artist: The Flos
Review: What a show!!! I just love watch those ladies performer. What a treat to see Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurance that sang with Diana Ross, they are unbelievable. Also I was so excited and glad to see Joyce Vincent with Scherrie and Lynda, Joyce was on the group Tony Orlando & Dawn and what a treat to see Joyce Vincent performing again. I love the song Joyce did lead on @ the show the song called: I Hear A Symphony. Joyce Vincent is such a wonderful singer and did I mention Beautiful, Joyce Vincent is my favorite Dawn when she was with Tony Orlando. Again, I will for sure would love to see The Flos again in concert, also It would love to see the Flos release a New CD! P.S. The Flos, You Keep Me Hanging On!!!!/FONT>

artist: automatic mini burgers local long beach band
Review: Joey jordison is truely my icon. I'm vocals in my band but seeing his crazy adrenaline and speed made me want to be in a band. I admire joey because he opened up the door to a heavier beat of the drum and as he said in one of his interviews, "I've always thought that the most important musician out there is that kid that's in his basement that no one has heard of. There are kids coming out that want to make their mark-they're one-upping everybody, and it's absolutely amazing. i love it." Thanks for knowing that we're here. And believing that us kids are gonna get somewhere. I will forever see you as my icon. Thank you.

Review: I took my wife and kids to see the hits and all we got was self-indulgent schlock. Started great and quickly devolved into Adam loving Adam. Next time you want to jam with your stoner buddies get down and the basement and rock on. When you have families doling out $300, you should be expected to give them a little bit of what they want. Totally pissed off for wasting hard earned money on such an egomaniac. You poor tortured soul!

Review: I have two friends who have had separate encounters with the actual witches' spirits. Both told me (neither of them know each other) that they witnessed one blue, one green, and one purple light. Both friends said they felt sinister, and one friend said he heard female voices telling him never to go near the tower again (on that occasion, the witches had followed him back to his room and spoke to him while he slept).

Michael Fiems, Tucson, Az. 08/04/10
artist: Yes: Guitar, Bass, Piano, Vocals, Songwriting
Review: I have seen Rain twice in California. In San Francisco and Concord. To see these musicians live is truly the "Tribute of Tributes" to The Beatles. The vocals and playing of All instruments Live, no tape loops of any kind on anything is incredible to say the least! They make absolutely no attempt at trying to be The Beatles, instead concentrating on honoring John, Paul, George and Ringo as dead on as could be.As artists in their own right, Rain is fabulous. The duration of time they have been playing together is astonishing in itself, approaching 3 decades and as strong as ever. A definite MUST!

Review: These guys are great. They are not afraid to be rock heros for those who still think that great sounding rock should be played well in big live settings complete with instrumental jamming and drum solos. Thank you Rush, for not dying the big death like Robert Plant and jimmy Page!!!

Steve Rose, Ottawa Canada 07/30/10
artist: RUSH
Review: Great review. I saw RUSH here in Ottawa a few nights after the Chicago shows and they were amazing. Moving Pictures, performed as more of an Opus than individual songs was very impressive. After their break, they didn't say a word, nor did they introduce any of the songs. Yet at the end of Vital Signs, Lee said "that was Moving Pictures". Very sophistocated band.
Up here in Canada we sometimes forget how popular RUSH is in the US (if not the rest of the world). Their new DVD 'Beyond The Lighted Stage' answers so many questions and provides the band history many of us have been dying for!!!
As for the footage on the DVD, it's simply incredible. The only thing I didn't like was the editing of this footage as opposed to simply playing the whole song - for example Bastille Day performed early in the movie.
RUSH are Gods. They are super-human and my life is far better off with them than without.

Michelle, Whitewatwer, WI 07/27/10
Review: I have been raised in Whitewater my whole life and from my understanding Mary was not just buried in the one cemetery she was split in 3 and buried in all three of the cemeteries which form the triangle, Also As for the book "not existing". Very good friends of my parents use to do a lot of work with the Cemeteries and do a lot historical documentation for whitewater. Mind you as a kid hearing all the tales of whitewater I had asked him about them when I was a teenager, not only had he told me that anyone involved with the library was to say that the book did not exist they were to deny any and all tales of the witches. As a teenager I had heard about articles that had been published in the royal purple regarding the witch stories and at that time if you went to Anderson library they did not have those in the micro film and clamed that there were no articles even written when you could plainly see there where missing dates of them. He also told me that in the under ground tunnels there were artifacts found to support the claims to witches being there as well as the klu Klux klan. Also he told me that the original streets of whitewater when planed were to form a wagon wheel, but do to unforeseen events they were never completed as planed and the street ended up forming a pentagon, at least until the early 1900's. Another thing that if you look up not only has there been some strange suicides, there is supposable a curse on whitewater and if you dig deep enough there was a murder every 7 years. The way I see it is for being what people say is a urban legend and for the doubtful there has been a lot of cover up done for a lot of years for there not to be some truth behind it.
