A Walk Down Abbey Road

Review by Scott Sheppard (Switch to

I saw this show. The facility is a great place. I would definitely return. The prime rib, salmon, chicken, twice-basked potatoes, pasta, and salad were tasty. Next time we're renting jet skis.

We happened to bump into Todd at the sound check. He was very busy, but still said hello and shook hands.

The show opened with "Magical Mystery Tour" and ended with "Hey Jude." Todd was absolutely terrific. He was featured quite heavily throughout the performance. David Pack of Ambrosia was great in that he has the ability to sound like Eric Wolfson for the Alan Parsons songs and Paul McCartney for the Beatle songs. Ann Wilson's voice was just as good as the height of her Heart days. "Crazy on You" really rocked. Alan Parsons, who had never sung a lead vocal in his life, was very brave and did "Black Bird" alone on stage. John Entwistle is a great bassist, but his lead vocals bring the show to a crawl. The low point of the show was a goofy "Bang the Drum" followed by Entwistle's "Boris the Spider." Godfrey Townshend had the ability to sound like Roger Daltrey for the Who songs.

Todd was great on:

"While My Guitar Gently Weeps"
"Hide Your Love Away"
"Hello It's Me"
"Lady Madonna"
"Open My Eyes"

Even if you're not a Beatles fan, this show is worth seeing. It's great to see Todd do something other than "Love of the Common Man," "Cliche'", etc. Todd wore black leather pants and what I'll call "the puffy shirt from Seinfeld."

We spent the night. I arose at 7:30 am and went out on our balcony. I look down and who do I see below -- but Todd. He waited for a roadie to load his bags into his rental car and then off they dove -- what a coincidence.
