  1. 57 years old and an Illinois fan/student/alum for 40 years, you would think I would have learned my lesson by now. We will be back again next year to lose to a worse seed. It’s what we do.
  2. I’m back and we’re taking the crown this time! I-L-L I-N-I
  3. Yep, pretty amazing all that has happened in our lives since those early days “at the lake”. Our three kids are all out of college. One married. 31 years of marriage for myself and my wife. Many, many Bruce shows...but for the most part I stick to just Chicago and Milwaukee, the days of traveling To shows are behind me. Although, I was able to see Bruce in Paris on a layover for work in July of 2016. It was the infamous show where the power went out. I always wanted to catch a show in Europe and was thrilled I was able to make it work. He even opened that night with Incident on the piano. He could have called it a night right after that song and it would have been worth every penny. Maybe this is a sign to hang out here a bit more. Admittedly, I’m not as obsessed with a lot of Bruce’s work over the last ten years. It was a busy time personally, so maybe that had something to do with it. I did just watch Western Stars on the airplane about a week ago and really enjoyed it. I had never heard most of the songs until now. My concert total did reach 35 with the Paris show, but I have thought each of the past few shows that maybe this one is the last. Not by choice, but more the circumstances of age and such. This freakin’ pandemic certainly hasn’t helped the situation! Again, nice to hear from you and it appears all is well in your world! Look me up on FB if you like. Last name Cetera (like Peter). BTW, I recently found out that he and I are 3rd cousins, once removed...whatever that means! LOL
  4. Hi Nicole, So, we both decided to check out the old neighborhood on the same day after many years away. That is weird. I was back briefly about a month or two ago and sent a quick note to Glory Roads, but it had been a couple of years as my next previous visit. We attended a show together in Philly back in ‘03(?) maybe, with Killer Joe and Mrs Killer Joe. Maybe it was the next tour a few years later...the memory is a struggle at times. Fun times. Great memories, even if the specific year escapes me. I remember you telling a story of how you never could score any good seats to Bruce shows, but seemed to have aced the art of getting good seats to Disney on Ice. LOL. Funny how some things just stick in the brain. That just cracked me up! Your daughter must be into her twenties now. So glad we crossed paths again, even if only virtually.
  5. Where does Ben go to school? Nick is at Iowa State.

  6. Kev: I didn't want you to think I had fallen off the face of the earth. With Ben in college now, and my old email not working, I did not get in the pool. I hope it's a great year! Here's a better email for me: rmccrone@liverpool.k12.ny.us Go Bills .... Go Pack! (Both look good!) :)

  7. Philly was alot of fun. I was at the Saturday night show and had a great stay at the Mr and Mrs Killer Joe B & B. Ah... the good old days of real Bruce shows with a real band!
  8. I was just getting depressed over the lack of enthusiasm here in Chicago for tomorrow's show and then I read your awesome story. A moment you'll never forget.
