BACKSTAGE with wife and 5yr old son

Hara Arena had giant fencing to keep patrons from accessing behind the stage area, but we conned one of the dead crew into believing my wife was on her . and needed to access a clean rr.

Ramrod became my son's escort. He repeatedly stated that my son was the reason we were allowed back. He made my wife and I sit behind the stacks were a couple of cats were rollin'. My son was placed behind Mickey and we watched as Ramrod used open flames to heat Mickey's drumhead. After the show, Mickey gave him sticks. Brett, Billy and Phil all seemed to be on the same page. Bobby talked with us at length and he and Mickey and Ramrod were the most accessible. Billy got into it with a local roadie and may have even smacked him??? Jerry walked in and out with his briefcase alone and aloof from the others. What a night!
