wine by the color

My sister-in-law and I took a little road trip Friday to the land of chocolate to see Springsteen and the E Street Band. Although it's always a little different to see Springsteen outside the confines of Jersey, it was an outstanding outing. The weather was perfect - perhaps the nicest night we've had all year. We were treated to a solid setlist and amused ourselves people watching (central PA, with its hoopies, ranks just below NYC and Disney World in terms of people watching as a spectator sport.

But the highlight of the evening came from the drum set, as Max Weinberg's 18-year-old son Jay filled in for his father and was simply incredible. We saw him guest-drum during "Born to Run" in the Meadowlands last summer, which was amazing, but to watch him rock out for the whole show was really terrific. Springsteen really seemed to enjoy having him behind the drums and commented on his skills repeatedly.

Eighteen years old. Incredible. His "what I did on my summer vacation" report should be quite a read.
