Steely Dan Blows!!

Finally, Michael MacDonald was here on Friday. I got to meet him backstage. I didn't realize he is that short. I mean, not short short but about 5ft 9 (I always consider a man short if he is shorter than myself). He smiled constantly but didn't say much. Not that he is arrogant. I think he is the quiet-conservative type. His hair is white but full. He has thick strong hands from playing his keyboards. He made a comment that I'm very tall when I stood next to him to have our pics taken.

I have never seen the guy performed up close. I didn't realize he sings with his eyes closed all the time. He also sat throughout the whole show playing his keyboard. I wondered if he ever stood playing his keyboard when he was younger.

His set was done after about an hour and a half. 20 mins later, a troop of guys with their trumpets started playing a calypso type tune. It sucked!! Then these 2 old guys appeared from the other end of the stage. Some people in the crowd cheered. At first, I thought those two must be Steely and Dan. Then I found out that the band's name is Steely Dan. Shows you how much I cared for the band! By their 3rd song, I was bored out of my skull. I also noticed that some people who came to see Michael MacDonald had left during the switch over to Steely Dan. I couldn't wait to get out of there myself. It was getting cold, I was freezing and the music sucked! Can you blame me? I hope they know how much they blew!! I am only glad that I didn't have to sit through their whole set before I got to see Michael MacDonald. I still can't believe Steely Dan was the headliner band. Headlines, headlines....STEELY DAN BLOWS!!

Michael McDonald was very quiet and personable when he played the venue I was working. I don't think he's all that's just that you're the celebrity that everyone wants to meet, but you don't actually KNOW's kind of a weird place to be.

As for Steely seen them, but I'd take them over Michael McDonald any day. The only reason I got my pic taken with MM was to impress my
