Highlights: I legitimately cannot limit my highlights to a few tracks. The whole album from start to finish is PHENOMENAL and I am not just saying that because Lita is my favorite! This is my favorite album that has been released since Hole's Celebrity Skin from 1998, and a lot of great stuff has come out since 1998 so that is saying A LOT. I may even go as far saying that this could be her best album. Seriously, if you are a fan of rock music, check this album out!!!

Heart Concert Review - 11/2/2012


To see more photos click here.

Well, on Friday, November 2nd, 2012, I saw Heart at the St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, FL, completing my goal of seeing the JessieLou Holy Trinity live (I saw Lita Ford in October and Pat Benatar in June 2009). It was a great show and Ann and Nancy were amazing and flawless as usual, but you know, I saw Lita at the trashiest venue, Rush in a huge arena with over 20,000 people, and when I saw Kelly Clarkson, I was sitting in front of a group of drunk women, so it says a lot when I tell you that last Friday, THE FREAKS WERE OUT!

Before I get into the concert itself, I will explain how I got into Heart to begin with. I have heard their 80’s hits like “These Dreams”, “Alone”, “What About Love”, etc. on the radio when I was a kid but I didn't know who sang them until years later (this was also the case with a lot of Journey and Steve Winwood hits). When I started listening to American Top 40 Flashback: The 80’s back in 2006, I recognized a lot of the Heart songs that came on, also not to mention before that I recognized a lot of their songs performed on American Idol (remember Carrie Underwood’s version of “Alone”?), plus someone on M4B Charts Central had a show on the now-defunct radio station Variety FM 104 called the Back When Top 10, where the first hour he would play the top 10 from a year in the 80’s and the second hour a year in the 90’s. He played a lot of Heart songs that I liked very much. However, it wasn't until the spring of 2007 when I went to the sadly defunct Virgin Megastore in Orlando, FL, when I decided to buy Heart’s Greatest Hits 1985-1995 album. When I came home, I listened to it from start to finish and I was IN LOVE. Then I went back and listened to all of their albums and I loved almost all of them and really the rest is history.

The amphitheater itself was very nice; I did not get a shirt, as I already own a vintage Heart concert tee from their 1981 tour. I got it at St. Mark’s Place in NYC. And that folks is the “JessieLou Brags” segment of this review.

This venue was smaller than the venue where I saw Rush back in 2010, but there still was a lot of people, and OF COURSE I had to be seated next to the most obnoxious person in the venue. It wasn't a big deal to me as I would tolerate a Wal-Mart-loving Prince fan for my favorite artists, but this person was still nuts. I will explain in further detail about this person later on in the review. By the way, my seats ruled!



The opening act was Shawn Colvin, who smashed up the charts in 1997 with a GREAT song that I grew up with – “Sunny Came Home”. She is very talented and I totally respect her as an artist. With that said, she was boring. It’s nothing against her but her non-“Sunny Came Home” songs aren’t my kind of music.


Now it’s show time! About 45 minutes later, Heart came on and opened with one of their most recent singles, “Fanatic”. It was AWESOME! After that they performed their 1978 single, “Heartless” as well as, much to my surprise, “What About Love”! Considering how that's one of my top five all-time favorite Heart songs, this was a VERY pleasant surprise. I've watched a lot of Heart concerts on TV since I really started getting into their music back in 2007, and they have NEVER done any of their 80’s songs except for the occasional “Alone” or “These Dreams”. It was a stripped down version, which was great, but I was hoping for the 80’s arena rock-like sound. Their 1985 self-titled album is one of my all time favorites and it has spoiled me a bit. After this they performed two more new tracks – my favorite song off their new album, Fanatic, called “Mashallah”, and “59 Crunch”.

