The chance of a lifetime
Dave Matthew Band fans, listen up!
Yours truly got a rare one-on-one interview with band violinist Boyd Tinsley yesterday. Despite feeling dizzy from adrenaline when Boyd said hello, (DMB is a GOD in my music world) I managed to get off a few questions that sounded something like English.
You can read my interview at the Poughkeepsie Journal Web site . BTW, Boyd doesn't have a gym in his tour bus. But he does have a gym on a trailer that is part of the tour vehicle entourage. Boyd said, he used to have to go find a gym before gigs, and sometimes he'd be late for the concert, which was stressful on the band. That explains those bulging biceps!
Make sure you check back tonight to read my live updates at PoughkeepsieJournal.com. The band's publicist said it was a go for press passes to the West Point concert with very very limited public tickets. It's nearly 10 hours until Randolph and the Family Band open, yet I feel like doing a cartwheel right now, in the middle of a bunch of my fellow reporters and editors. I just might before the afternoon is over!
oooh, I hope they play Cornbread tonight. That song is so sweeeet!
But you ain't ever had my cornbread
A little bit of heaven, and a little bit of uh uh
Cut it down the middle
Open wide and jump right in
