nose bleed heaven

Thought a cop was gonna beat the crap out of me getting in. Had one of those stylish sleeveless vests on, and I believe it was a cop working security frisked me and put his hands in my vest pocket, and pulled it out real quick, then the same thing a few more times. "what you got in your pocket, son." i don't know, I said as i pulled a dead button out of my pocket. He stuck himself on the pin every time he put his hand in my pocket. (good thing, saved me some trouble)
my seats were dead center in front of the stage, the absolute last row in the house. Had a blast.

First night of the tour

This show in Pittsburgh was supposed to be the second night of the tour. The opening night scheduled for Florida was cancelled close to the last minute. It was with the Allman Brothers Band and the reason the show was cancelled was never confirmed. The speculation I heard was poor ticket sales. My friends took a Hertz Rent A Car from Poughkeepsie, NY drove straight to Florida only to find out the show was cancelled. They then made a bee line to Pittsburgh and returned the car the next day in Po-town. When the odometer data was entered into the Hertz system, all sorts of warning bells went off. How did you put almost 3000 miles on the car in a few days? They never really had a straight answer for that question.
