So glad you had a good time last night. We were so disappointed – the sound board completely died minutes before doors, so all our crew threw their might into coming up with a solution. It was tense for sure, but John, being the consummate professional, came out and played as many songs as the venue would allow, given the shortened time frame. We definitely went in with the intention of playing every song on that list. Venue restrictions simply prohibited us from going past curfew, so we had to make some difficult cuts. I’m so glad Billy Gibbons was able to come out and rock for you guys. He and John had so much fun on stage together. That really was a once-in-a-lifetime thing to see. We so appreciate you guys sticking around through the delay, and I hope that wait paid off for you.
As far as Shane playing, he will be out for most of the weekend shows, since he doubles as a USC senior for his day job.
DRBQ you are awesome. I was there and I was STILL eagerly reading every word you wrote. What a fantastic review. You really summed it up perfectly. I’m glad you got to see the exhibit and I hope all of the rest of you Fogerty fans make the pilgrimage out here!
The exhibit opens tomorrow! John stopped by today to take a walk down memory lane. Some of this stuff he hasn’t seen in years. Here’s a sweet photo of him showing his grade school report cards to his daughter Kelsy.
