Lyle Lovett

September 13th, 2004 · 2 Comments · Los Angeles


Along with friends D, H, D, S, A & J we went to see Lyle Lovett last night at the Hollywood Bowl. He is so professional, so relaxed.

You can tell a lot about a musician by how they start up. H was discussing this. Do they talk to us, asking us how we’re doing and if we’re really excited and if we think that’s excited enough?

Mr Lovett lets the music brew for a couple of minutes, casually walks across the large stage in the dark, carefully connects the guitar strap over his shoulder in a respectful speed–both to the guitar and to its strap–turns around, and precisely catches the song, the spotlight warming along with the applause of the audience.

    This old porch is like a steamin’ greasy plate of enchiladas with lots of cheese and onions and a guacamole salad. And you can get’em down at the LaSalle Hotel in old downtown with ice tea and a waitress and she will smile every time.
