Chicken Parm, Clowns And American Pie. How I spent My Saturday Night.Posted: March 27, 2014
After a great chicken parm dinner with the Coupongy Correspondents from Cherry Hill, the Fireman and I went to see Judy Collins and Don McLean in concert.
I fully admit I did not know anything about Judy Collins. What I thought I knew was totally wrong.
According to the concert handout, Judy Collins has inspired audiences with sublime vocals, boldly vulnerable songwriting, personal life triumphs, and a firm commitment to social activism. I don’t know about any of that, but what I do know now is that she has an angelic voice that thunders throughout the whole arena. I had no idea.

The second part of the evening was brought to us by Don McLean. I love pie. I love American Pie. I heard people around me comment that they were surprised that Judy Collins opened for Don McLean. I don’t know. Nothing against Judy Collins, but it seemed ok to me. Probably because I love pie.
Also according to the concert handout, Don McLean has over 40 gold and platinum records world-wide and in 2004 was inducted into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame.
As for me, he could have stood on stage and sang American Pie for the whole hour and I would have been fine with that. It was that good.
And, I even spotted my dentist in the crowd getting down with his bad self!
