July 19, 2004:

It’s Sunday night, I just got back from the Prince show and it was GREAT! His band was so tight, it goes beyond words. THE TIME opened up! Morris Day was on his game. It was quite the surprise. There were also a few celebrity sightings. First, Walter, “Sally” and I saw Q-Tip. Then we saw:

Rev. Al Sharpton

How funny’s that? Rev. Al is a Prince fan. My photo’s a little out of focus but that’s really him.

I have to get to bed, so I’ll save my diary until Tuesday. On second thought, I just did the usual things up until the concert;

PURPLE RAIN!

A & P, laundry and cleaned the apartment. So, until tomorrow, I leave you with:

Damn, he’s good. This last photo is everyone exiting the concert, everyone at the same time:

Not crowded enough

That’s it! Have a great Monday.

Thanks for the music, Prince!

I voted in the NY primary last night. I brought Iggy with me. I wanted to see if dogs were allowed in the voting booth. Nobody gave me any static. I was going to take a photo of Iggy in the voting booth but they didn’t have any booths! Just a dumb privacy screen. Iggy was proud to be there.

Have a nice day.

Cara and I saw Iggy Pop last night! I’ve been a fan since the 80’s. I discovered Iggy while watching Late Night with David Letterman. I loved his appearances on that show. I never managed to see him live. It was everything I hoped it would be. He’s such a strong performer. And he still has his voice! They played Repo Man! Such a great song.

Everybody stood the whole time and there were hardly any annoying people around us. Except for a girl whose nonstop dancing would have fit in perfectly at a Grateful Dead show. But my attention was on stage. From his stage diving to his wild gyrations, he owned the audience. It was thrilling. The band was amazing too. Now I have to see Queens of the Stone Age! Rumors are this might be his last go around. I can’t believe that’s true. I want to see him again!

Celebrity Chef sighting: Anthony Bourdain. And he stayed for the whole show.
