    Outlaws opening for SRV in 1983? The Outlaws were out in support of Soldier of Fortune at the time? That is a very interesting pairing. How did each stack up against each other that night? In the moment, the Outlaws, with Henry Paul, Hughie, and Chris Andersen were extremely tight. Thanks for...

    Who have you seen walk onstage and immediately own the place (not just because they were famous)?

    I like that root word, "Janky". It's been in the rotation for 30+ years. I kinda thought it was mine, actually. Glad to share.

    Down and Dirty Johnny Winter

    Not understanding completely. Was he: properly dosed, under dosed, over dosed, or just not dosed at all? Those benches are no place to lay your face, even if the janitorial services had just passed through. As a grateful recovering opiate addict, something about his addressing this state of...

    I can't afford concert tickets anymore.

    So much so, that I saw Tom Petty in the America West Arena (PHX) in '99 or so, and was completely bored. No punch, no sizzle. Echoey and distant sounding. They played the songs perfectly. Just couldn't feel the power. Snoozer. My ex wife thought she liked it, though.
