"Top 10 alltime. I’d put this above panic in the streets "

"Look, I love WSP, been a big fan since the mid-90s. And I love the availability here of the soundboards. However, if you are going to charge an extra three dollars for this show (4 cds) then there should be a three dollar discount for the fall tour shows with ABB since those were only 2 discs. I will purchase anyway and go to as many shows in 2010 as I can, but come on ... Remember, its only us Die-hards who are buying the boards in the first place."

"P.S. I think I woke up around 10:13 New Years Day and I assure you this old world wasn't the same!!!!"

"There is not a whole lot to say about this.....you'll laugh at that statement in a minute.....I was in Athens when they were getting started....saw MANY shows...have followed them around...New Years is my one annual event that MUST NOT be missed....I went to Denver last year and said it was better than the year before in ATL...The first night started with a bug in my juice when someone decided to steal my jacket(a very special one at that!)....(Hundreds of Dead shows along with a host of others) not to mention all of the Panic shows.....I have never had that happen so my mind was a little off if you know what I mean!! As all hardened road warriors do I accepted the reality of the situation and LET IT GO!! On with the show!!! Great sets!!! Great time with friends (Zach - Bryan - Martin,wherever the hell you were) I mean WOW! It ended up being a great warm up show for the experience that was to come...Enough on that! Dec. 31 2009.......started out the day with a little food and beer and waited with a huge smile on my face!! I knew this one was going to be special!!!!** Be patient as I explain.... You see, a couple of years ago I lost a marriage and my health.... I was just shy of being in a wheelchair until the doctors found that my bones were dying and the first step was to replace my hips with titanium new ones....what a blessing...alot of depression.....suicidal thoughts....loss of income etc, etc, life. Panic has helped heal me in many ways! As my friend and I were scouting out our seats ( left of stage 2nd tier)we decided to go get a better look as there were not many people in the arena yet. Let me stop now and say that when I got home my girlfriend (who stayed home but bought me the tickets for Christmas)asked me what the single most impressive thing about the whole experience was.....this is what I said.... As Bryan and I were scouting (left of stage at a great diagonal on the second tier) we ran into the handicapped section were we met a man named John Lee....This man was there alone, in a wheelchair. He had lost the use of his legs in an accident. His resolve and positive attitude about life and this particular experience were unbelievably positive!!!! I knew we were staying there for the night!! Along came another soldier of fortune...a blind man who was there by himself...I was amazed....I hope in reading this you are starting to get a sense of what was coming over me!!... So.....Let's Get Down To Business ... shall we ... Vacation>Expiration Day.........OH SHIT...talk about hitting home!!! The rest was icing. Little Kin.....Blackout.....pick your head up off the floor!!!! Happy new year!!!! So you Wanna" get Somethin' Started.....hmmm....WoW!....and it continued to snowball into what will be an all time great!!Blue moon = Moondance...I mean!!!! The Megablasters were great as always!!!! The tribute songs were an honor to be a part of..R.I.P. Vic.... MJ...a Stevie Wonder song?! No sense in Wondering!....An un believable sequence of events!!!!! Somewhere before the second set break I was handed one of those things "that taste so very, very nasty in my mouth".....and as fate would have it..................They played it!!!!.... I hope that you have stood the test of reading this.....it stands to reason that at least for me this was a very special event!!! Not only for the fantastic musicianship but for those great moments when all things came together to help me see again!! Thank You John Lee!!!! The point is this>>>>it is the people that make the beautiful things happen.....keep believing!!!!"
