Paul McCartney’s Band Before Wings

I turned on the TV this morning to discover that not only had we somehow left it on A&E the night before, but that Ann’s favorite Kerry-Edwards campaigner, Jon Bon Jovi was playing. As the camera panned out, showing a whole band performing with him, I had to wonder — how long until people wonder “Who are those other guys playing with Bon Jovi?”

As I wondered who would wonder that, I also continued to wonder who the violinist playing with Bon Jovi was. As the only accompanist with Bon Jovi when Brian, Ann and I saw him in ’04, she had struck me as possessing the same mix of talent and sex appeal as Jon Bon himself. Since then, it seems like she has turned up on television any time Jon Bon Jovi has been performing. Thanks to A&E, I now know that her name is Lorenza Ponce and that she has also arranged string music for the Dixie Chicks and Sheryl Crow. Clearly it’s only a matter of time before we start wondering “Who’s that guy playing with Lorenza Ponce?”
