Are You Experienced?

Lot’s of serious guitar playing going on at last nigh (3/19) at the Jimi Hendrix tribute tour at the Louisville Palace, in the heart of beautiful downtown Louisville, Kentucky just blocks away from Positively Fourth Street.


All the old familiar tunes like Hey Joe, All Along the Watch Tower, and Purple Haze were on display for an adoring audience. Some of the biggest names in Show Biz were there to cut some mean licks and shake up the bricks.


Buddy Guy

80 year old, down by law, Buddy Guy was there. He was a major influence on Hendrix as well as Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughn. Buddy Guy is a six time Grammy winner and is ranked #23 best guitar player of all time by Rolling Stone.


Beth Hart and Kenny Wayne Shepherd


Beth Hart and Johnny Lang

Beth Hart was the whole reason I went to this concert. She has already stolen my heart and damned if she didn’t steal the show. Blues Magazine once dubbed Beth Hart as the Ultimate Female Rock Star. But to me she is the best blues singer this side of Blue Heaven.


Zakk Wylde is a former Ozzy Osborne band member and now solo artist and master guitarist.

Of all the things I have ever done in my life I don’t think there has ever been anything quite so exciting as attending a live musical concert.

Excuse me while I kiss the sky….

  1. My family loves almost every style or genre of music. My brothers and I all played in marching, symphonic and pep bands. We cannot sing but if listening to a live band we’ll dance and sing! πŸŽΆπŸŽ‰

  2. Awesome, Benn! I’m very proud of your granddaughter! College marching band is really strenuous and fabulous to listen to.
    My youngest daughter’s roommate at University of Dayton lives in Louisville. (Erin’s married and owns a house there.)
    When they graduated, Felicia went down to live there and work in financial stuff. They were roommates for a couple of years. I traveled down there a few times. We walked in and out with the girls into bars as well as many restaurants along the river had bands or music playing. It was a blast!
    I love Beth Hart, Buddy Guy and miss Leonard Cohen. Some people realize the talent Lyle Lovett has, and I love his voice!
    At the McGovern convention in Cleveland I saw James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel, Carole King and Carly Simon. It was an awesome experience while still in high school.
    My favorite concert ever was seeing Elton John with Kiki Dee at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was a real lively and gorgeous performer!
    Next best would probably be Charlie Daniels Band. Todd Rundgren came to BGSU where I went to college and also Harry Chapin’s brother, Tom, sang very similarly on stage, one piano, one tall stool and a guitar with a mike on. Folk songs which are so powerful!

    In a good way, I got taken to listen to a wide variety of music genres. At Ohio State fair I saw Beach Boys, Kenny Loggins, and several I cannot think of right now. πŸ˜‰ My artist brother Randy and I saw Three Dog Night, America and Herman’s Hermits at our local Delaware County Fair. Huey Lewis and the News is better than many in performance and vocal quality. We saw them at the old Clippers stadium.
    I guess I should admit I wish I could have seen the Eagles or the Beatles. This time I took up a lot of your space, feel free to delete this, Benn.

      • Oh, isn’t he a great singer!? Lyle Lovett once was married to Julia Roberts and some people didn’t get it, but his gentle demeanor and singing persona were very attractive, I think! Have a wonderful week ahead, Benn. 🌞

  4. Love it! I’m so old that when I was a teen I wandered into the Cafe Wha? in the Village and there he was, unknown, and we were all talking and wishing there was a folk guitarist playing instead but the minute he riffed, the audience shut up and that was the beginning of my getting back into electric guitar. Nice post!