Now let’s get back to the lady I was sitting next to. At one point she got up to get a drink, and when Heart performed “Even It Up”, she came back DRUNK, holding a drink in her hand screaming and not only almost bumped into me to the point where I could've gotten hurt, but she spilled some of her drink in my hair! NOT. COOL. Again, I don't mind having to deal with obnoxious people for my favorite artists, but don't interfere me when I'm trying to watch them! GOD.

Next they performed one of my favorite 70’s-era songs from them, “Straight On”, as well as “Dog & Butterfly”, another Fanatic track, “Walkin’ Good”, and then one of my favorite performances of the night is when they performed “These Dreams”! Everyone talks about what a fantastic vocalist Ann Wilson is and I agree 110%; she is one of my all-time favorite vocalists, but Nancy Wilson is an amazing singer in her own right as well. I always loved her vocals on “These Dreams” and other Heart songs she sang vocals on such as “There’s The Girl”, “Will You Be There (In The Morning)”, and “Stranded”.

Next they performed one of the greatest songs ever made, “Alone”, and I took video of it but the quality isn't very good as it was taken on my iPod touch.




Good news: the next song they did was “Dear Old America” and I finally figured out how to take video with my regular camera during this performance! Bad news: I ended up deleting it accidentally after the show. MEH.

Next they performed arguably their three biggest classic rock staples – “Crazy On You”, “Barracuda”, and “Magic Man”. When they performed those songs, it should come as no surprise that the crowd went CRAZY. I took video of “Barracuda” as shown below; fortunately clumsy me didn’t delete this one!



They wrapped up this AWESOME show with a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Black Dog”, which was interesting as Lita also closed her show with a cover (Steppenwolf’s “Born To Be Wild”). I know I’m going to piss off A LOT of people when I say this but I could never really get into Zeppelin. I respect them and I know they’ve influenced some of my favorite artists such as Pearl Jam, Tori Amos, and of course Heart, but I just couldn’t get into them. With that said, I thought their cover ruled!

Overall, it was an awesome night and I’d totally see them again. However, as I said in my Kelly Clarkson review, I want to see all of my other favorites before I see anyone a second time.

Lita Ford Concert Review - 10/20/2012


To see more pictures from the concert, click here.

You hear that sound? That is the sound of I, me, JessieLou, the greatest radio DJ in the world, having THE GREATEST NIGHT OF HER LIFE at Lita Ford's free concert at Biketoberfest in Destination Daytona (Ormond, FL) on October 20th, 2012.

For those who do not know or remember the story as to how I got into Lita's music to begin with, I was first introduced to her in October 2006 when I heard her song, “Kiss Me Deadly” on an American Top 40 w/ Casey Kasem countdown show. Not gonna lie, when I first heard it I thought it was just okay. But a couple months later (June 2007), I was reading about The Runaways (I've always been a Joan Jett fan), and I read that Lita Ford was also a member of the band so it made me curious to check out some of her other music. I downloaded some songs of hers – “Cherry Red” (1990), “Shot Of Poison” (1991), “Black Widow” (1991), “Dressed To Kill” (1984), and her cover of Alice Cooper's “Only Women Bleed” (1990), and I was hooked. However, it wasn't until about a month later when I started going downright PSYCHO over her. Whenever I work out I always have Music Choice on, and one day before I started my workout I put on the Arena Rock (now Retro Rock) station and they were playing her 1984 single, “Gotta Let Go”. I caught like the last minute of it and I was thinking to myself, “OMG I need to download this onto my computer PRONTO!” I remember throughout that whole workout session I couldn't get that song out of my head and once I was done I rushed back onto my computer and downloaded it… pronto. The thing is though, I don't want to get into too much detail about it but 2007 was a pretty difficult year for me, and in the 2007-2008 school year I temporarily transferred to a different, smaller school where I was bullied by almost every other student that attended and Lita's music was always there for me to help me feel better. So yeah, that is why her music has such a dear place in my heart. There are a lot of musicians who mean a lot to me, like Alanis and Madonna, both of whom I've pretty much been a fan of since I was in diapers, so the fact that Lita is my #1 artist says A LOT. Oh, and for the record, I eventually grew to LOVE “Kiss Me Deadly”.

