How can you top Chihuly?
If you are my sons, it's the Experience Music Project. "Our favorite things. Music and Sci-Fi together in the same building." And in their opinion, the best gift shop ever! You can't top that!
Or maybe, you can...but that's another post!
It is said that the roof of the building is supposed to look like a smashed stratocaster. My two-man team of experts did not see the resemblance.
Here are some NOW and THEN parallels. August 2012...
And back to August 2004... Oh my, Frank's almost in the same spot and I only just noticed that!
There was Hendrix (no pictures in there because a TV crew was filming their B roll), Nirvana, Stones and AC/DC.
The interactive portion was perhaps more interesting THEN.
NOW, they are accomplished musicians and complained that the guitars were out of tune.
Ooh, look at my reflection above...I just noticed THAT, too. It's the MOM-THING'S GHOST!
THEN, they were just excited to touch big boy instruments.
THEN, Frank had recently learned to play guitar and bass.
THEN, Ernest had recently started piano lessons.
Can you say, IT SEEMS LIKE JUST YESTERDAY?
