There are few true legends of Rock & Roll from the original era left.  And Frankie Valli is certainly one of them.

I've always been a fan of what some may call "Oldies but Goodies" music.  Mostly because that's what was on my fathers radio most of the time.

I'm a huge proponent of "go see the legend".  You just never know.  However, this time I might have a different angle.

See, I'm a huge Soprano's fan.  I just finished watching the complete series twice in a year (not to mention the countless times before).  The first time was to prepare for the coming of the prequel "The Many Saints of Newark" and another time to follow along with the Michael Imperioli (Christopher) and Steve Schirrippa (Bobby Bacala) podcast, "Talking Sopranos".

Frankie Valli plays Rusty, a high ranking member of the Lupertazzi family who gets wacked (spoiler alert) after Johnny Sack puts a hit out on him to take over the family.  Come see me sometime and I'll explain more.

But in the meantime, we'll have to wait for Rusty....I mean, Frankie to come to the Quad Cities.  But not too long!

Why My 1st Time Camping Sucked…and How You Can Avoid Problems

Let me correct my own headline.  My first time camping didn’t “suck”.  Camping was actually a blast!  Once we were there it was great.  Getting there and leaving was a GIANT pain in the ass. 
 
Here’s what I’d do differently:
