Forgive the out of place review... But I have to say that on top of a rockin' show with amazing energy- That great energy flowed out of the Coliseum, down the street, around the corner and into the Howard Johnson hotel. Not only did they keep the hotel bar open for a an extra hour or two. They also let us chill out in the common area by the bar with no questions or hassles. A gentleman with his guitar in one hand and his lady by his side were singing and playing tunes; an older gentleman was tending to his beautiful lady who may have had a bit too much too fast; people were mingling, making friends and memories. The kind security guard would occasionally walk by with a genuine smile to say hello or to politely ask us to quite down, but let us be until the wee hours of the morning (about 4 or so). This my friends, was a great stay. It was like sitting on top of hillside out in WV after the music had stopped, but the people had not.
This family has opened my eyes to so much in the world. For that, I am and will remain forever grateful.
My freedoms in the fire, i want to take me higher....free my soul
