All I know about PPAC is that about 25 years ago, feel-good guru Deepak Chopra came to town at PPAC. There were about 400 radio commercials an hour for "DEEPAK AT PEE-PACK!" It's 25 years later and whenever I hear PPAC, I cringe. I hope he lost money on that one.
Last time I was there was Alton Brown 2 or 3 years ago. Underwhelming show. No real big security that I recall.
What did he do? Play guitar and just talk? About what?
****Deepak? No idea.
Brown? He talks. You know that off-the-cuff thing he does on Good Eats. Imagine 90 minutes of it. It's a riot. Well, it used to be. The last time was FAR more about him trying to be the next Eddie Van Halen than his funny stories and making crazy food. I sorta lost interest in him after that.
Plus I think he's sorta stuck. He needs a kick in the ass. He was supposed to be rebooting Good Eats. He made 5-6 episodes of remix and then that was it. He dropped his podcast 2+ years ago. He is not good on tour. He got divorced. I think he's a troubled guy that looks like he has a lot together when he doesn't. He did an interview on Zimmeran's podcast a year or two ago and it was really dark. Like scary dark.
