Well, after a 17 year wait this time I only had to wait eleven months to see my favorite band once again…and this could be the last time so let’s enjoy it for all it’s worth…

Tonight was the world debut of Never Say Die live.  The Doctors never played it live before. Also resurrected from the past is I Like You.  They had Sleepy Time listed on the encores but decided not to play it.  Perhaps it’ll happen on the 2nd night. Surfin’ Bird was FABULOUS.

The band seemed less focused and not as sharp as last year but I think that the monitor sound had a lot to do with that.  I don’t think they could hear themselves very well.  I am hoping that it will be better tonight.

The new CD Post OP is now available, collecting a lot of the odds and sods that never made to disc “back in the day.”  It is an essential addition to the first two LPs that were released back in 1981 and 1982.  The time is quickly approaching for me to do an essay on my subjective history of the band for the 4 Out Of 5 Doctors web site.  Over the last year I have been christened the band’s official “historian” and as I told Layne after last evening’s performance that having my name listed and being “thanked” on a 4 Out Of 5 Doctors LP means more to me than my Grammy nomination.  I’m not kidding.
