My weekend included a funeral and a legend.

My Grandmother passed away late last year and we laid her to rest on Sunday morning.

The night before, I got to see Ringo Starr and the All-Starr Band at the beautiful Chicago Theater!

As you would guess, the show was amazing!  Ringo was charming, playing the elder statesman of rock & roll; offering invocations of Peace & Love and giving the stage to the incredible band most of the night.

It played like a greatest hits concert featuring "Yellow Submarine", "Rosanna", "Oye Como Va", "Broken Wings", "Bang the Drum All Day", "With a Little Help from My Friends" and many, many more.

Of course, there is a way to tie these things together, it's kind of what we do in my's called a segue.  From


[sey-gwey, seg-wey]

verb (used without object), se·gued, se·gue·ing. continue at once with the next musical section or composition (often used as a musical direction). perform in the manner of the preceding section (used as a musical direction). make a transition from one thing to another smoothly and without interruption: The conversationsegued from travel anecdotes to food.

Rest In Peace, Grandma.

Rock on, Ringo!
