Comments: O.K. so I ordered these tickets through the Aerosmith fan club. All I knew. pulling up to the gig, was that I had two tickets somewhere on the floor. I had to pick them up at will call. So, when Rhonda and I eventually ended up at Copp’s, we dutifully made our way to will call.

“Can I get the credit card you used to buy these tickets please?”


Slight pause.

“Hmm, these tickets are pretty good.”

Do tell.

Well damn, our tickets were second row stage right. Which probably explains why I ended up with a handful of Rick’s guitar picks. We found ourselves right in front of Tom Hamilton; the same Tom Hamilton that I had read would frequently toss out his rubber thumb appendage to those in the first few rows that knew about such a thing. I motioned for Tom to toss me out a thumb; he shrugged and indicated that he had none left; I shrugged and asked “Please”. He shrugged and said “I’m not kidding.” I smiled and indicated that I understood.

The life of a rock ‘n’ roll fan.

The gig itself was excellent. They played four songs from their then current release, Honkin’ On Bob. Five, I suppose, if you include Stop Messin’ Around. That was a song Joe had sang live for years by then but had only ever recorded a studio version of it for HoB. Hell, I was happy hearing Shame, Shame, Shame; a fantastic song very much in the vein of Big Ten Inch Record.
