Arizona "Saw you/him? in Phoenix five or so years ago. It is, in fact, hell here--but would you please consider swinging through again sometime? I teach high school, and for years I've silenced the guitar-worshiping lads with your acoustic performance of ""Vincent Black Lightning."" They are, in a word, dumbfounded.
"November 30, 2012"
