Crossing the Memphis sky bridge from downtown to Mud Island, thoughts going back to the first time I heard the album “Mellow Gold”. My brother popped the cassette into a classic Chevy vehicular beast of some kind ( I was never a car guy), and we headed up to the mountains.
Halfway across the mighty Mississippi and I stop to listen to the sound check. Beck starts playing “Hell Yes”, and the hairs on my arms tingle, the rush of adrenaline courses through me with the impending anticipation.
I find my seat next to a nice enough family of four, two daughters and their parents. The Memphis skyline lights up as the sun sets.
Let the show begin….
