The real greatest concert
The Stones are coming to town in the "top concert ever in Puerto Rico". But even though I'm going, I'm not that excited. Maybe because in September I went to Miami to see Paul McCartney. Nothing can beat that concert experience. It was over 30 songs, some of the greatest rock songs ever. He sang "Penny Lane", "Helter Skelter", "Hey Jude", "I will" and over 20 Beatle songs. The "Hey Jude" sing along has to be the most amazing concert moment of my life. You are watching Paul, someone who changed the world. The genius behind so much music and there you are singing along with him.
I guess my lack of real excitement has to do that, when you're my age, you're either a Beatle person or a Stones person. You may like both, but you only feel real love for one of them. And I am a Beatle person, I love the optimism, the magic. They were the greatest rock group ever. Ever.
