A few years ago (I guess more than few as per the below vid it was 2013) I caught a n HBO special with Chicago in concert.  I remarked to my wife that "damn, these guys have SO MANY awesome jams.  Sure enough a couple of months later they announce a concert at The Greek Theater (an unbelievable place to see a show, BTW).  What a great show.  And they played every song just like it was recorded, which personally I like, as opposed to bands that really depart from the original.

As an aside, halfway through the show they stop and out walks Al Pacino.  They are filming a scene for his upcoming film "Imagine" about some aging rock star.  They do a number and use the fans in the crowd as extras.  I'm in there somewhere as we were lower section (of course).  

They also had a charity thing where the highest bidder got to sing a song with the band.  The highest bidder was Joe "Fat Tony" Montegna.  I forget the song he did but he was pretty good.

I took my wife on our first date to Broken Spoke 19 years ago last week.  Thanks to Jeff Hughes, we two-stepped to G-n-R, The Cure, and AC/DC.

OK, I was gonna snark something about "why the hell was Monte Montgomery on Daryl's House?" but I gave it a listen and I have to say it's nice to see a guy get to play with his hero.  I'm no fan of MM's music but that was cool.  Plus, T-Bone Wolk (RIP).

Speaking of girls that can sing and "unholly" things...

Dang.  That caused actual goosebumps, and not just because of her looks.

Yeah, the voice causes goosebumps. 

The looks cause another kind of "bump".

Those bare feet are the coups de gras for me.

Every dude in that outfit is a stone cold instrumental and vocal killer, but that drummer is on his own planet of awesomeness.

A fucking beast!

I have no idea who this girl is, though I’m guessing I probably should. Regardless, damn....

Yes, you should.  Probably the sexiest voice anywhere these days imo.

It's funny, you name any big time female vocal voice today on the radio and none hold a candle to this gal.

Not one.

Uh, tap the brakes there.  I try not to get into the Haley discussions because I tend to think of her as a pretty cartoonish singer, but in my opinion there are many female vocalists on the radio these days who can school her.  Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, Elle King, Kacey Musgraves, the Highwomen crowd (Maren Morris & Brandi Carlisle in particular), and Adele (if she still counts) come to mind.

I find the whole Postmodern Jukebox movement nothing but kitschy elevator music.  Of course, nobody asked me, but surly . . .

Maybe it’s because I don’t know anything about her but that voice doesn’t seem cartoonish to me. Sounds very legit in my book.

I'm probably jaded because of her path to whatever fame she's achieved . . . American Idol . . . but I just don't feel like there's any depth to her singing.

That said, lots of people lover her, and opinions, assholes, etc.

She’s technically better than anyone in Jimmy’s list not named Adele.

Postmodern Jukebox gave her a platform, but the voice stands on its own irrespective of that.

Cartoonish?  I’ll agree to that on the PMJ stuff as it’s somewhat by design, but go back and listen to her doing Can’t Find My Way Home.  It’s the exact opposite of cartoonish.

Soulfoul, ya, but certainly not cartoonish.

Anyway, it’s all just taste and opinion in the end.

So, for me, she’s as sexy and listenable as they come with a very small group of peers.

For me.

See, I knew nothing of her path/story.  Just heard the voice and was hooked.

Yeah, and her looks don't hurt either.  She's nobody's 10 but she definitely cuts a sexy vibe.

We'll just have to disagree there.  I mean, I don't like Ariana's music, but for pity's sake, she is a technical wizard.  Same goes for Brandi and Gaga.
