Oh, wait, I forgot to tell you about one other ingredient. . . rain, and lots of it. Well, as usual The New Cars don't let a little inclement weather stop them from putting on a great show. From first note to last, they were tight, bright and outa-sight. Kasim was back on stage after a long detour with Meatloaf, and he seemed ecstatic to be back in the engine compartment with Prairie Prince, churning out the power that makes this band such a mean machine.
Todd's wit was in evidence several times, and Elliot got a good one in as well. . . he was relating the story about asking Todd 'where he'd like to play on the fourth, and Todd said, "Why, Boston, of course!" So here we are in Lenox.' ( heh )
In spite of the weather and a mostly no-show audience for the lawn seating, THIS fourth was certainly among "the very best" of my life.
