When my husband's mom died in Jan. of 2009, he was an absolute mess. Completely despondent, verging on suicidal and I really was out of my element and his depression was not something I was equipped to deal with.

Mid-February I heard the ABB was playing once again at the Beacon in March. I saw some good seats available for a Monday night concert.

Since we live 'flying distance' from NYC, I was pretty sure I'd get a "no" from the husband, but when i asked him if he wanted to go, he said YES!

I quickly got air, hotel and two sets of tickets for two nights... and a little jaunt to NYC was quickly arranged. Saturday night back row orchestra seats; crappy seats, Monday night front row loge seats; MUCH better.

This was not a cheap Four day trip, but I tell you, what... it was JUST what the doctor ordered. A little, "out of time and out of place"....

Husband had a great time being somewhere different... seeing a favorite band... and just enjoying the anonymity that is NYC....

He came back markedly different and the grieving process made a step up quicker there after.

I have never forgotten this trip and how much it meant for my husband, and for me too.

Here is a video of an entire song, Statesboro Blues, that I was able to record.

At mark 4:23... you will hear my husband roar a bit! ; )

He watches this video to this day all the time!

Enjoy, ya peach heads!!!
