Does anyone remember Dave Bromberg? He was at Hamilton College in 1972 or so. He had a great song "I'll never be your fool." That song is great!

I got smacked in the face by one of those seat cushions that night. Even more messed up was the person throwing the firecrackers. It went like this: Geddy Lee: "Anyone who throws fireworks is an ***hole." (fireworks go off) Geddy: "You're an ***hole."
now that is funny!

Wilmer Alexander Jr and the Dukes, out of Buffalo, played at a street feast at St Agnes in 1967. Father Kenefick found out they were a different band than he thought and they did not know a single song appropriate for the parish. Funny as helll. Father paid them in cash after two songs and gave Wilmer a nice tip to leave pronto. Wilmer ended up at the Blue Note and subbed for a group that did not show up for its gig. We laughed all the way back to Buffalo.

I was the Guy Danzig kept going after. I was 19 and stationed at Ft. Drum. I have truely great memories of that building. When the Pantera Planet Caravan tour made it snow asbestos. I was the Guy with a 24 pack in my army rucksack!

I went to see Danzig with specialist Reagan and two strippers from Syracuse. Mansions set had so upset me that I left the general access floor and sat up in the bleachers. The show was GA only and when Danzig came out to start his set he saw me. He momentarily stopped and began to motion at me. I went chimpanzee and we both put on a display. I butted horns with Danzig. Its been a high point of my life. That night was perfect. I hooked up with Jennifer the stripper back at Drum that night

Believe it or not, Jefferson Starship at the Stanley Circa 1984 was a good show. Bon Jovi also opened up for either Eddie Money or BOC. Whatever show they opened up, Oingo Boingo opened up the other one.
I was there! Bon Jovi opened for Eddie Money. We chatted with the band after they walked off stage and stood in the audience to watch Eddie. No one had ever heard of them but Jon was so cute then as now :)
