In the Immortal Words of Edith Prickley -- "Could Be a Hot One!"

Well, this sounds like fun. Going to see The Immediate Family -- the older guys supergroup featuring veteran sidemen Waddy Wachtel, Leland Sklar, Russ Kunkel and Danny Kortchmar -- in Manhattan tomorrow evening.

Frankly, just hearing them tear up that song live will be worth the price of admission. But, adding to the merriment, friend of PowerPop, honorary member of The Floor Models, and all around rock legend Willie Nile will also be performing.

I'll report on Tuesday.

In the meantime, have a great weekend everybody!!!

Leading the charge for Repertory Rock. Like its older cousin Repertory Jazz people love it because the new stuff just isn't as good.

Pete --

I think you are correct. In any case, there's no denying that rock is now classical music.

Sorry... still say that the "optics" on Waddy Wachtel are "off-putting." Always needed to just stand behind the amps. Yes, I am that superficial.
