See Buddy Guy and Jonny Lang

First off, Buddy Guy is an angel sent from heaven! He is truly a magnificent man!

Over the years I've attended a number of concerts, where bands from different genres impressed with their unique character, yet none of them came even close to what Buddy Guy did on the stage tonight.

For me the man has two faces - the old grumpy man who shoots orders at you with a strict voice that roars respect somewhere deep from his chest - the second is a humoristic twenty-something voice that fools and teases the crowd while the body plays an almost stand-up comedy show. Ok, ok there is a third character - the romantic one, or the story teller - a true bluesy deep voice that rips open the heart and pulls out the listener's soul. Exceptional man!

As to my seat - I was seated at a balcony just above the stage. Massey Hall has one of the best acoustics, hands down. Also the atmosphere is intimate, people are engaging into communication with the performers, cracking jokes etc... Definitely this concert was one to remember. It is incomparable to anything else and I hope to attend next year if he comes to town (he comes every year for the past 10 or so).

Oh, one more thing... Buddy played not only his great songs but also - Hendrix, Clapton, Muddy Waters, Marvin Gaye the list goes on ... I think the crowd could easily listen to two more hours. In addition his band was excellent! The keyboardist did a couple of insane solos. Bassist, drummer, guitarist, well, everyone was spot on onto every gesture that Buddy, like a conductor, requested.

Young Jonny Lang played a couple of really nice solos (didn't sing at all) he is definitely talented (brilliant) but his presence was shadowed by Buddy even though the later was hands down when Lang showed of his skill with some lighting fast moves. Lang is very emotional and he feels the music. Definitely interests me to see his performance in the future.

Smoke shisha with friends

Smoking shisha is a social activity, which can be practiced if you are above the legal age for smoking. The smoking system is fairly simple to use and can be found in Turkish or Arabic cafes all over the world. It is believed that it originated in Persia and later was introduced in India. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of tobacco flavors to chose from with the most common being the apple flavor. You might want to challenge yourself to try a variety of tobaccos in order to achieve this challenge. Smoking shisha is a soothing process, which relaxes the mind and gets you into a philosophical mood.
There are some urban legends on how some people achieved this goal. Some say that Russians used vodka instead of water to get an extra kick out of it. This, we believe, is not healthy and you should be cautious if you decide to attempt such a mad experiment with your body. On the other hand we have tried to substitute the water with milk and mint. It intensified the flavor of the “king tobacco” that we decided to try.
If buying your own shisha is what you want to add to your bucketlist, keep in mind that cleaning is very important and there are many designs that you have to look into when choosing the right one.
If you are about to smoke (accomplish) the challenge with random people, make sure that you use plastic tips on the hose as to prevent (to certain extent) the transmission of bacteria. If such are not available grab the tip of the hose with your hand and smoke through a hole between your thumb and index finger.
Smoking hookah is a great and simple challenge, but keep in mind that smoking anything is harmful to the body and it is your responsibility to look after yourself.
