    Just saw Brown Eyed Handsome Man on PBS, the Chuck Berry documentary. It reminded me that I was at his 60th birthday party, featured on the doc.

    Just went and checked what I'd been to and it turns out it was four months ago I saw it, my brain has turned to mush after going to the cinema to see fourteen movies in ten days from end of last month to first week of this month. It was called Miles Davis-Birth Of The Cool and was really good, his autobiography is also worth reading, he did indeed lead an interesting life. Re not getting the music, I'd recommend trying something like Sketches Of Spain in which he incorporated flamenco type music to On The Corner for which the jazz critics crucified him as it was full on electro jazz funk.





    And check out his ex wife, Betty Davis

    LOL, after seeing that you framed your old ticket stubs, just like I have, I recognized the one from The Variety Playhouse on Euclid ave. in Atlanta !!!! I've been there about 3 times, it's a fantastic music venue ! (Met Junior Brown at his tour bus around back, and got him to autograph my ticket!)
    On a related note, back when i was stationed at Camp Pendleton, Ca around 1984, Chuck Berry AND James Brown were playing a club in the area! I tried hard to get my buds interested, and even though we were all big concert hounds, nobody gave a damn about going !
    I mentioned at again a month or so later, and they all went, "What? Really? When was that? Dude,we woulda gone to that".
    F-ing idiots. All I could do was gnash my teeth :mad:.

    That was my one and only time at that place in Atlanta. I remember they had a good used record store in the little Bohemian enclave when I purchased the ticket that afternoon. It was Randy Newman. I recall sitting/standing in the back for the entire show and then walking to the stage and waving and saying thanks when he was taking his final bows. Really good show. It's fun to frame some tickets. I hang frames in the powder room and the guest bathroom upstairs. It's cool to see which tickets excite guests the most. Unfortunately it's typically whoever passed away most recently. Every once in awhile it's "Wow, Mr. Joe, you saw the Clash at the Capitol Theater." "Great kid honey. Don't marry him."

    "All You Need is Love: The Story of Popular Music", 1977
    It was a 16-episode documentary series. They trace the roots back almost 200 years or so, IIRC. They had an amazing collection of people to interview, field recordings, concert footage etc.
    See https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0247846/
    I've watched it on archive.org but, sadly, it's gone.
