Eddie Money, Lou Gramm and Mickey Taylor at Mayo PAC in Morristown, NJ Jingle Bell Rock

Thursday, December 1
As mentioned in earlier posts, Eric and I have become friendly with rocker Eddie Money.  He is a supporter of the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and a heckuva funny guy.  He and his manager invited us backstage for his Jingle Bell Rock performance at the Mayo Performing Arts Center in Morristown, NJ with fellow rockers Lou Gramm of Foreigner and Mickey Thomas of Starship.

It was an honor being there as they prepared for the show, and a unique perspective on their work as seen from behind the curtain.

Knowing that professional cameras would not be permitted at the venue, I only brought my "toy" Minolta point-and-shoot but was able to capture these two videos.  I posted them both to YouTube.

The finale .. about 2 minutes ..
And the encore .. Eddie Money performing "Shakin" .. about 4 minutes.  As you can see I was totally fascinated by the stage lighting!
A wonderful evening .. Thank you Eddie and Paul!
