The other night Andrew and I had a voicemail from a friend who moved to San Francisco, he was caling to tell us he was off to see a Neil Diamond cover band that night and was thinking of us. That's right, when you think of Mary and Andrew, please think "Neil Diamond Cover Band."
Sometime back in 2001 we had taken our friend to see Hot August Knights, aka "The World's Most Dangerous Neil Diamond Tribute Band." It was the first and only time I've seen them but they're somewhat of a fixture in the Atlanta music scene. Hard to describe but the singer is totally Neil Diamond incarnate, only in a more rocking kinda way. That is, if you can rock in a sequinned shirt and tight-fitting slacks.
I was thinking, hey that was really fun, we should try to see them again. And what luck, they're playing this Saturday night.
Gotta go brush up on the lyrics to "I am, I Said", so I'll be able to sing along.......
