MIX AND MATCH

Page 3 of 3

Target audience: Those impressed that Crow once worked as a background singer for Don Henley.

Fun fact: Crow's contribution to the pointless Led Zeppelin tribute disc Encomium is the worst Zep cover of all time.

Watch for... Crow to run out of material after about thirty minutes.

Tony Bennett, with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. September 7, Fiddler's Green.

Last good album: Last year's MTV Unplugged.
Target audience: People who didn't see this year's Super Bowl halftime extravaganza.

Fun fact: Flea, of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, reminds Tony of Jimmy Durante.
Watch for... the oldest performer on the current summer schedule to put on one of the best shows. Go figure.
