First of all I want to give my most sincere thanks to the two folks in the front row who did not show up to claim their seats. My daughter and I thank you from the bottom on our peachy hearts.

A few of the usual suspects at Pole G. I have a shot taken between sets that included the late-arriving Yankweeds, but I will have to post it later.






The stars of last nights show...





Men at work...


We were good weren't we!!!





Gregg is usually bathed in low light, so it's very hard to get good pics of him... obviously this was during Melissa.




I rarely get to see Butch or Jaimoe, since they are usually hidden behind cymbals, so this was a great shot for me.

Good pictures. Have to say Gregg still doesn't look a 100%. You can definely tell he lost a lot of weight, and is bit haggard looking.

Alan, so you moved to the front row instead...

Nice group picture of a fabulous bunch! The rest are equally excellent and appreciated...

some of the "haggard" look is due to the poor lighting. Gregg lost weight a couple of years ago, although additional weight loss due to treatment would not be unexpected.

Greetings absnj - It was great meeting you and the rest of the bunch last night!
Nice to meet your daughter too.
Thanks for the pic's.
Dude, you grabbed front row - there's a nice little blessing I'm sure you both loved.
I've already been in touch with Gail via e-mail.
Since we're neighbors, my wife and I might get together with her and her hubby some time in the future.
Great show, great new friends to hang with before.
I'm sorry the day is over and I'm feeling tired and working at my computer today.
Hey, you want to play, you gotta pay as the cliche goes......
Take care,
.......Al war

In his interview, Gregg said he lost weight, was on the South Beach diet and is currently lifting weights....glad he is out there again doing what he loves to do....

Ditto, Alan. Would love a copy too! Happy you and Ali (sp) were able to get up front, the pics are great.

Always a pleasure hanging out before the show with the usual suspects at the beach. Every year we meet new friends, too, this year we added Alwar and son, and hankpipes to the "G"crew. So nice to meet you , and I hope we'll be seeing more of you!

Looking forward to seeing the pic with the Yankweeds, Alan! Although it was too brief, it was great to meet and talk with them.

Gregg is lucky he looks that good and has hair still..... the 24 week TX does not take as much of a toll as the 48 or in my case the last one, 56 weeks. You can tell his hair thinned from it, mine was so bad I got a crew cut, we could be marvelling at GA in short hair so it is good he fared decent in that area, but you can see the effect. It all comes back.... and the Ribavirin stays in your body 6 months, and the Interferon is a hugely powerful drug too, so he still has months of mend, although incrementally he is probably far over half there.... good job GA!

Hey, Barb.

It was great meeting you and the gang last night.
Me and my son, Matt enjoyed all of the great pre-show company with all of you.
We felt very welcome and I would have nothing but kind words to say about the entire "G" crew!

I've got my live cd from last night at my desk right now and as I was writing you,
just ended Les Brers and into The Sky Is Crying. I wish I could do a virtual re-wind
and be back in the moment! But this is good alongside my workload.

OK, gotta go listen to the blues leads over again!
