We finally got to see Joe in person last week when he came to Salt Lake to open for the Steve Miller Band.
I travelled light, taking only my phone and knitting.
The phone's camera has limited resolution, so you can just barely see Cocker:
He sang our favorites, such as "You Can Keep Your Hat On," and "A Little Help From My Friends." He screamed and he twitched.
It was super.
It was hard to knit because two chicks kept climbing over us as they left for beer, the bathroom, and who knows what else. It was hard to see because aging hippies in front of us stood up to groove. I took earplugs for both of us, having been to an outdoor concert more recently than Paul. It was loud even with earplugs.
It was super anyway.
We did not stay for Steve Miller. Paul has very specific tastes in music.
*After the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix started breaking up or dying I became a classical music nerd and for about ten years I didn't listen to much rock that Paul didn't bring home.
