The End Of The Questions {Part four}

I’m at the end of your interrogation questions. This really was fun and I would advise for you to also pose an open question and answer if you feel so obliged. NOT one person asked an inappropriate question which does make me wonder: are we even friends?

My friend Dawn sent this to me the other day and said I really needed to have it; it had my name all over it.

Not sure if any of you remember but in one of my posts several years ago I quoted my youngest child when she said to me: “Are you ever appropriate?

To know me is to love me.

Anyhoo, I have two unanswered questions:

Mark (Swinged Cat) asked: What is the best concert you ever attended? Why? And is there one artist or band, living or dead, you wish you could (or could have) seen?

This is such an awesome question; Mark and I are both big fans of live music. Well, if I had to pick ONE concert that was the best, it would have to be that one I saw on a blind date with a certain someone in August of 1985. That was a LIFE Changing concert to say the least. But I honestly didn’t remember the music as much as my date. We’ve seen some amazing artists in various places all of the country, but one that stands out as Super is when the Coach surprised me (and several friends) by booking a trip to NYC for my 40th birthday and while there we had VIP tickets to Farm Aid. Ya’ll know I’m obsessed with Dave Matthews, right? We’ve seen him at least 20 times, but this time there was also John Mellencamp, Willie Nelson, The Counting Crows, Neil Young, Mere Haggard, The Allman Brothers, Montgomery Gentry and many more. It was an all day affair with some of my dearest friends. *sigh* to be Forty again.

One person I would have LOVED to have seen in concert is Prince. I was always a big fan; he was an amazing artist.


I can HEAR YOU! Kidding. I really can’t, this damn tinnitus….

AT and UJ have two sons; Patrick and Christopher. {Aunt Trisha is one of my Mom’s younger sisters} I believe Patrick reads my blog, or at least he tells me he reads my blog.

I have seven cousins in total between both sides, some of them live within a few hours of us, but I rarely see them which makes me sad. My paternal Grandma told me that when she was gone I would have to be the Matriarch and keep everyone in touch, but damn, it’s been hard with these guys; I finally threw in the towel after so many failed attempts.

But, I do see Patrick as he lives in GA; we always get together for Thanksgiving and sometimes we would see each other during the summer in either FL or GA. But, now that we have a place in GA we will see him more. He just came up and spent a week with Coach in I back in May in GA.

UJ, AT and Patrick at our house a few Thanksgiving’s ago. Patrick is a fan of any holiday that is ‘food centered’, so I know we don’t need a DNA test to prove we’re blood related.

Since Patrick is the only one I see and he *reads* my blog, he is my absolute favorite cousin.

So that’s all I know about that.

*Suz takes a bow and thanks the audience for their applause*

What artist you like to see alive or dead? I mean, I don’t want to see a DEAD artist, you know what I mean.

    I love DMB, too. But my husband can’t stand them, so we’ve never seen them in concert. What’s wrong with him, right? I feel as though they are a love them or hate them band. My answer to who I would have wanted to see is either Prince or Bowie.

  2. Aww, I love Patrick. If you’re reading this Patrick, Hi! I also love food-centered holidays, so I think we would get along very well. 🙂

    I am envious (in a good way) that you got the chance to see Prince. When he died, that was the first thing I felt sad about.

    I love these posts so much. There is so much beautiful human connection in blog posts that sometimes doesn’t always come out.

    DMB and Chicago don’t mix. If you aren’t sure, Google Dave Matthews Band and Chicago bridge. You’re welcome.

    1. You might not have had any coffee yet, I DID NOT see Prince. He was one that I would have loved to see; his music literally got me through my junior and senior year of high school.

      I know about the DMB bus dump and Chicago; ughhhh…Can I just say I believe it was the BUS DRIVER’S mistake and NOT MY BELOVED DAVE? He’s all about the earth and not pooping on the earth.

  3. Wouldn’t it have been great to have been able to see The Beatles? My sister did when they did their first concert in Cleveland. I’d rather have seen them later–post Sgt. Pepper–but I think they were done touring by then.

    I had a lot of fun at Rod Stewart’s concerts; he’s warm and funny. My sister and brother and I took my parents to see Neil Diamond for their anniversary, and it was a terrific show. In my youth (100 years ago), we saw Genesis a couple times and Phil Collins solo. All good.

    Have you ever seen the Trans-Siberian Orchestra at Christmas? We did that as a family a few times. It’s the only Christmas music my husband can tolerate.

    1. Yes, the Beatles. *sigh* Can you imagine?

      We did see Rod Steward in the early 2000s and I loved his show. He is iconic.
      I feel like I saw Phil Collins back in the day too; we used to go to so many concerts, sometimes I forget, but I did keep all my ticket stubs in an album. I’ll have to double-check.
      Speaking of concert tickets, it’s so disappointing now (or in the past few years) that you don’t get a paper ticket anymore. NO evidence.

      I’ve never seen the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, but I do enjoy their tunes around the holidays.


  4. Farm Aid would have been awesome! I freakin’ love Mellencamp (who I have seen) and Counting Crows (sadly, not yet). I also agree that Prince is a great one-who-got-away.

    For the record, I totally wanted to ask an inappropriate question, but I don’t know you that well. Yet. Then again, maybe that would’ve helped! 😉

  5. Sorry for shouting. 😉 I love Patrick’s name, and I do remember his visit. I met my mom’s cousins while at a family wake when I was a teen and I was shocked that she didn’t see them regularly. Now that I’m older and my cousins are busy with their families, it makes a bit more sense. I’ve invited my 2 local cousins to Tank’s grad party next week – sometimes they show up to those events and we reconnect. I only have 7 cousins. Both sides. My kids? I can’t count all of them.

    I’ve seen U2 in concert. Amazing. Once while studying in Ireland. Would’ve loved to see Prince. Not a huge music person. Still blaming the folks for driving cars with an AM radio. Not that I hold grudges. Coach and I saw Hootie and the Blowfish and it was a fiasco. Anything that could go wrong. That Farm Aid concert sounds sweet. Even I recognize those singers/groups. Fun way to turn 40.

    1. Seeing U2 in Ireland sounds amazing; I saw them in Miami and it was a great show.

      Yeah, I know you didn’t grow up listening to music 24/7, so it makes sense. We love HATBF; we’ve met Mark Bryan (he founded the band with Darius) several times at the songwriter festivals we attend-he’s a very sweet and genuine person.


  6. This was a lot of fun and great questions and loved your answers. One hundred years ago, I saw The Bee Gees in concert with my friend Amy. It was a lot of fun, I also went to a Neil Diamond concert with married friends. He is not my favorite and of course he just kept returning to the state!!!
    Love ya!
