When the “Sail Rock” tour began, Peter and Ronn had reservations about how it would turn out. It had been a while since Ronn was on tour, but Peter knew most of the boys that were touring in this lineup. What no one expected was for this tour to be such a bonding of genuine admiration and friendship between all of them.

Since I saw the concert several times, it’s safe to say I can properly critique it. Personally, I thought it was fantastic each and every time and I’m not just saying that because I’m partial to Player. All of these guys were simply fantastic musicians and filled every venue with crowds of people who I know would agree with me. The audiences participated with singing along, clapping and dancing to their favorite songs that I’m sure brought back fond old memories.

As the tour progressed, the boys had John Ford Coley open the show. John is a natural at this and his sense of humor is timeless. I have come to adore him and his jokes. I’m reading his book, “Backstage Pass” now and he writes just as he speaks. I highly recommend it. Jock who is one of the original members of “Firefall” is an amazing artist and I was very impressed with his work. The boys from “Orleans” include former NY senator, John Hall along with Lance, Lane and Fly who kept us all laughing with his jokes.

Christopher Cross was quiet at first, but once you get him talking that boy is just a good ole Texan with a great sense of humor too. Then there’s Gary Wright and Robbie Dupree who is just one of a kind and keeps you in stitches constantly. I’ve never seen Peter and Ronn laugh so much and have so much fun as they did on this tour. They have made some friends for life and as the “Sail Rock” tour slowly comes to an end I know it’s indeed a new beginning for all of them.

There  are other tours in the works for next year and Player will sail on to some exotic local. Apparently, lots of locations and other countries are now getting interested in Player. And Peter and Ronn look forward to more adventures touring and will sail on into the sunset with some fun in the sun.

I think the future looks very bright for all these guys because this music is timeless and classic and will never go out of style. You may not recognize the musicians instantly, but you certainly recognize the music. I think anyone that went to the “Sail Rock” concert will agree it was one of the best shows this summer!
