aybesea So, sets 25 & 26 along with encore 13 got played on this evening. This 26 set / 13 encore show that lasted 19 days was absolutely stellar in every conceivable way. I can't even nitpick anything! Seriously.

I've been saying for many years that this is my favorite band (at least after the Touch of Grey thing ruined that avenue). And then there came a day, sometime in 97 when I said that this is truly my favorite band (even if you compare them to prime time GD). And now there comes a day when I say that I've just witnessed the absolute coolest thing that has EVER happened in music.

I mean, can you picture if Beethoven had shown up one night and played all 9 symphonies for the first time all at once? That's the magnitude that we're talking about here. Or if the Beatles had debuted all 13 albums at the same time.

And this time around, I'm smart enough to know that what I just witnessed was serious history. I don't need to wait until long after the event to say, "Damn, that was really good!"
