A Man in my Shoes Runs a Light, All the Papers Lie Tonight, But Falling Over You, Is the News of the Day

Ga Ga Goo Goo, for the Counting Crows and the Goo Goo Dolls at VWA, my old stompin' ground. Backdrop was great, hangin' out in the cheap seats as it rained, which would be not that great, but since it hasn't rained in forever, it added to the enjoyment of the evening.

Goo Goo Dolls and Counting Crows both played to the audience, one point Mr Goo took a mexican flag from the audience and draped himself in it, while Mr Crow gave his two cents about voting and aids, and the list seemed to go on and on.

It sure was an evening for 'soft rock' as the sign depicts, just look at big ol' mean bob lookin' like a pretty boy in front of the sign.

Ran into Kurtis Pohl on the evening, and he HAD to have been there for the chicks he was with, throughout the night I bashed the Goo Goo Dolls, and as a spoof I would look him in the eyes and say things like 'And I'd Give Up Forever to Touch You', in fine goo fashion. I remember y'all girls trying to get me to buy y'all a beer, tough luck, but I'm glad y'all had luck with Kurt.

The umbrellas came out, made for some great visuals of the place. The highlight of the evening was the Crows playing 'The Ghost in You' --- and come on, you have to play Mr Jones EVERY F*CKIN' NIGHT OF THE TOUR, that just like going to see Skynard and they don't play Freebird!?!?

Maybe some other time I'll go on with a trip down memory lane about these tunes as I jammed them in High School.

All in all, it was a great vibe to be back in San Antonio (did I just say that?) -- A toast to my homie Steve, still escorting the rich people in the VIP.
