Ha! Not too much for the paper, Michelle. We didn't have room for both photos in the print paper, but I added the one finger salute photo by Eddie Spaghetti to our online version. Thanks for getting that to us. It's awesome.
Erica ! Thanks for the great review - but where is the picture with the one finger salute? Too much for the paper? ; )
Thanks so much for your support, talk soon!
"Very loose pants" is a reference to the 'Hammer-Pants" style of chefs pants. Action used to cook professionally. Get with it.
I can only hope management improves. The Nickel Creek concert earlier this month was the WORST concert going experience I've ever had. The only thing the Wilma staff cared about was stopping cellphone videos, even though aisles were completely blocked and there was a crazy amount of smoking going on in an extremely overcrowded theater, which I am pretty sure isn't a model for fire resistance or fire safety. Oh, and that premium price ticket you bought? You want a seat with that? Sucks for you! Most laughable was when anyone bought a bottle of water, they kept the plastic top "so it couldn't be thrown or become a projectile." Really? But you want to walk around with more beer cans than you can carry? No problem.
That's a good idea, Bob. Here's a Charles Bradley jam that I particularly like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-jYpdRw2Y…
As the 2 commenters have mentioned above, sounds like you aren't quite up to date on what Rick has been doing. His concerts are filled with such high energy and are so fan friendly, you should try and catch one, he tours almost 100 dates a year. Also, you might want to take a look at a fan documentary that really showcases Rick's amazing connection with his many, many very loyal fans. "An Affair of the Heart" is the title of this awesome film which had its New York City premier in October 2012. It's both heartwarming and funny, it'll make you laugh and cry. The film crew followed Rick for over two years, gathering concert footage as well as interviewing Rick and the featured fans. The film focuses on 7 fans and shows the amazing connection they have with Rick and how he has touched their lives. It shows the 'human' side of Rick and how he loves his fans as much as we love him. Yellow Rick Road Productions did an awesome job filming this incredible documentary...It's a must see for fans and non-fans alike and you will definitely be a fan after watching this film. It's available on BluRay DVD at rickspringfielddoc.com as well as Amazon...and I guarantee you will LOVE it!!
It might be useful for these reviews to include links to what the author thinks are representative songs, available on Youtube, Soundcloud, etc.
I don't think you are quite up to date on Mr. Springfield and his accomplishments as a musician. I just spent the weekend attending two of his shows. He is more impressive now and puts on a much better show than he ever did in the 80s. And I know because I saw him 4 times back then as well.
Also have you really LISTENED to VIO or S4TEOTW? Because frankly they contain some of the best music he's ever written. His fan base (myself included) wouldn't be as strong as it is today if he didn't continually deliver fantastic music. How many other artists have had a core group of followers since the early 70s when he first got here and some from down under who've been fans since the 60s and his days in Zoot? You can't just write off somebody who can keep those people interested and completely entertained all those years (even when he quit to be a stay at home dad we were still there waiting for new music) as not having a hell of a lot of talent. His lyrics have matured along with all of us and his music continually and consistently rocks with the best of them. He has always been one hell of a guitar player and his music showcases that.
Both of his books were NYT bestsellers. Obviously the man can write. Not just song lyrics (for himself and many others) but now books as well.
He deserves so much more credit than he usually gets. There is so much more to him than Jessie's Girl.
Wow, sounds like you may not have seen him in concert recently. I've seen him twice (for the 1st time) recently and he is such an incredible musician. Truly a complete entertainer, not just someone re-hashing his youth. My husband (not a fan) also was totally impressed by his talent. I think his latest 2 albums, particularly "Venus in Overdrive", is some of the best stuff around. The books were good, a lot of fun, but having seen many, many rocks shows in my (many) decades, he's right up there with the best.

Thanks and God Bless you for your help, i will keep on help you to fight cancer in the World.
I remember the "Hog" Jerry Daniels well from Operation Grand Eagle, I wrote about him in my book BOHICA, later i was subpenaed to testify before Secret Federal Grand Juries in DC, then before Special Senate and Congressional committees, then a under oath with truth serum testimony in which still over 25 years later the video tape done is still Classified. Jerry was a great Agent and we both loved General Vang Pao and enjoyed working in this dark world.
Excellent review. Buying tickets this week.
Finally read this piece. Happy I did. One thing, though, Mr. Brooks: Your generalization about radio is only valid if you ignore college radio. I'm sure you meant commercial radio, but I feel like it's worth mentioning college radio, which has certainly been around for three decades or so, as a place "people who like music" can find something to listen to over the airwaves.
Long live music AND college radio!
I'm more than a bit confused as to why this reviewer was looking for comedy and declared it a flaw of Frances Kuffel's writing when none emerged. In my opinion, one of the threads of this memoir is that certain situations in life (in this case the dating scene over age 50) is not a fun time even if approached with hope, low expectations and a grain of salt. Perhaps the reviewer should stick to reading books that promise to entertain her.
I think what the reviewer is saying is NOT that she expected everything to be tied up with a shiny bow at the end, but that she was hoping that when Frances wrote "Maybe I needed me," it signified a change in Frances' behavior, maybe even an end to desperately searching in all the wrong places for love. I have to agree that a lot of the book was painful/sad and cringe-inducing.
I couldn't disagree more with this review. I found Frances Kuffel's honesty compelling, and her prose to be fun, dancing, and intelligent. The fact that there was no resolution to the story told is because it's a series of stories---because our lives are like that. Short little films. Odd docu-dramas and quirky short movies. What you might have found choppy and erratic about her tales, I found easy to follow. The book flowed for me. Perhaps it's because I understand what it is to search for something and never find it. The idea of any book having to have some sort of resolution is silly. Life isn't resolved until death, and I certainly don't want the author of a memoir to die at the end of her story. I want her to dust herself off, pick herself up, and start all over again. That's what Frances Kuffel has done---in this book and in her life.
Why don't you do an article on the EVIL George Soros, the billionaire who says he would like to see the US dollar collapse and would like to help make it happen. The guy who has donated over a billion dollars to left wing liberals over the last decade. Once again you show how one sided you are. Why doesn't some one do an article about WHY Obama had lawyers hide all of his college records (and other records from his past). Why would a presidential candidate go to those lengths to hide his past?? Answer me that also.
