Sonny a clown

I was at this show and it was my favourite show of the year (and I saw The Who, The Stones, Allmans, Mule, and Roger Waters this year!)

Jimmy sure was playing with them and he was really shredding it on guitar.

Interesting you noticed the Black Sabbath tease - the house music between sets was Black Sabbath's first album (kind of fit in with the Hallowe'en theme of the evening).

It was nice to run into Basher and Large Marge in the drink line-up between sets. You guys really know how to party! Marge demonstrated her meeting with JB to me, and I'm sure it's something he won't soon forget!

They did some black sabbath durring their first halloween show. Thats where the weird covers idea came in. They wanted to do stuff that people wouldn't expect etc. Schools is a crazy music nerd. And likes it heavy.

I'm digging the Black Sabbath tease around 8 minutes into Greta. If they had broken into 'Sabbath, that would have been super-sick!

Sounds like a great show so far. Was Jimmy playing with them?

Also during the Halloween 2000 run in New Orleans, they opened the 3 night run with Sweet Leaf. I remember being in the arena and hearing those opening chords. The crowd went nuts of course. Oh I miss the days of being able to travel. I'm incredibly jealous of all of you who make it out to shows still.
