One thing I thought I would never see in The Bee: James Taylor is coming to Fresno! And yet, there it was one happy day announcing a July 12 appearance at Save Mart Center.
I’ve been a fan since the good old days. James, along with Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; Joni Mitchell; Peter, Paul and Mary; and the Rolling Stones, were part of the background music for that era when there was a wonderful sense of community and power and potential for change. I felt like I was part of a social movement built on love.
Some folks seem to look back on that era as a time of hippies and drugs, but it was so much more! Taylor’s music has stuck with me more than the music of any other artist of that era. Thanks, Fresno. And, to fellow James Taylor fans, see you on July 12.
