Love and Happiness

























The man is 64 years old, he's had boiling grits dumped on him, abandoned secular music and come back to it again. And we are all grateful.

The Reverend Al Green tore down the Sony Centre in Toronto tonight for 75 minutes of soul and gospel. I have no qualms admitting that when he sang 'Amazing Grace,' I misted up a little. Then he sang 'Let's Stay Together' and set the crowd on fire, with more energy than men a third his age.

You like music? See the Rev. while you still can.

I never miss him, but he does seem to be slowing down - he looked tired during Love and Happiness. And no encore - usually 10 minutes of frenzied clapping and chanting brings an act back out.
