Shea Stadium’s featured no shortage of musical moments both sterling(doubleday!) — Grand Funk, anyone? — and wretched (have Black 47 stopped playing yet?). The following event can safely go in the former category (thanks to Don Smith for the link).

This is Shea Stadium™s final year and what better way to go out than with the three chord mayhem of your favorite music makers followed by a trouncing of the St. Louis Cardinals? (By the way, Billy Joel is scheduled to perform the last ever concert at Shea. In an act of mutual respect, we will not perform any songs by the Piano Man and he will lay off our beloved Benny Joy repertoire.) Last A-Bones brush with baseball? Roger Clemons and Red Sox teammates tanked up at Washington DC™s 15 Minute Club while the A-Bones serenaded them with the gift of song.
