My mama and daddy LOVE Jackson Browne, so I grew up on The Pretender, Saturate Before Using, For Everyman, Running on Empty, and in my teenage years, I'm Alive. Last night, Cari and I had a lovely dinner & drinks in Temescal, and then headed to the Greek Theater, which is definitely my new favorite concert venue. Outdoor amphitheaters are the best, especially when you live in California and the weather's perfect all the time!
I'd been stressing so much lately (job, apartment, relationship, some family stuff--it all comes at once, huh?) that I can't even keep my food down :( . . . but then Jackson Browne took my sorrows right away as I sat straight ahead of him in the beautiful Berkeley evening air and listened to my favorite crooner (who doesn't sound any different than he did 30 years ago, might I add. And he's still pretty hot for a 62 year old--just sayin').
Other bands/singers that take me right back to my childhood:
Crosby, Stills, & Nash
