Jackson Browne

Saw Jackson Browne last night at Wolf Trap.  Talked to a couple people who claimed to have been at Merriweather in 1977 when he recorded Load Out/Stay.  Reminded me that thru the years it sure seems like I have encountered a lot of folks who claim that they were at that particular concert.  Merriweather only held about 10,000 or so people back then before they added dirt to create a slope and now seat 19,000 people.  By my count I got to be getting near having met most of the 10,000 who were there for Jackson's historic performance.  (Here's an interesting backstory as to how JB and his band came to record that song that night at Merriwether (click here.)

And this great tribute to Jackson from the Boss:
