We're only three days away from the Who's kick-off to their Quadrophenia & More Tour. The 37-date North American road trek, which is the band's first in five years, sees surviving members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend revisiting the Who's 1973 rock opera for the first time in 15 years. The tour opener is set for Thursday night in Sunrise, Florida at Bank Atlantic Center, and then here in Greenville November 8th at the Bi-Lo Center!!
Although the piece was conceived, written, and produced by Townshend, Roger Daltrey has spearheaded the move to bring Quadrophenia alive once again, and has devoted much of the past year to updating the staging of the show, which will feature significant multimedia and video projections
Madonna drew boos and triggered a walkout by several concertgoers after she touted President Barack Obama on her "MDNA Tour" in New Orleans.
The Material Girl asked during Saturday night's performance: "Who's registered to vote?" She added: "I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama." Drawing boos in touting Obama over Republican Mitt Romney, Madonna followed: "Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote."
Madonna is often outspoken. Some Colorado fans, mindful of a mass shooting there, complained she used a fake gun to shoot a masked gunman in a recent concert act in Denver. A Madonna concert in Paris in July drew ire when a video showed a swastika on a politician's forehead.
The Upstate continues to grow and evidence of that is the grand opening of the newest Academy Sports & Outdoors in Easley.

Beyond The Thunder is a documentary film that pays homage to AC/DC and the influence they had on culture around the globe. It reportedly shows the common bond that ties fans together. The latest clip released in Adweek shows how advertising agencies utilized AC/DC's iconic music to give brands their :30 second spot even bigger legs.
The documentary has already won acclaim even though AC/DC has not responded to its release. The producers reportedly seek a partnership and permission with AC/DC's management for a world-wide commercial release.
It was 35 years ago on Saturday (October 20th, 1977), that a plane carrying Lynyrd Skynyrd crashed in a swamp near Gillsburg, Mississippi. At the time, the group was en route to its next show in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The crash took the lives of lead singer Ronnie Van Zant; guitarist Steve Gaines and his sister, backup singer Cassie Gaines; Lynyrd Skynyrd manager Dean Kilpatrick, as well as the plane's two pilots.
All the other members of the band suffered horrific injuries, from which they eventually recovered. Two years later, survivors Gary Rossington and Allen Collins (guitars), Billy Powell (keyboards) and Leon Wilkeson (bass) formed a new group, the Rossington-Collins Band. A decade after the plane crash, the surviving members of Skynyrd regrouped under the legendary name and played a series of dates to mark the anniversary with Johnnie Van Zant, the younger brother of Ronnie Van Zant, stepping in as his permanent replacement.
Recently released was the limited-edition DVD -- Wolfgang's Vault Presents "Day On The Green 1977: Featuring Peter Frampton and Lynyrd Skynyrd." The show, filmed on July 2nd, 1977 was one of several Day on the Green summer festivals presented by the late Bill Graham at Northern California's Oakland Coliseum Stadium. The concert features Skynyrd just three-and-a-half months before the tragic plane crash.
Out now is Lynyrd Skynyrd's latest album, Last Of A Dyin' Breed -- which is their best charting studio set since 1977's Street Survivors collection.

Today is John Lennon's 72nd birthday. By nightfall tonight, hundreds of fans will have made the pilgrimage to Central Park's Strawberry Fields in New York City for a day of remembrance, sing-alongs, and celebrations dedicated to the memory of Lennon. Strawberry Fields, a triangular patch of land dedicated to Lennon by the city of New York and named after the Beatles' 1967 hit, sits directly across the street from the Dakota, Lennon's Manhattan apartment building, where he was gunned down on December 8th, 1980 at the age 40. Today is also Lennon and Yoko Ono's son Sean Lennon's 37th birthday.
Newly released is the Yoko Ono sanctioned book, The John Lennon Letters. The John Lennon Letters was edited by noted Beatles author Hunter Davies and features letters sent by the late Beatle to lovers, friends, family, and fans from every point in his life, and culled from a collection over nearly 300 letters and postcards. Highlights include Lennon's rants to and against the press, Yoko bashers, producer George Martin, and Paul and Linda McCartney.

The type of news that can and will change multiple aspects of my life.
The type of news that has that odd ability to thrill others, while boding negative for you.
Saturday….while everything seemed fine in my quaint, uncomplicated world, I was told…..Krispy Kreme is building a new store……just down from our studios on Woodruff road.
I admit I am a weak man.
Many things tempt me, and this will have disastrous effects on me. I will have to buy new, larger pants, I'll have out of control blood sugar, and contend with those flakes of doughnut glaze in my beard and dotting all my shirts.The list goes on and on.
Friends, it’s a dark day in Mr. Wilsons neighborhood.
