You guys knew it was coming.
First, the new album. It’s a 10.
Second, the HBO special miniseries, named after the album, “Sonic Highways“. Nailing it. In fact, the last time we had my husband’s family over, I left an episode on in our den for those who didn’t want to get carried away by mosquitos in our backyard. I walked inside to see 3/4 of the family crowded in watching the Washington, D.C. episode in silent attention. It was a sight to behold.
Third, the solo set from Dave Grohl at #theConcertforValor on HBO (read about it here). It renewed my adoration; I kid you not. There are a lot of things I could say about this concert, like how it touched my cold, cold heart. The stories they told between sets? I mean, wow. AND THEN, Zac Brown brings DG out and they do Fortunate Son. Mic drop. Not to mention the amazing other sets…I would be lying if I said I wasn’t glued to the entire thing, with tears here and there, in total admiration for the cause. Watching this event tonight inspired me to be a little more thankful with the time I have on my hands.
UPDATE: Fourth. I don’t know how I failed to mention the Foo Fighters radio on SiriusXM channel 34. I can’t get enough.
