As a child of the eighties I only knew Berlin from their signature sexy song from the movie Top Gun (“Take My Breath Away”), and as far as Mr. Rick Springfield…well…all I had was “Jessie’s Girl” from 1981. So I literally donned my ripped jeans and OP shirt, and happily accepted this assignment.
Yesterday on my lunch hour, I found out that I was cleared to cover last night’s Matchbox Twenty show at the Palace. For the rest of the day, I was so excited I could barely contain it. It’s hard to review a band you’ve loved since TGIF was still on the air, but I will try to be as fair as I can.
