Sheryl Crow in Cleveland: Still sexy after all these years

Sure, Sheryl Crow’s show at the Plain Dealer Pavilion this week wasn’t exactly sold-out. And yes, it is strange when a rock star you listened to on your Walkman when you were 14 sings lyrics like “I’m gonna soak up the sun.” But there are still many reasons to love this lady: 1. At age 45, after adopting a kid and battling breast cancer, she still rocks a tight leather vest and jeans. 2. You really believe that she likes “a good beer buzz early in the morning,” and it makes you start wondering where to get one. (Editor's note: The corner of Lorain Avenue and Every Numbered Street Between W. 25th and W. 150th). 3. When she starts singing “Strong Enough,” you can hear thousands of people silently cursing Lance Armstrong. 4. Her “favorite mistake” was a Tour de France champion who made surviving cancer look sexy. Which makes you think your break-up with the sorta cute junior account executive really wasn’t that bad. 5. No one can pull off a Thelma and Louise-style power ballad quite like she can. Steal his car. Drive to Texas. You go girl. – Lisa Rab
