Yet Another Loss....Gordon Waller of Peter & Gordon....

....died this past Friday. I had listened to Peter and Gordon throughout my teen years, buying each of their newly released albums, and playing them until they were white with wear.

Recently, I rediscovered them while watching Dave Stewart's My American Prayer video during Barack t Obama's presidential campaign. Finding Peter and Gordon performing together once again was more than I could have hoped for.

I had been following their tours dates in hopes that I would someday be lucky enough to attend one of their concerts. I will always be saddened by this missed opportunity.

I thought they were fabulous. I still do.

Disappointing News.....


Tess is out for the count for the next five weeks....a two places...left wrist will remove her from several concerts with the Arlington Heights Community Concert Band this summer....which is the first disappointment.

Second...the upcoming concert on the 15th was to have featured her much anticipated, much worked for flute solo. Fortunately, this will be rescheduled within the fall concert series, but still.....

This also means no piano, no guitar, nor any other musical pursuits for five long weeks. To a musician, this is an eternity.

When she of Tess' purple cast will follow. Life intrudes....
