Before I get to what we did today, I have to write a little about the concert we saw last night. Peter Noone from Herman's Hermits gave a fantastic concert! Is this man really 67 years old? When he came on stage his high energy was catching. He barely took a breath between songs and was continually doing dance steps. About half way through he began singing songs made famous by other artists....like "Ring of Fire" by Johnny Cash. The amazing part is that he sounded just like Johnny Cash. I even watched his mouth carefully to see if he was just mouthing Cash's song, but no, he was really singing it. Some of the others he sang were, "Bus Stop" by the Hollies, "Ferry Cross the Mersey" by Gerry and the Pacemakers, "I'm Telling You Now" by Freddie and the Dreamers,(and he and the rest of his band actually did 'The Freddie'), and then he did the Mick Jagger strut to "Jumpin' Jack Flash" by the Rolling Stones. He had the whole crowd singing and we all wished the concert would last longer. Here is a short clip of Peter Noone doing the Mick Jagger strut.
After breakfast we saw "Three Days of Peace and Music". This was a presentation about Woodstock. ( I know, most of you could probably have figured that out.) They had short clips of all of the acts at Woodstock and would tell a brief history of certain bands and artists.
After that, we changed into our Flower Power T-Shirts and headed for the pool to join the BeatleBrunch T-shirt Party with Abbey Road on the River Artist, The Jukebox. This place was crowded, s,ome dancing to the music, others swimming and sun bathing. The band was amazing. I almost felt like it was 1966 when I attended a real Beatle concert. The big difference was that I could actually hear the band. No screaming teeny boppers were heard, but lots of singing along and cheering.
It was so hot on deck that I was glad to return to my room to write part of my blog. I don't like to be out in the sun for too long and was grateful that there were some shady spots to get some relief from the sun. Here are a few pictures of the adult flower children re-enacting the 1960s.
This is Tracy. He was kind enough to let me take his picture. He said he thought only a few other guys on the cruise had hair as long as his. Thanks, Tracy!
