My wallet wasn't so lucky but this July will make it 40 years since my first Clapton concert and I have never missed a NY show. Yes, Mom had to take us and pick us up. First time I ever smelled marijuana too. Eric gets a big pass from me the GR ageist, because his wife is 30 years younger and I don't care a bit.

I'm happy for Pattie, she's still that bird from Hard Days Night to me and she's still the only woman in rock history to have four love songs written for and about her.
