What a pleasant night, B.B. Kings Grill on the legendary 42nd street in NYC is an amazing place to see any concert. But to see Todd at a place like this was a real treat. It brought back memories of the week that i saw Todd play the Bottom line shows back in 1978. I sat down at a reserved table exact center stage front.

I met alot of people that i have spoken to over the years thru email and after meeting them face to face for the first time I was surprised at how warm everyone was that night. It felt like a 20 year high school reunion.

Well the show started promptly at 8:10 and the audience was treated to a very relaxed show with the usually flubs. I didn't write down a set list so someone please post it. Todd actually was joking all night long about not wanting to get over to the keyboards for fear of screwing up. Jessie came out and hammered out great versions of With A Twist tunes. Jess joked all night long with todd. In the audience were part of the AWDAR band, John Ent. (the who) was there along with his backup band. he seemed to be enjoying the show. Todd seemed to love playing to this audience and by the end of the night he had roaring standing ovations.

The real highlight of the evening for me was going back stage and talking to Todd about the Paradise Gained / Rack Job 2 project. He told me its been a releif for him while touring on the bus with the AWDAR tour. It has really helped passed the time for him. After getting a couple of pictures with him and getting some signatures on my discs, he had to go.

This night brought back some old memories of past years seeing todd. oooh what memories.

I'll post some pictures in a couple of days.
