Billy Joe Royal at the Strand


Above: About 50 years ago.

Below: December 31, 2008


Billy Joe gave a great lively concert. One thing he said that impressed me was something to the effect that when he thinks back on Marietta teenage years he remembers a lot of laughter. That is true.

Tonight during his concert brought back plenty of memories, which I will try to cipher and put in orderly paragraphs in the next day or so.

Happy New Year, Eddie.

Nov. 28th, 1958 was on Friday. So, you are right on with the 50 years.

Can BJ still Rock?

Skip,
I would like to take credit for that estimate but that came from BJR: "50 years ago I played on this same stage."
Yes, in his voice he still rocks. He did Chuck Berry's "Johnny B. Goode" as well as Berry ever did it... along with other oldies but goodies.
But, body-wise I am not sure. At times he seemed out of step with himself.
