Opera Grand Rapids Presents Samson + Delilah [Video] [Photos]

I had planned on heading out to Lake Michigan to get some pictures of the huge waves which came as a result of Hurricane Sandy.  But when I saw the sand whipping around on TV at 60 mph, I changed my mind and decided to take photos at the Opera instead.  From one storm to another, but as it turned out it was a good move! My camera was protected and I got to see a grand opera of Biblical proportions!

Paul McCartney Rocks Detroit At Comerica Park

Forty-One years after the end of the world's greatest rock band,  Paul McCartney proved last night in Detroit that he is truly one of the "best" entertainers ever.  The 69-year-old McCartney treated tens of thousands at Comerica Park to a non-stop three hour show that was absolutely amazing!  Unlike several members of his generation and stature still out on the road, Paul still has it.  He didn't need a slew of background vocalists to cover up the fact that he can no longer sing.
