Jackson Browne Appearance

Yesterday (Saturday) Jackson Browne performed at a small fund raiser for County Supervisor Doreen
Farr's election campaign.
The event was very low key and quite special. It was for just a few dozen people and Jackson Browne
casually walked through the crowd, available to talk to people.
His solo performance was very personal, with lots of interaction with us. Quite a special treat. He played
a few of his favorites, plus a song he wrote about Haiti after the earthquake. About how the real tragedy
is the poverty more than the natural disaster.
Then he took requests. I requested "Lives in the Balance" about the brutal horrors Reagan did to the
people of Central America. Before playing the song, he took the time to explain what it was about and
how much of it still applied today with Iraq.
Other requests included "The Pretender" and "Running on Empty". The latter required completely re-
tuning his guitar. I had no idea!
Here are my photos.
