When elderly people get too out of touch with the modern world to properly look after themselves, they are often placed in retirement homes. When popular musicians reach this point, they, too, retire to a home of sorts where they can receive the kind of care and consideration they will need going forward. We call these places casinos.
In your immediate area, there are at least three shining examples of such music health facilities: Harrahs New Orleans, Boomtown in Harvey and Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Miss. In August, the latter hosts incite-ful bible study with the unplugged '60s version of Rage Against the Machine, Mssrs. Crosby, Stills and Nash (Aug. 6), and a smooth bingo hour with 90s crooner and cover-butcher Michael Bolton (Aug. 22). September at Boomtown brings blind board games with country crossover Ronnie Milsap (Sept. 13). And theres no disagreeing with Harrahs October story time featuring the immortal Dave Mason (Oct. 17).
So, stop by one of these centers and pay your respects to a pop patriarch. For life is short, and it wont be long till its time for the Lawrence Welk revue with Amy Winehouse and trivia Tuesday with Justin Timberlake.
