"The day before we went out on a binge for my suprise bachelor party. I fell big time, sick as a dog, the day of the show. Didn't think I'd make it. Slept all the way down. Ate, felt better, got a headache, took some aspirins, felt better, then we played. I was a little less active than usual but the band was on as ever. Fans drove up from Richmond, VA, down from Pittsburgh, and of course from Baltimore, so I'm glad I stuck it out. We opened for a band, Blue Miracle, very nice bunch of guys. Santana/Allman Brothers style. And it rained."
