Making Love Out of Nothing at All

I had the pleasure of attending the Air Supply concert tonight at the new theater at the River Rock Casino Resort (same company where I work). Can you believe it's been 30 years since they first got together in Australia? That makes 1975, only 1 year younger than a certain other group that we all know and love.

While Russell Hitchcock doesn't have the lungs that he used to, he and Graham Russell still put together a fabulous show. When they sang "Here I Am", the two of them went up the aisles and shook hands with the crowd. One lucky girl even managed to plant her lips on Russell's.

Girls were still swooning and yelling "I love you Russell" (and even a few "I love you Graham"'s) after all these years. It was like I travelled back to my teenage years. The crowd was in a party mood and near the end about a quarter of the audience (about 1000 or so) made their way to the edge of the stage to shake their hands. I had a great time. You Aussies sure know how to have a good time.
