The Rock 'n Roll Time Machine
Published on July 1, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about my great new invention, the Rock 'n Roll Time Machine.

Here's an excerpt:

"A couple of weeks ago the New England Sports Fan Friend and I came up with a terrific invention: The Rock ‘n Roll Time Machine.

This time machine has one purpose: It permits the user to travel back in time to attend the rock concert of their choice. So if you’re like me, and you wish you could have seen some of the greatest bands in rock and roll history when they were actually in their prime, the Rock ‘n Roll Time Machine can make your dreams come true. Of course, the New England Sports Fan Friend and I discussed which band we’d most like to travel back in time to see.

For the most part, we were in agreement: The band we’d most like to see is Led Zeppelin. Now, Led Zeppelin is not my favorite band, although every time I listen to them or hear them on the radio I’m impressed by how great they sound. They never sound dated to me, and if I didn’t know anything about them and had never heard them before I’d probably think they were some terrific new artist, taking the world by storm. Anyway, research suggests that Led Zeppelin’s 1972 North American Tour would be a great tour to catch; the band played songs from the as-yet-to-be released album “Houses of the Holy,” as well as now-classic songs such as 'Stairway to Heaven,' 'Black Dog' and 'Rock and Roll.'"

I must say, I'd want to see Buddy Holly's last tour.

Failing that, one of his concerts with the original Crickets, when they were being called back for encore after encore on the old Allan Freed rock n roll package tours.
