Bobby looses luggage in Mexico


Bobby McFerrin had to take a dose of his own medicine when he arrived in Mexico for a series of concerts, but his luggage didn't. "Why does the world need to be happy right now? Imagine, I just lost my luggage," McFerrin, paraphrasing his 1988 hit single, told reporters jokingly during interviews Monday to discuss performances in Mexico City this week. "I'm trying to find my luggage; forget the world."

The bags apparently were misplaced either on McFerrin's flight or between the Mexico City airport and his hotel. The good thing, McFerrin said, is that "music is a therapeutic activity, as well as a mystical one." The artist's performances will include a concert in the capital and an appearance as guest conductor of the Mexico City Philharmonic Orchestra.
