Just a little shout out to my "Honey"! He just called me as excited as a little kid. He is working for the Tom Petty & Steve Winwood show in Alpharetta, GA and Steve Winwood invited him to hang with him this afternoon while he practiced for the show tonight. He was a major Traffic Fan and this is a pretty big thrill for him.

He had a great time and Steve Winwood was as nice a person as you could ask for. After he finished practicing they went outside and chatted and watched the rain come down (it rained cats and dogs all afternoon in Alpharetta). He said he was very every day and they talked a lot about the old Traffic days and what he is doing now. He is very satisfied with his work and just loves working. He said he never gets tired of playing and touring. He has a friend who has a horse farm here and he and his wife able to spend the day prior to the show hanging out with their friends and horseback riding. The wife showed up and he introduced her and they chatted some more. She is a southern girl from Nashville and my hubby said it was funny listening to his English accent and her southern drawl.

He also spent a little time with Tom Petty, they have worked together before and the hubby is always amazed when they remember him. He was busy and they passed each other in the back and Tom recognized him and greeted him with a big grin, hey “Randy”, how the hell are you? I have not seen you in minute, how is the family, so on and so on. It was great show for him everybody was really happy to be there. For him the highlight was the last songs when Steve and Tom did “Can’t Find My Way Back Home” & “Give Me Some Lovin” together. He always comes home loaded down with swag, so that was pretty funny, he is like a little kid at Christmas!

The next adventure will be a weekend with Kenny Chesney at Tuner Field here in Atlanta. Now I know people might think Kenny Chesney? This is gig he does every year (but will be the first Turner Field Show) and it is always a blast. He knows all the crew and Kenny’s family are really fun people. I will be up there for the Sunday show getting the big arena treatment which can be pretty spectacular. For him he meets a lot of people in his job but when he gets to meet one of his “rock” hero’s and they are as humble as Mr. Winwood was, it really is a treat and to get a little private show will be something he will treasure.

Kenny is known to be a nice guy, and a lover and a bit of a player of bluegrass to boot. Kenny learned bluegrass while at Belmont College in Nashville, I believe, before he became famous. One of his guitarists -Tim (trey) Hensley, is a Cincinnati boy whose new solo bluegrass album was co-produced by Kenny and Buddy Cannon. Give Tim a shout for me if you run into him. Sounds like fun.

Mike Campbell & Steve Winwood jamming and trading solos on "Can't Find My Way Back Home" last night was out of this world. One of those moments you would have never have thought of and worked magically.

Tom Leadon came out and the ripped up a pair of great tunes from the latest Mudcrutch CD: "Scare Easy" and "Lover of the Bayou." Benmont Tench shined on both as did Campbell again. The middle of the show they really jammed out including some of these tunes.

AMAZING night of music. It was 10 extra minutes of Petty (couple old classics) away from being one of, if not THE, best show I've ever seen....rank it very high.
