Just before school started, a few big names came to town so I figured I would try to meet them.
First Kevin Bacon came back to Kent with his brother and their band. I didn't go to the show but I figured I might try to get Kevin on the Footloose soundtrack. The fans were waiting by the side door by the bus and he actually came out the front door. He did sign a few on the way to the bus and took some pictures with the primarily female crowd.

September has been a pretty good month for adding to the collection. Things started to slow down in Northeast Ohio, but I still managed to get a few good ones.
Todd Rundgren made his 5th appearance in Northern Ohio in the past 12 months. Apparently he has a pretty big fan base here. Believe it or not- he is playing again in December. I think people were disappointed with his “Global” tour as he basically played techno music and he only played a few of his hits. So in…Continue
