Default Thanks For The Memories

I enjoy watching the old youtube prewar (the Net54 connection) videos of the big band era, which along with jazz has always been my musical taste.

As you know there is a comment section below the videos, which I usually do not read, but .....

After viewing a particularly inspirational performance by Glenn Miller, I began to scan the comments, which were uniformly positive.

One gentleman went so far in his rave to say the video reminded him vividly of the last Glenn Miller performance he attended in Chicago in 1971. He didn’t mention the venue, but it didn’t matter.

Glenn Miller unfortunately died in 1944.

All my cards are centered, some are just cut incorrectly.

Only 37.10% crazy based on recent polling data, but still a weird dude.

And he had just come from seeing him in Kalamazoo, where he had a gal.

Before I moved to Florida in 1993, I lived in Baltimore. I lived three or four blocks from a smallish green space with a bandstand. Cutting through that park one Saturday afternoon, the wife and I were surprised to see the banner hanging on the bandstand, "Glenn Miller Band", as the band played. This was perhaps 1992. Not one player playing that day was out of diapers in 1944. Most were not even born yet.

and the band played on (in Glenn Miller’s case and others)......

With the ever increasing number of “tribute” concerts, one has to wonder how many in the audience are inadvertently duped.

MY BIG CONCERNS ABOUT AMERICA:

Internally- We spend too much time assuring our rights without learning the responsibilities that should accompany them.
Externally - No matter how much we claim to take the higher moral ground, we have neither respected nor attempted to understand other cultures.

If the Roy Orbison Hologram Tour can really exist anything is possible concert-wise.

I saw him perform live(?) in 1964, and he was a hologram then. I’m not sure about the “Pretty Woman”.

I saw him about 30 years ago when he was (again) reviving his career...as you implied, not much stage 'charisma', but he still had that amazing voice!
