November Rain

Not quite fall, but the change of seasons is in the air. And the leaves are just coming down, so it will be soon enough. I can’t believe Halloween is just a week from Sunday.

Still not close to being over from two weeks ago. I was thinking about a song over the fall season, and it hit me. This classic from GNR, November Rain.

To make it even better, GNR is joined by Rock royalty, Sir Elton John. From the 1992 MTV Music Awards, back when MTV actually played music, and wasn’t another reality TV hellhole. 

Have a great weekend.

A long two weeks…

As I approach my 57th birthday, this last year has been rough. And got worse last week. One of my my two best friends from high school passed at 54.

I won’t say much, other than enjoy your family and friends. You never know when your number is up.

I’ll leave this Friday with three of Al’s favorites.

Billy Joel, Piano Man.

REM, Loosing My Religion.


Prince, Raspberry Beret

Al, until we meet again.
