A Royal Confession From Las Vegas
Generally speaking, The VAR Guy is a classic rock fanatic. His iPhone is loaded with tunes from Pink Floyd, Rush … and more Pink Floyd. But tonight, during a business trip in Las Vegas, he may sneak away from his hotel room to see the most unlikely of bands.
Alas, The VAR Guy has always been a big Prince fan. Sure, you know about Purple Rain. But our resident blogger even likes the Prince albums and tunes that never got radio time (Ronnie Talk to Russia, Christopher Tracy’s Parade and dozens more). And tonight, a Prince cover band called Purple Reign (how original…) is playing at the House of Blues — which is located in The VAR Guy’s Las Vegas hotel.
So, you won’t catch The VAR Guy cruising on the Las Vegas strip tonight. But that doesn’t mean he’s turning in early.
