Saw Vonda Shepard in concert tonight in San Francisco. We first met thirty-five years ago at summer camp in Southern California, where this picture was taken in 1979. The following fall, I got tickets to a Don McLean/Karla Bonoff concert at the Roxy, and Vonda came with me. After the show, we got backstage and met both Don and Karla. Now, Vonda’s the one performing around the world. Seeing her tonight, after such a mad crush on her way back then, reminds me how quick life passes. There you are, an infatuated teen; and before you know it, you’re a middle-aged dad with a mortgage. To see what Vonda’s up to these days, click here.
