How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Chrissie was phenomenal! She had the entire crowd in the palm of her hand (not to mention a guy in the pit who ASKED for her hand, to which she remarked, "sorry, daddy-o. Marrying me would be a BIG mistake." But I digress... The band held up their end of the bargain as well, with her veteran drummer Martin Chambers, youngsters Wilkinson on bass & Walbourne on lead guitar, delivering a rich, full musical onslaught... But Chrissie was absolutely the highlight! Who'd a thunk a woman in her mid-fifties could bring down the house with a voice as clear & strong as she sounded thirty years ago?? It just goes to show: Age may be a constant, but youth is relative. Love doing what you do & you'll never grow old.
