You can't Live without Dying

You cannot live without dying. You cannot live if you do not die psychologically every minute. 

This is not an intellectual paradox. 

To live completely, wholly, every day as if it were a new loveliness, there must be dying to everything of yesterday, otherwise you live mechanically, and a mechanical mind can never know what love is or what freedom is. 

- Krishnamurti, Freedom from the Known, 77

Kingsborough Unleashed in Concord

A Show Report by Jim Ocean

New generation rockers Kingsborough plugged in, stepped up to the mic, and then like geckos, they grabbed the audience with two great cover tunes. 

They then unleashed their originals which stole the night with all the song elements hitting just right. Tight rhythms, 3 and 4 part harmony, excellent lyrics, tasty solos...nothing missing...masterful song-writing! 

As a final flourish they covered the Joe Cocker version of With a Little Help From My Friends to thank the 4,000+ Concord fans who were on their feet screaming.
