mother in front of us to admonish her teenage sons to hold their breath. All night.

Scott Weiland of STP and now VR was a kick to watch; he was dramatic and a bit loopy. (I am choosing to believe that he had sucked down a slushy strawberry margarita before the show, like me. Say 'no' to drugs Scott. Just say 'no'!) VR played their songs, Guns 'N Roses tunes and some STP for good measure - a composite of their careers. We got a 3 for 1 deal.

(And yes Stephanie, Slash still wears that hat and plays the dickens out of the guitar.)

I think I'm kind of excited that Slash still wears the hat. But I must say - "plays the dickens out of that guitar"?? Are you 80? hehee

And I hope you held your breath, too!

Yes, I am 80 - don't you think I am aging well?

{Greg and I brought gas masks for that very purpose. Very handy.}
