Expectations can be a bitch…drove to LA with DP and RT believing that when we got there we would have have great tickets on the floor within first ten rows.  Dinner with Michael Collins (who declares himself to be a “Buddhist Rastafarian”) is nice but turns out DP & MC’s tix are way back on the floor and RT and myself are literally in the LAST ROW of the Staples Center.  Expectations…Sheryl Crow’s opening set literally sounded like a bad record player in another building.  The Stones were good but I can’t believe that those tix on the floor were going for $400.00 a piece face value.  THAT is why the Stones are millionaires.  Nice work if you can get it.  RT on the ride home:  “I feel like I’ve been used by DP.”  Note to self:  nothing’s free.
