A retraction

Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond my control, the headlining act on July 4th was not Boyz II Men but "John Leg-end", the second-rate soulman. Leg-end greeted the crowd with the words "we gonna do a lot of new ones for you tonight", the classic sign of someone cruising towards disaster. What followed was low on melody, low on groove, but extremely high on sweating and vests.



Boyz II Men played last night instead, when I was up Bear Mountain eating strawberry rhubarb pie.

It's like going to see Metallica and them saying they're going to play the whole of St.Anger. And then you realising you paid for it.
