Waking up to a very cool morning in Montana with frost on the windshield, we knew we had a long drive towards Denver. We headed down through Idaho and into Wyoming and up and over the very steep pass into the ski resort town of Jackson Hole. As we were on our way down the pass the air conditioning stopped …

Rock n Roller 17: Metallica at the Rose Bowl

Our trip to Los Angeles was really for one thing. To see Metallica at the infamous Rose Bowl. It had been a concert I have been thinking about almost every single day when they played their first show of the tour last year at the new Minnesota Vikings stadium. I said to Michele then, “no matter where they go we …

The Rock n Roller 17 tour comes to a raucous end when we attended the Foo Fighters concert in Salt Lake City. As many of my rabid readers may know by now, Foo is my wife, Michele’s favorite band and it was an early Christmas gift to go to this show. We flew in on Monday night after we both had …
