Sheryl Crow in Houston TONIGHT

If you are at the Sheryl Crow concert in the Woodlands tonight, then we each have an invitation to her next stop in Austin, by Crow herself. During "Are You Strong Enough To Be My Man," she said, well sang, about a vacant bunk on her tour bus that's open to another welcome party & I believe her. She's on the road, performing hits from her current album "100 Miles from Memphis." She's single, & a true talent, so I believe if she wants company, she'll get it. Tonight, she covered Terrence Trent Darby's "Sign Your Name", which was a miss. Her better cover is the Michael Jackson hit "I Want You Back." Her voice actually sounded more like an impersonation of Jackson, but a respectable tribute nonetheless. Crow, not to be mistaken for some cover girl is forging ahead after some difficult intervals in her life. After being struck by a big break up with world's most famous cyclist and health problems, also currently behind her, she is grooving ahead, with no insecurities to speak of. In fact, she thinks "EVERY girl should have her own band." She is expected to release a second volume of her current album next spring, but no word on another tour to promote it. Overall, Crow is great live, highlighting her instrumental talent on guitar then later on piano. She commented on our hot Houston weather, sealed in leggings, 5" heels, & a long free flowing square based halter.

Something I liked a lot was that she danced a lot too. Though obviously not trained in footwork, she was reminiscent of a hippy Janis Joplin/J.J. (my friend) hybrid. Also, just a note about iPhone4 and blogger.com. Blogger won't allow at least me, to upload pictures from my iPhone4 to blogger.com.
