We went tons of places, so I'll try and post a lot to share what we did. Come back.
This post is focussed on musicians.
Bob Dylan grew up in Duluth, Minnesota.
In Minneapolis they have a huge street art painting of Bob Dylan saying, Times really are a changin'. It's a portrait of when he was young, to middle aged, to older. The painting was done by artist Eduardo Kobra.
I wanted to go to Prince's old house, but Paisley Park is over $50 a person to get in. A bigger deal than that is that they won't let you take pictures. I hate that his family isn't getting anything, for these tours. With me having my sons, I didn't think it would work out. We did drive by at the end of our trip. There's no parking, it's on a highway, and there's a sign that says, "No walkers". Boo! I took photos out of my rolled down window, while my husband drove oh so slowly. Not much to see. It's modern white. The inside is where the magically stuff is.
We walked past an area that had all kinds of stars painted on it. All of the stars were silver, except Prince's was gold.
I was standing there listening to Isaak play on a chained up piano. A group of guys walk up and say, "Can you excuse me. I want to photograph that." He pointed to the gold star. I asked, "Have you been to his house?" He said, "You mean Paisley Park? No. BUT I used to work for him." How cool!
Isaak's been teaching himself how to play a piano with his keyboard that lights up. One of his classes in the fall is Piano Lessons.
I told everyone to stand by a star or two they like. Comment with what star you would pick to stand by.
I chose Indigo Girls and Björk.
Travis likes things heavier than I do. He picked Clutch and NoFX.
Mica's into Nirvana right now. That will change in a month. He loved Queen last year, and now says they are old news to him. Ha!
Isaak doesn't really know musician's names except he's big into Michael Jackson. He likes gold, so he picked Prince.
Here are you choices + what's above that we chose.
