Yesterday my husband and I woke up with the whole day stretching before us and no plans except for our restaurant dinner. After a leisurely breakfast at Einstein Bros. Bagels (I didn't have any breakfast food in the house), we returned home and decided to watch two concert DVDs that my guitarist had loaned me.
We started with "The Who Live at Royal Albert Hall." The band was great, as were the many musical guests including Eddie Vedder, Bryan Adams and Noel Gallagher.
Once that show ended, we went and had our Thanksgiving buffet dinner, which was delicious and hassle-free.
When we returned home, we watched "Judas Priest Live," the same concert I'd watched on my laptop the previous weekend. I hadn't gotten to see all the encores on the plane, so it was satisfying to watch it to the end. It made me realize that I'm singing some wrong lyrics on "Hell Bent for Leather," and I printed out the correct ones so I can remedy that from here on out.
After that DVD, we peeled ourselves off the couch and went to feed my friend's cat. When we returned, I baked two pumpkin pies and we settled in for one last batch of concert footage: disk 2 of the Led Zeppelin DVD released a couple of years ago.
I didn't make it through the whole DVD - the antibiotics I'm taking give me a headache and I had to bail out and go to bed around 9:45. Still, I had a great time spending the day watching three bands I like. I studied all the frontmen very closely for gestures and postures that I might be able to incorporate into my own live performances.
So how did you spend your day yesterday?
