The Jewish Elvis

As a birthday celebration this year, my womanchild Lalaine secured 4 tickets, representing amazing box seats, for Neil Diamond at the Hollywood Bowl. Ma Dukes and my brother Jens accompanied.


Back in 1997, when I worked at Movie Magic on Polk Street in San Francisco, it was the policy that each employee was able to choose what film would broadcast in the store, on a rotating basis. My co-workers dreaded the 90 minutes alloted to me as I would frequently choose to watch Neil Diamond’s Love at the Greek, his 1977 concert filmed at the Greek Theater, which featured such notables as Henry “The Fonz” Winkler at the height of his Happy Days fame and beloved Los Angeles mayor, Tom Bradley. Witness:

As this concert made such an impact on me, you can only imagine the excitement spilling from our garden box.


Jens was equally enthralled, being so close, as he can hardly see anyway.


And for my mom, this was a dream come true, even though the hot Indian summer night got her shook.


And it coincided with the last night of Rosh Hashanah. L’shanah tovah!

Big up to King Errisson. I saw you back there, dunny.
