April 2017 – #Atozchallenge – On to O

O is for “Old Time Rock and Roll” by Bob Seger.

I’m just a little behind here but definitely not gonna stress or rush through these layouts.  This is another one where I’m using a song title to fill the letter rather than the name of the band.  

I’d say almost everyone knows this song, made even more well-known by Tom Cruise in Risky Business.  We’ve seen Bob Seger twice now and I’ve heard that he may not tour anymore so I’m glad we did.  The first time we saw him was in December of 2011.  That night was at Oakland Arena and we actually had a celebrity sighting in the Club Bar.  Ross Valory of Journey was there and he graciously came and said hello to me after my husband went and asked him to.  I wrote about that last November.  You can read that here.  

The next time we saw Bob Seger was in March 2015.  He had just come out with his new album, Ride Out, and we went with some friends to San Jose SAP Center.  I’m not finished with the whole concert but here are the first few pages:

For the page on the right I used a 3-D embellishment of a motorcycle from the Debbi Moore collection, Cards for Men Vintage Transport CD.  

I think it really adds something to the page.

We had pretty good seats, in the 16th row so I was able to get some really good shots.
I used this punch by EK Success to make a border to match the papers I was using.  

You can see that on the page on the left below.  On the right is the saxophone player in the band, Alto Reed.  I think that is such a cool name for a sax player, don’t you?  When he starts the song “Turn the Page” with the sax it gives me chills and his solo on Old Time Rock and Roll is really good too.  I can’t get over how big the sax is in the middle picture.   
So, there’s my “O.”  I’m going to try to get P and Q done this weekend and then I won’t be so far behind.  

How about you?  Keeping up?  Have you seen Bob Seger?  Like the sax?  Love to hear!

    You’re keeping up with the challenge nicely. Never seen Bob Seger in concert, but you probably already figured out that I’d say that! Seems like it’s lucky that you did, considering…
