| So Much For Rock 'n Roll
|I forgot to mention that this weekend was the Dubai International Jazz Festival at Dubai Media City - right in our backyard.
The lineup included Freddy Cole, Dee Dee Brigewater, Sergio Bekhazi Blues Trio, Acoustic Alchemy and Jamie Cullum ... and Toto.
Yes, Toto of "Africa" fame.
Toto who won the 1982 Grammy Awards for Album of the Year.
Toto of ... jazz fame?
But were they available?
Um ... yeah.
Considering this weekend was also the two day heavy metal festival Dubai Desert Rock, well, there was lots of washed up talent in Dubai this weekend.
Robert Plant and the Strange Sensation
Yeah, washed up and not really my crowd.
Sadly, last year one of my favorite bands, Reel Big Fish played. I was actually in town visiting, too. But I didn't care about seeing Megadeth, 3 Doors Down or Testament. So I skipped it.
