Was given a night at a supper club where she played with her band.  Very classy deal. South of the Thunderbird.  Was a pretty famous place.  Our table was right up front.  Was a fun time and the music was great!

Wasn't all that long ago my wife and I saw her at Mille Lacs Grand Casino concert. Also, several years ago we went on a bus tour through her childhood location. Checked out he house etc. Nice trip

Carlton Celebrity Room?  Went there a couple times, once for Leon Russell and don’t remember the other one. Might have been B.B. King. Good dinner and then the show.

Ya that was the place.  Thanks I couldn't remember the name.  That would have been in about 1984 I suppose.

I saw Leon at Troutaire, too. Great show. We smuggled some wine in a jug cooler under a blanket and then sat on the blanket. When the show started, the whole crowd, including us, rushed the to the fence in front of the stage. I thought for sure our blanket and wine would be demolished. I looked back and in the middle of that crowd, the blanket was surrounded by people but totally undisturbed—not a single foot on it.
The last time I saw him was at the Dakota. Pretty sad show. He was in and out of the building on a little rascal scooter. He died not too long after that.

Lost another friend last week. That makes 2 in the last 3 weeks. I seem to be reaching the age where I'm losing friends and family and also the stars / performers I grew up with are dying off.

Just reinforces the old saying "enjoy everyday as it might be your last."

Enjoyed her in Murder She Wrote. Didn't realize how many other acting jobs she was involved in. Talented lady.

She was a great singer.  Great band too.  I was surprised at how old she was.  79 I think.

Great interviewer. Loved Gilda Radnor's parodying her as Baba Wawa too.

Jeff Beck passed away from meningitis yesterday at 78. While he didn't have the commercial success that fellow Yardbirds Page & Clapton did, he was usually rated among the top 5 guitarists of all time. Ironically the day after his friend Jimmy Page's 79th birthday.

No doubt Jeff Beck was a great guitarist.  I saw him play a double-billing with Stevie Ray Vaughn at Northrop Auditorium right when Stevie was rising to the peak of his popularity.  I suspect most folks were there to see Stevie.

Stevie opened and was fantastic.  When Jeff took over, he didn't play his classic stuff in his old style, but was rather playing some new "experimental" stuff that the crowd wasn't digging.  No one "got" what he was trying do do.  People were literally streaming out in the isles and ended up hanging out on the steps talking about what just happened.

Then some guy came out and shouted, "Stevie's back on stage!" and everyone rushed back in for the encores and was re-energized. 

I think Beck really suffered that night because SRV was just that much better.  RIP JB.

Been a fan since the Yardbird days even though he wasn't nearly as popular as the other 2. I've got some 70's vinyl of his including this 1. https://music.apple.com/us/album/jeff-beck-with-the-jan-hammer-group-live/157274380 He never sang much, but he didn't have to..........................his guitar did it for him. RIP

They're dropping like flies. He lived a lot longer than I thought he would. Must've been all that clean living.  :coffee:
