They say don’t meet your heroes, they will only disappoint you. I have met a lot of celebrities that I thankfully wasn’t a fan of who were arrogant, rude, and acted like they were better than everyone else. However, when it comes to meeting the people that I admire and am a huge fan of, I have been very lucky.

Grey Gardens is unusual in a number of ways, but perhaps most notably for being the only musical based on a documentary. Thus, the show has an historical perspective uncommon in musical theatre.

One of the defining hits for the classic rock band Styx is “Fooling Yourself” (The Angry Young Man), and it has a lyric that goes, “And you’re fooling yourself if you don’t believe it. You’re kidding yourself if you don’t believe it.” For the 1,500 fans that attended the Styx concert at the Bakersfield Fox Theater on January 15, there was no fooling or kidding them to believe that even after 40-plus years in the music business, the Chicago rock ensemble continues to thrive, and their live show is proof of that.

At one time, he was the mystery man in fellow comic Gabriel Iglesias’ early career set routines, only referred to by his first name, and it didn’t matter the situation in the story – good or bad – his catch phrase was “But it was funny, huh?”
