I’m grateful to have some Live Action to talk about! It always feels like Summer officially begins for me once the band takes the stage for the first time. I’m looking forward to an amazing summer filled with incredible music and ultimately coming to a climax at Lockn! The journey is sure to be a wild one and I look forward to sharing the experience with y’all! All opinions are always my own and I understand we’ll differ on many things and often. May my words always be received in the manner they’re intended, free from malice and always from a place of love and appreciation. I’m glad we have music to talk about so let’s get things underway! I’ll do my best to write a little more if I get the chance but understand that my time is limited. I’ll also do my best to keep the reviews a little shorter than this one in the future but after all, it’s opening night. I’m looking forward to a great few weeks sharing the experiences with all of you! ROCK AND ROLL!!!

Following the review from Philly the butthurt was widespread. It’s a tradition around here to follow poor reviews with over the top and at times completely unwarranted praise for the greatest musicians that ever lived, playing in the greatest band that ever existed. I will try my best to provide nothing for anyone to get upset about during the course of this review. I will only deliver heaping helpings of abundant “family” kindness regardless of the reality. I hope you’ll be comforted by this review and refer to me only as “Kind Grateful Brother” from now on. Away we go!
