The Commodores are on day 16 of their national concert tour, performing in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Iowa and Wisconsin.
On November 12, following our ninth concert in a row , we welcomed a day off in Michigan City, Ind. Most of the band used this time to relax, exercise, and catch up on some laundry. Chief Musician Gary Malvaso and I decided to buy some fishing gear and hit the lakes and rivers. Although unsuccessful in the first couple of spots, we finally ended up in a part of the river right next to the hotel. Luck was on our side in this spot and we had a great time catching some nice-sized steelhead trout, a first for both of us. In case you’re wondering, we did not bring our catch on the bus. The steelhead were released back into the river.
