In my never ending quest to support rock-n-roll at our local legendary Surf Ballroom . . . I must say original lead singer and guitarist Phil Lewis and his LA Guns kicked ass and sounded great. The Surf has a certain aura to it . . . and I always try to sit in the phone booth, close the door and think what it may have been like on that day in February when the music died. But, for us locals on a cold, snowy night in Iowa . . . the music was alive and well. Next up? Gary Lewis and The Playboys (I haven't bought my ticket quite yet).