I got to the venue super early which I wanted to as I wanted to get really close to the stage, although it was a bit difficult because even though I was VERY close, I'm also really short (5'2 to be specific). The show started at 9:00PM and when Lita came out and started performing her cover of Elton John's "The Bitch Is Back", I was blown away. I was finally seeing my queen. She was right in front of me being all flawless and queen-like. It was seriously a dream come true for me. Not to mention she looked beautiful as always! Oh and yes, I was singing along to EVERY SINGLE SONG. I never realized it until last night but I actually know the entire lyrics to almost all of her songs.

The next song she did was "Hungry" off my all-time favorite Lita album, 1990's Stiletto, and I was still being blown away and struggling to take pictures because of my height. After “Hungry”, she did her first mic break (I think that's what they call it?), and she just seemed so sweet and you could just tell she enjoyed being there. She was funny too! At one point she was drinking a coffee and jokingly said it was a cocktail. Then she went into one of the new tracks, “Relentless”. This was the only song I took video of because I forgot how to take video on my camera, this video was actually taken on my iPod Touch.




I thought it was extremely cool that the guitars she was playing were the EXACT SAME GUITARS she played in her older videos and concert footage. The red guitar with her name on it was the exact one in videos like “Kiss Me Deadly” and “Back To The Cave”. Next, she performed my 14-week #1 smash, “Living Like A Runaway”, and during that performance, there was this couple in front of me and I guess they saw how I was struggling to take good pictures because of my height, but they were nice enough to let me go in front of them so I can be even CLOSER to my queen! From this point on I had no problem taking pictures so YAY ME!

From this point on I don't remember the exact order of the setlist but I remember every song she played – she performed “Gotta Let Go” (I was REALLLY happy when she performed this!), “Back To The Cave” (which she was singing as “Back To Daytona”, I thought that was cute lol), “Out For Blood” (her debut single!), and two album tracks that I was very surprised she performed – “Under The Gun” and “Dancin' On The Edge”. At one point during the concert she was throwing guitar picks to the crowd and I was trying to get one SO badly but I didn't, meh. HOWEVER, during “Dancin' On The Edge”, I am pretty positive that she was POINTING RIGHT AT ME!! OMG SHE SAW ME SING HER SONGS AHHHH. I was trying to keep this review as professional as possible and I know I'm not doing a good job at that, LOL.

I really felt like a hardcore fan at this show because when she introduced “Devil In My Head”, she said, “this next song goes like this” and she started singing the chorus in acapella form and I knew right away what song it was and I was singing along right with her! “Devil” is my favorite song on Living Like A Runaway and was definitely one of my favorite performances of the night! Speaking of the new album, she also performed the track “Hate”, and when she introduced it she said, “I don't know if you guys have heard my new album…” and I shouted out, “IT'S AMAZING!” After she performed the Lemmy-penned “Can't Catch Me”, she said that now all the teenagers in the audience are going to go on Twitter and write, “who the fuck is Lemmy?” which was funny but SO true! I'm sure it happened considering that teenagers on Twitter have also asked who Paul McCartney is and why Gwen Stefani is in a band now. DID I ALSO MENTION SHE POINTED RIGHT AT ME?!?!?!

The next song she did was none other than my favorite song of all-time, "Close My Eyes Forever". She sang both her and Ozzy's parts but she asked the audience for some help as well and it was fun! She ended the show with "Kiss Me Deadly" and a cover of Steppenwolf's "Born To Be Wild".

In conclusion, not only was that the greatest concert I have ever been to, but it was also the greatest night of my life. Her vocals and guitar work were flawless, epic, and legendary as always because she is QUEEN LITA FORD. She put on such an amazing show and words cannot explain how happy that whole experience made me. I rate the show an A+++++++++++++
