I forgot to mention that last week Wife and I went to see a show.
This guy has it going on. And his band Silvertone (who he's been with for 20 years) does too.
Now I'm not crazy about the slow stuff. I like good old rock and roll. You know, the kind none of the bands play anymore: hammerin' surf guitars, a bit of wah wah organ and straight-ahead drumming. But Chris does more than a little rock and rollin'.
He did a cover of "I Want You to Want Me" that had me thinking I was at Budokan. And he did Roy Orbison's Only the Lonely." Unlike most singers, Chris actually has the range to pull it off.
He also absolutely rocked on "Baby Did a Bad Bad Thing." This included an introductory story about the bass player that confirmed Rollie is a bad, bad man.
The entire show was fun, witty, engaging and rockin'. He's a star who doesn't know he's a star.
Oh, and he brought girls up on stage to dance. And when they couldn't dance, he mocked them.
Yes, he is my hero.
But I don't know Anson wasn't playing keyboard...
