Love the '85 and '93 selections.
The '88 fall tour was solid and hope to something released from it sooner than later.
I ain't dead yet just busy, busy, busy.... I remember flying into ORD, renting a car, picking my friends and driving all night long for those '85 Virginia shows. AKA "the fatman rocks" tour.
...without a gripe from Grumpy Grumpkins yet?
What gives? ;-)
