36 years gone

First let me say how cool it was to see Deep Purple again. The last time was St. Petersburg, Fl in 1971 or so. I was impressed how accessible the band was to the crowd – lots of smiles & personal contact.

The sound was awful – we were 15 rows up from the orchestra seats off to the side by the doors. Everything was muddy there resulting in too much bottom end & not enough highs to balance it out.

You can see from the pictures how close we were. Edgar Winter sounded the same but with less presence. When The Purple started it was of course twice as loud & the distortion severely magnified.

I’m sorry my memory of the show is negative but like I said, I got off on the personal demeanor of the band members & that will have to hold me over.

The $45.00 T-Shirts were a surprise too. Keep rockin’ boys!
