Although I have no first hand knowledge, I do have on good authority that Hollow ROCKS and they did a GREAT job in opening for Bon Jovi. Beth, my wife, says that their presence was great and that they sounded amazing. If Hollow is fortunate to win the National competition, then they will get to open again for Bon Jovi. This time on the final night of their tour in Giants Stadium and will win a recording demo contract. At least I think that's how it works.
Hollow has a myspace page: http://www.myspace.com/hollowrock
There you can hear 3 of the band's songs and read some of the comments by people who were at the concert. The night before the concert, they had ~40 friends. The night after the concert, they had requests to add over 100 people as friends on their myspace page. I (emphasis added) was on there as a friend BEFORE they opened for Bon Jovi. Of course, one of the band's members is my brother-in-law and I would love him and his wife (and her brother and his wife...I don't really know the drummer, but I can love him too, I guess) (if you're confused, I'll draw you a picture of the family tree later) even if they weren't on the cusp of fame and stardom (which they are). There's also a picture of Hollow with Bon Jovi. How cool is that!?!
I was reminded my 2 friends tonight that I'm not consistently posting...sorry. I actually have plenty to say, just no time in my 80 hour work week to say it.
I will write about the Neonatal ICU (NICU) in a few days. PROMISE!
Take time this week to stop and smell the roses. Dr.'s orders.
