Autumn’s Fire, and a Stairway.

“Now Autumn’s fire burns slowly along the woods
And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.”  William Allingham

And as we wind on down the road

Our shadows taller than our souls.

There walks a Lady we all know

Who shines white light and wants to show

How everything still turns to gold.

And if you listen very hard.

The tune will come to you at last.

When all are one and one is all….

Led Zeppelin

  1. Wow. You have real battle scars. I have also been to an AC/ DC concert with my sons, but we did not lose our hearing. Allman Brothers was one of my favorite concerts as were Bob Seger and Tom Petty. My youngest son is a heavy metal fan and likes many of the European bands. My oldest is the Flogging Molly fan and our whole family saw them. I bet Joey Ramone was an interesting guy. Thanks for the memories. BTG

    • The funniest part of the Joey Ramone story is that I had no idea it was actually him until after the pinball game was over and he walked away. My boyfriend was speechless, “don’t you know who that is?” “I don’t know, some Ramone wannabe?” “Nope,that WAS Joey Ramone.” Later, he got my attention, waved and smiled at me when they took the stage for their set. Nice guy, wicked competitive. Good Times.

    • I lost my hearing for 3 days at the AC/DC Back in Black show… Note to self: avoid standing next to speakers when at a concert 😉 Got choked and punched by several guys who rushed the stage – then passed out in the front row at Judas Priest/KISS in 78. Woke up to Gene Simmons leaning over the stage and asking if I was OK. Played pinball with Joey Ramone at the Webster Theater in Hartford. Slamdancing at Hangar1 in Amherst, to a local punk band called the Pyjama Slave Dancers. And I can occasionally be found attending local hardcore metal shows because of my daughter and her friends. Great young people, and talented musicians! I remain behind the merch table these days though – Moshing would be the death of me I’m sure. Rock on! \m/
