Disallow my previous statements--I'm still pissed at my roommate, but "I will be there." Hopefully, I'll meet some new folks pre-show, share stories, lager, and energy, and report back. Don't fret NY--I wish I woulda saved for the second leg, but I'm an impatient lad . . . <img src=pix/icon_smokin.g...

<font color=blue>I was going to look up some quotes about Peter from Steve, but I can't find my Tim Morse book. Basically, he said some very nice things about Peter's playing and songwriter, and laying the groundwork for the band. When I first got into the band, I couldn't care less for the earlier ...

Welcome No. 1, I think his name is Tom Brislin(?), but you may want to search around a bit here. I thought he was . . . adequate, but not really inspired. That's understandable, being his first tour, and having the spotlight on Jon, Steve, Chris and Alan was more important. So I think he was . . . f...
