Ok, so I've built a Bruce time travelling DeLorean. Thank you Dr Emmett Brown for your proprietary intellectual property.
(Actually, I've done nothing of the sort, I'm just seeing if Fox News would report someone has created a Bruce time machine).
Nevertheless, imagine if one of us did create a Bruce time machine? Where (or, more precisely, when) would you go?
For me, number one is a no brainer. LA 1981, straight to the Veterans show. For me, the ultimate moment as a Bruce fan.
After that, some really weird and funny thoughts came into my head. Perhaps Makers Mark and 25 years of marriage (plus children) is messing with my cognitive functionality. But my immediate second thought was going to New York on about 5th November 2009, enjoying some sightseeing for two days, before hitting the Garden for the full album WIESS and River double.
Then, in a desperate search to find what I'm missing, landing in St Louis 2008 for that show to try and understand what the hell was in the air that night which never translated to a recording I still find to be 'meh, it's OK, but what's the big deal?' Sonething is seriously missing between the reputation of that show and how it sounds on tape, and I need to find out what the hell it is. Hopefully I don't get struck by lightning trying...
