I am 14 again...


I went to St. David's Hall, Cardiff last night to see my teen idols, The Osmonds, who were appearing in concert there. Minus Donny of course, and now including Jimmy.

They were really fabulous it has to be said. Their voices are still spot on, they are polished and extremely entertaining. They all play a variety of instruments and they sing such a variety of styles of music. The Proud One, Love Me For a Reason (brought the house down), Let Me In (gorgeous song...and not a love song, as people think it is). But it's when they did their more rocky numbers that I remember why I liked them so much. Hold Her Tight, Yo Yo, stuff from The Plan, Crazy Horses had everyone up on their feet dancing, and Jay's drum solo earlier in the show was excellent too. Danny came with me and I think he was amazed how many songs I knew off by heart! Thoroughly brilliant evening really.

Alan doesn't sing with them hardly ever now because he has MS, so the oldest one performing is Wayne, who is now 54 (55 this year)! I find it really weird that they're that old. How can it possibly be that many years ago I had every single inch of my bedroom covered in their posters!? But when I see them (or Donny) I always feel exactly like I did when I was 14. Happy days.

Now I was more of a David Cassidy fan myself - never understood the whole 'Osmond' thing {jools runs away quickly out of Chrissie's arms reach...}

Chrissie said...

:O WHAT!!!??? "Not. Understand. The whole Osmond. THING?" WHAT?!!!

*Chrissie goes off muttering about 'and where's David Cassidy NOW then' and don't EVEN mention the Bay City Rollers...not before clipping Jools' ear*

Actually...have to say...I did quite like ol' David myself. WHAT a cutie. "Could it be forever, or is my mind just a rambling ooooon"...

Just have to post again. HOW can you look at Donny (with 14 year old eyes and when he was all sweaty from singing on stage) and not fancy THAT? I mean REALLY????

Jools said...

'Ermm, very easily???

He really just wasn't my type, I think I was always a little more the mature 'bad' boy type - not that David was a bad boy but he was a little more mature, LOL!

Great to see you again after all these years Chrissie. You're so talented and inspirational. Think how joy you brought us all last saturday and be glad. See you in June if I'm not riding the streets of Reading in my red engine!

Roo :)
