Marsh Marigold (Caltha palustris)

I have been reading at a pace not seen since I was in the 5th grade and would order the maximum number of books allowed in the book club. Then, words and stories were a safe retreat from an abusive alcoholic parent. Since the initial shoulder surgery in February, I have been devouring books with great joy. My last two reads have chronicled the music scene in the Motor City during the time I was a teen and regularly visiting the Grande Ballroom, Eastown Theatre. and Birmingham Palladium. The Youtube video below, using the partly demolished Grande as a prop, interviews a number of entertainers and promoters that made it the hottest music spot in the USA. I remember the weekend that the Who previewed their rock opera, Tommy, which turned their career around. At  $4.50 a ticket and smashed in together well beyond capacity, it was a night to remember. Enjoy the video...
