Saw tool twice last month. Metallica coming up this Sunday.

What Tool is touring?  Are they ever releasing a new album?

Supposedly yes to a new album.

Didn't hear any new songs in either of the concerts I saw in Montreal or Toronto. Both shows were identical except for maybe 1 track. They sounded great.

 I still remember when they released 10,000 Days..I had one child that was under 6 months old.  Now I have 3 kids ages 11, 9 and 5.

I think I first saw Tool live 26 years ago.

I saw The Arcade Fire in Belfast a couple of months ago, first I'd seen them in about a decade. They were really good and the gig was fantastic.

Was also one of the most chilled out crowds I've seen at a gig in a long time which helped. Everyone just there to relax and enjoy the music. A lot of concerts here seem to attract a load of annoying drunk teenagers (or else I'm just getting old)
I Saw Jay McClement Score.

RIP Juliette Cavazzi.

She was 'Canada's sweetheart" back in the 1950' & '60s and had her own variety show called The Juliette Show.  She was simply known to Canadians as Juliette.

I remember having heard of her and had seen on tv in the '70s and early '80s.  It wasn't until I entered the Musicfest Canada competition in 1982 that I had met her in person.

She was one of many well-known Canadians from the field of music on the judging panel for this competition, and I clearly recall Juliette clapping & smiling when I was playing in front of the panel.

The CBC studios on Shuter St. In Toronto's Cabbagetown area was where competitors (from Ontario) showcased their talents.  Other Canadians from across the provinces had their own Musicfest judging panel & place.

I played on a Steinway grand piano, the first time I had ever layed my fingers on such a piano -- I was more familiar  with uprights and baby grands -- and became slightly apprehensive and perhaps a little nervous at the thought of having to play this grand piano.  Once I began my 10 minute repertoire (the slotted time given to everyone), I was put at ease conquering this grand behemoth of a musical instrument.  It was quite possibly the best-sounding piano ever, (Steinway & Sons has long had a reputation for manufacturing the best concert grands), and I've sampled many a different piano name.  My personal favourite for baby grands was the Wagner piano back in those days.

After I finished my presentation, as I got set to leave, Juliette came up to me and uttered some words of praise and she had a smile that was unforgettable.  No wonder people liked her.  She wore it well.

(For the record, I did not win the Musicfest Canada competition but nevertheless, it was a wonderful experience both in terms of preparation and learning.  I had chosen to play under the category of "Pop Classics", a combination of popular and some classical pieces).

This was my fond memory of Juliette.  Thank you for your kindness, your smile, and your graciousness.   That, in a nutshell, was vintage Juliette.

I know all about her because of my daughters.  Seems like a down to earth kid, great achievements for her.

Johnny Mathis was playing Phoenix last night, my wife is crazy for him so using the Happy Wife Happy Life motto, I went along for the ride.  Thinking this guy is 82, how can he sing anymore, I didn't expect much. Boy was I surprised, not only is he moving well and looking great, his singing was as good as back when I heard Chances Are back in the 60's.  Every song was a story and his voice was strong and clear.  During his break he had a Canadian comedian knock the house down.  One of the best evenings of my life. If Johnny is showing up in your town, don't say, he is to old or what a fossil.  I am shocked to say, his show last night was better than Rod Stewart in Vegas a few years back. Rod mailed it in where Johnny was preaching the love stuff.

469+ songs!!  All-Canadian, too.  The Blue Jays reliever John Axford (who is Canadian) has a vast array of Canadiana. He posted this awhile ago (on Canada Day weekend):

My new band has an album coming out in November, and we filmed an actual music video for it recently.  It was a lot of fun - if you like punk/hardcore/weird music, this might be up your alley:
