So, I'm going to a concert tonight. Normally, I'm pretty "hard core" in my musical taste, though I can appreciate just about anything having grown up with my Grandparent's Big Band & "Old Blue Eyes" type music to my parents with the Beatles (mom) and the Beach Boys (dad). Yes, I even like Neil Diamond, not in a Saving Silverman type of way...but...well don't ask! LOL Being from Detroit, you GOTTA like Mo-Town from the 50's & 60's too.
I wouldn't have bought these tickets, but my BFF got them free so we're going. I can't believe that I'm actually going to see Bret Michaels, .38 Special & Lynard Skynard! LOL... Yes, I admit, I was into the 80's hair bands & listened to Poison back then...but after all of the "Rock of Love" crap on VH1 now, I lost any type of respect (?) for Bret. I never was into .38 Special & Skynard...well, let's just say EVERYONE knows most of their popular songs due to Kid Rock, being used in commericals, etc.
I told my BFF (who's proud to be a redneck biker chick) that I'll go, but I'm kinda in awe that I'm looking forward to it. She told me that every redneck has to see Skynard at least once in their lifetime. I reminded her that I was FAR from being "redneck". Then she came back with: "You use Duct Tape, right? Then you've got a little redneck in you" BWHAHAHAHA I guess she's right.
I told her to keep quite about it cuz I didn't want the word to get out & she reminded me that I hang out with her, so everyone already knows! LOL...
God I love her, even if she is dragging me to a concert that I wouldn't have actually wanted to go to. I'll make the best of it, kick back on the lawn (it's outdoors), enjoy the night, toss back a few beers & just be a "free bird" hehehe...Yes, I had to
