Live 5/13/95


What a strange name for a band. I went to see Live live! Pete Droge opened for Live and I remember thinking he sounded very Tom Petty-ish. Live was on tour for their breakthrough album Throwing Copper when they decided to roll through town. They rocked and at one point in the show while Ed Kowalczyk was singing, he disappeared and all of a sudden reappeared out in the stands where people were sitting. I had first heard Live through my Uncle Darryl, who owned their first album Mental Jewelry. This concert happened as my Junior year in high school was winding down. This was the year that I started skipping school with my friends. Sometimes to go cliff jumping, sometimes for no particular reason other than to skip school. It was never really a problem because my grades didn’t suffer as a result but I did finally get into trouble for writing my own absence notes because I was unaware of the fact that my dad knew the assistant principal somehow…
