Maroon 5 (featuring Rozzi Crane) - Wake Up Call
Recorded live in Sunrise, Florida, March 29, 2013.

Oh, alright, I’ll post this one. I wasn’t going to, for a couple of reasons, even though it’s one of Maroon 5’s best songs. First, I had to dodge a lot of people in front of me and couldn’t get a good fix on James Valentine during his solo, and second, this is a perfect example of a performance that is great, but doesn’t fit the lyrics. This is a song about a guy who catches his girlfriend in bed with another man, and in a dark comedy kind of way, shoots him dead and then goes, “whoops” (I’m paraphrasing). Not the kind of thing you’d expect to see performed as a bouncy duet with audience participation. I would like to have seen something with a bit more of an edge, but I guess that wasn’t the order of the evening. Whatever. It’s not like I didn’t get my money’s worth at that show. I’m still shaking the confetti out of my underwear.

Maroon 5 - She Will Be Loved
Recorded live in Sunrise, Florida, March 29, 2013.

To be honest, this is one of my least favorite songs by Maroon 5, but thanks to a huge suspension bridge that descended from the ceiling for the band’s encore, suddenly Adam Levine and the lovely James Valentine were right up in my face, and I was no longer bummed about having spent most of the show sitting halfway across the arena behind the world’s tallest person. Sometimes life doesn’t suck.

Maroon 5 - Harder to Breathe (excerpt)

A little teaser of the photos & videos I’ll be posting in the next couple of days. Yep, I was close enough to read the tattoos.

On my way to see this cutie, and that other guy too - Adam something? ;-)

Can we make today Beautiful Guitarist Day? Just because?

Can I just say thank you to the lovely and talented James Valentine from Maroon 5 for mentioning My Morning Jacket in a tweet several months ago? If it hadn’t been for that, I might not have seen MMJ in concert this weekend and been moved almost to tears by one of Carl Broemel’s guitar solos.
