Howard Jones

Rusty & I went to see Howard Jones last night at Ram’s Head Annapolis (and Tia, there were tickets still available, so you should have come!).  We were right up front and it was great!  He is quite the story-teller.  He was telling us how during the process of releasing the single “Like to Get to Know You Well” they had the song title written in a bunch of different languages on the cover of the 45.  (One woman in that audience actually had brought her 45 with her that she bought in 1985!)  The contact in Japan called and asked them to stop the press on the artwork unless he wanted to end his career.  Apparrently, what they had written translated in Japanese to “Like to Force Myself Upon You.”  Needless to say, they made the correction, and the song was a huge hit, even in Japan.  Here he is with the 45:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Many more funny stories were told, along with lots of great music.  And it never gets old to see these musicians up close and personal, who we could have only seen 20 years ago from a distance in a huge arena.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks for a great night, Howard!  🙂
