One Way Or Another

 I gotta tell you, my own personal rehearsals of 99 Luft Balloons were not going well. The song is a little out of my range, and it just wasn't sitting well with me. Band rehearsal was in San Diego last Sunday, and I called my brother when he was on his way down there and lobbied hard for them to drop Nena in favor of Blondie. Nena's definitely out, but a couple of the guys still need to learn the Blondie song.

I'm a Blondie fan myself. I say go with "Call Me". Deborah Harry is so cool.

Good luck with your preformance.

goodness, Debbie Harry was so hot.

years ago, I saw her open with her solo band for Tears for Fears. whenever they were touring for Songs From the Big Chair.

anyway, she went off, then came back for an encore wearing a full length fur, then totally stripped it off and was wearing only bra and panties. HOT! :)

oh, Tears for Fears was good, too..

Bird - 3/25!

Mike - No way! That sounds extremely cool. Did this happen up in the bay area?

Drunk - Welcome! I'll check out your blogs soon!

Yea, Bay Area. Forget the venue, but my guess would be like the Oakland Arena or something. I remember it was fairly good sized..
And that was a long time ago. Going on 20 years.

When you were seeing Debbbie Harry in the Bay Area, I was living in San Diego, going to State, and slam-dancing at on-campus X shows.

Good on you, young lady!

X kicks ass. I have seen them a couple times.

They opened for Bowie in San Jose in 1987.
Peter Frampton played Gitar.
