A second career?

I know that everyone needs a creative outlet, but a leading member of the casino industry might have a hidden musical side.

From Philly.com:


Dating back to his 1980s days with Los Angeles post-punk psychedelicists the Dream Syndicate, Steve Wynn has distinguished himself as one of rock’s most consistently productive unsung heroes. He kept up the good work with the swaggering 2001 double CD Here Comes the Miracles and 2003′s noirish Static Transmission.

On Thursday (Jan. 27), Wynn and his Miracle 3 will play the Khyber, along with the added attraction of the Silos, Walter Salas-Humara’s roots-rock band whose career highlight, 1987′s Cuba, was reissued last year.

Steve Wynn

Who knew that the builder of the Golden Nugget AC, Mirage, TI, Bellagio, Beau Rivage, and the nearly-opened Wynn Las Vegas had the time for a musical career? If I were in Philly this week, I’d see this for sure.

Of course, it might just be a guy who happens to share a name with the casino magnate, but I’ve learned to never underestimate Mr. Wynn.

    Interesting that he is putting on a concert on Thursday… just yesterday he was chowing down at Asiana in the Reno Hilton. Or it could have been somebody with the same name, but the crowd of boot-lickers was too obnoxious to bother checking for sure.
    He said his mountain was coming along just swell. I think he also said that he liked dieiscast.com, but maybe I’m hearing things.

    Don’t forget that he did sing to the crowd of Wall Street analysts.
