Late night TO with Mike Mills, Robert McDuffie and Lots of Friends -2016

It was a very fun and musical night in downtown Toronto at the stately Roy Thomson Hall as Mike Mills premiered his Concerto for Rock Band, Violin and String Orchestra with the help of his old friend, the magnificent Robert McDuffie, plus his newly constituted band of Athens friends and pros William Tonks, Patrick Ferguson and John Neff, and of course a host of new friends, the revered conductor Peter Oundjian and members of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.

August 11, 1995: Third Time’s the Charm in Prague

August 11, 1995: It was twenty years ago today: the third time really was a charm. After postponements occasioned by Bill’s brain surgery in March and Mike’s gut surgery in July, R.E.M. FINALLY got to play their show in Prague (although Michael was not exactly feeling fine during the show); one of my favorite photographs at REMHQ is the one of Michael leafleting in Prague trying to get the word out we really are in Prague to play a show
