“Rock N Roll is Still Alive”
For all of you out there, like me, who have been questioning whether or not true, non formulaic, raw, emotional rock n roll still exists, I have proof for you that it indeed does exist. I had the pleasure of watching the Foo Fighters at Jazzfest 2012 in New Orleans and walked away with many feeling. I was excited to finally see a band I had watched for so many years, but never been able to experience live. I felt blown away by true rock n roll history in front of my face. Above all, I felt lucky, lucky to see a band that will go into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame at a point in their careers where they are solidly established as one of the best acts in the business, but also at a point where they still have much to prove to fans and to themselves. The Foo fighters are a band that have traveled the world multiple times, walked away with Grammy’s, and have proven to be an amazing rock band capable of longevity in an industry that overs no promise of a single hit, much less a career. They are amazingly humble and immediately make a connection with the crowd. You can find a video of “Walk” performed by The Foo Fighters that I recorded at Jazzfest 2012 over on my YouTube channel.
“The sea of people at the Acura Stage watching The Foo Fighters performance was staggering. The Energy was amazing. The performance was brilliant.”
If you have never been to a large festival like Jazzfest, Voodoo, or even Rock on the Range, you are sorely missing out on a very unique experience and one that proves Rock N Roll is Still Alive.
This Easter Weekend was a wonderful getaway for myself and my wife. We visited Frenchmen St. in New Orleans. We visited her favorite place, Bourbon Street. We ate delicious meals at both Gordon Biersch and Pat O’Brian’s. We got to see old and new friends as well. We watched a New Orleans Hornets game also Whether you love New Orleans or not, no one can deny the allure of this town full of life and history.
This breakaway from work was exactly what I needed to rejuvenate my passion and get back to doing what I do best. Building my brand and the Last In Concepts brand.
