The very first album I ever owned (yes, we had “albums” back in those pre-CD days) was Earth Wind & Fire’s Greatest Hits Volume II. I have always loved their magnificent mix of soul, rock, blues and jazz. Well, I got to see them Monday night at Chastain with some work colleagues. We were at a table in the pit (if you don’t know Chastain, this means we were right up front with a table, candles, catered food and wine). We were the fourth table back. It was AWESOME!! I danced and sang and had a great time. During the encore, I looked at my friend and said “I’m going in!” and I (gently) pushed my way up to the front. I got to slap skin with Verdine White, one of the founding members of the band, and I walked away after the show with a drumstick!! I’m such a groupie. It was a blast.
