My friend Gerry’s wedding band is incredible.
They were playing a mutual friend’s wedding and he comes up to me at the cocktail hour and says “Hey you wanna sing some somethin later?” I said sure. Though I was kinda scared. Singing at somebody’s wedding is nerve wracking man!! I’ve done it before, but I dunno. Stakes are high.
He says “How about Summer of 69.” I said OK. This was not my first dalliance with Bryan Adams. I can’t stand it when people dismiss him out of hand. This song is amazing. It’s so honest. Bryan doesn’t even realize how honest it is.
Anyway, I tried to keep it classy. I was thinking, how would Sinatra rock this? I don’t think he woulda done the Springsteen nose-to-nose move at the end of the clip there, but I sure am glad I did. Thanks Ger.
