Hello Nation!!

Sorry for the delay but work, stuff @ home, etc... So here is a recap of last Saturday's show in Mansfield, MA

Set list:
- Last of a Dyin' Breed
- What's Your Name
- Down South Jukin'
- That Smell
- Saturday Night Special
- I Know A Little
- Simple Man
- Good Teacher - New
- Breeze
- 3 Steps
- Sweet Home Alabama
- Free Bird

Now the "Little Stuff"
Got there early to take in the sytes & stuff.. Saw Boxcar riding around on his mountain bike, came right over to say "Hi" to me and catch up.. What a classy guy to take time out and say hi to me... Can't tell you how many Frynds I ran into.. Frynds from show's... Frynds from the Simple Man Cruises.. It was lots of fun catching up.. Also met the man himself and keep of the web... Tom S. Great catching up with him and is always great to talk to.. Missed my "Summit Frynds"..
NO Backstage passes/meet & greet... Still don't get it... I drive to NYC to do a freakin' video, spill my guts out on my passion for the band and nope... NOTHING.... Like many of you, not feelin' the love and frustrated... Although I did run into a front man from a "tribute band" (JoeZ know's who I'm talking about) and "HE" and his lady Frynd got there meet & greet passes... I asked how they got them and yup SOS.... "I know the tech of Poison who know the tech of blah.. blahh"... bottom line he's in and I'm NOT!!!!

There was an opening band, then Skynyrd came on..
Everybody looked great, energized & pumped... The Angels looked FANTASIC!!! The boyz sounded great.. Although I don't know about Johnny Colt.. First time seeing him and he just didn't do it for me.. At least Kearns acknowledged the crowd, didn't see it from Colt.. Maybe, he needs to warm up and find his groove... So we'll wait & see..
Not crazy about the new song "Good Teacher" would have rather heard "Homegrown" or something else.. But just my 2 cents...

ZZ Top came on and they are what they are... 3 guys from TX... I did purchase a VIP that THEY HAD!!! So after the show you got your picture with them.. I would have rather the boyz from Skynyrd... But they'd have to do a VIP package, which they seem not to want to meet us...

All in all it was a great time...

NEXT....
Tomorrow night 38 Special in Foxboro, MA... I'll be hanging with wickey and frynds...

So be cool and keep it going... 'cause lord knows if we don't who will????

I'm not dead, at least not yet, Still Alone, Still Alive, STILL UNBROKEN....

CITH, got that right!!!

A choo choo with square wheels... lol...

Went to 38 Special last night and NO DONNIE!!! We expected him to pop out at some point, but he wasn't even there... After the show with my good Frynds wickey & his lady frynd & some other Simple Man Cruises hung out & were able to talk to some of the guys... I guess he's tired, sick, etc... So he's resting and is taking some time off... It would have been nice for the guys to say "Donnie isn't with us, he's resting" or something like that...
They still kicked azz and steamrolled through the show...

Of course no "Meet & Greet"... A total of maybe 8 people got to meet them before the show... S.O.S.... Choo Choo didn't get backstage.... lol...

Next show, going a little country... Montgomery Gentry.... Then CRUISE TIME!!!

I also posted my 2 cents on Skynyrds vidoe that Scoops Loco posted and don't hate me... But I didn't like it...

So Nation have a great Fryday and be cool....

Out....

I'm not dead, at least not yet, Still Alone, Still Alive, STILL UNBROKEN....

Happy Friday all.

No Donnie, Medway. WOW. I hope he is doing ok.

I'm with you re the video, Medway. Cliche', and didnt parallel the overview of the albums supposed sentiment….. THEY
PULLED DOWN THE FLAG. I can watch the news to see that. THAT was disappointing.

Thanks for posting the link Loco, I couldnt get the link to work that the web site had posted a few days ago.



Anyway, take care and Turn it up will ya?

Hello Skynyrd Nation heres my story for Last of a Dyin' Breed. I waited until the album was released, then had to wait until payday to hit the record shop. My other dilema was the truck Im driving didnt have a stero, not to worry headed for the local junk yard and got what I was looking for ($10). Few hours,fuses, and a pair of 35 year old Pioneer TS-6904 speakers and I was Rockin. Been listen to it since, I say the boys have done it again. Take care yall Leonard_50

Hay,Hay All.....Happy Saturday.............

@ L_50.................Play that lil PONY just a little louder..................Can't hear ya............

This jury member says.............

The CD has been played more than just a few tymes...not overly knocked out with it...EXPECTED alot more....

The video....Not really what I wanted...

I had the illusion of a HOBO on the rails or something like that..."LAST OF A DYIN BREED"....

and in my minds eye....

the last shot of the video should have been Gary walking into the sunset, guitar slung over his shoulder.....

The new ZZ Top CD is more like I expected from a Hall of Fame Rock and Roll Band!!!!!!!!!!!!

Looking for the next SUMMIT............
