The concert was pretty awesome, I mean for as old as he is, [Edgar Winter] still can rock and it still sounds really great. I’m not a particularly big fan of his music, but I know a couple of his songs, especially the famous ones. We were down here last week for the Led Zeppelin cover band, and they mentioned that Edgar Winter would be playing next week, so we came back down to see him. My family, friends and I are all big concert-goers; we love music and my friend is a drummer in a band, so we’re always looking for bands to go see live. The best part of the show for me had to be “Frankenstein,” the drummer had an absolutely awesome solo and I love that riff. B Y JO SE PH PE ISE R
