(In a moment of temporary insanity, I volunteered to be some kind
of stage manager for this goat-rope! Can you imagine getting fifteen
bands on and off a stage - most of them don't even have roadies!
I know I'm taking my Sonic II earplugs, bottled water, rolls of

Wish me luck! If you go, I'll be wearing a lime-green Convex visor
so come by and say hi!
