Back to Blighty

The second set was truly awesome.

Bucket roared and had flames coming out of it, Iko rocked, LLRain was staggering and He's Gone had some soulful moaning on it that went all the way to the bone.

Oh Yes!

And with Brokedown as an encore how could I complain?

After my fifth Dead show I went back to England to uncover the mystery of my missing friends...

my old bed

After Providence, the Cap Center, the Garden, NYC, the after parties at Lindy's (more nitrious, more nitrious), & the XTC feed orgy parties at the Pennsylvania Hotel. All I wanted to do was spend the day in my old bed at my parents house. Just happened to be on the way to the Spectrum.

This was a great run, it's hard to pick a highlight. Don't tell me this town ain't got to heart.
