Wolf Trap Performance

Review by Stoney (Switch to

Hail! Hail! the gang's all here, and what a gang it was. Last night's performance of "A Walk Down Abbey Road, A Tribute to The Beatles" was an outstanding show. From the opening "Magical Mystery Tour" to "Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End", this group cooks. Highlighting the tour was an unbelievable performance by Anne Wilson. This Rock Icon didn't miss a note while belting out some of her most difficult material. Todd Rundgren was his usual silly self, totally capturing the audience with his showmanship. But wait......what about Todd's talent? Todd performed the Nazz hit "Open my Eyes", his solo rendition of "Hello It's Me" and yes, "Bang the Drum" with brilliance. Additionally Todd rose to the occasion with several glistening solos on his old (very coolly painted) Gibson SG and some beautiful work on the 12 string doing a solo performance of "Hey, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away". MVP's to this show, however were Geoffrey Townsend and Dave Pack on guitars and Steve Luongo on Drums. Dave and Geoffrey provided rock solid guitar chops and solos throughout while Steve just kept things pumping, taking and giving cues all night long. John Entwistle and Alan Parsons performances were incredible to say the least. But both were somewhat understated in the fanfare. John and Alan did what they do best ...... They make everyone else's' jobs easier. DON'T MISS THIS SHOW!!!!
