I took this pic with my phone.
It's blurry... but it's AL GREEN!!!!!
...And I was standing about 6 ft. from him! He was shaking people's hands, but right before he got to me... alas!!! He turned to his right, and walked off stage!!! SO CLOSE!!!
"Tired of Being Alone"
By Al Green
But he was amazing!!! This was the first concert I went to by myself. I don't know why, but I just wanted to do this one with just me.
He did most of the songs that I love, and threw in some snippets of classic R&B and Soul by The Temptations, Four Tops, Otis Redding and Sam Cooke!
There were also plenty of funny, and beautiful asides, that made it feel like a room full of close friends!
To me, it felt like the theme of his performance that night was... Happiness...
Open yourself up freely... to Happiness!!!
So I'll continue to make that my theme!!
