The Brain Strain


A Little...ok A Lot Less Queen

I still get goosebumps.  Remembering the first time I saw Aretha in concert.  Like a kid on Christmas eve, anxiously awaiting the evening.  I'd been a long time fan.  I was finally seeing her sing live.  And she didn't disappoint.   There was a time, back in the day, when I was in Detroit, and so was she because of her issues with flying, and she appeared in concerts lots.  And I saw them all.  She had her moments.  Would she get upset on stage?  Would she vocalize her displeasure with whatever she thought was wrong with the sound?  Probably.  But she never failed to deliver.  Never failed to knock it out of the park.  Her singing the song Angel, with her sister Carolyn, helped me think positively after a bad relationship, but enough about me.  Aretha IS the Queen.

Today (the 25th) is Aretha's Birthday.  With her recent weight loss, no matter how she did it, may cake be on the menu today.  Happy Birthday, Queen.  Long live the Queen.
