PRE-SHOW RITUAL: "The only thing I really do is wash my hands. I know that sounds crazy, but I can't stand playing if I can't wash my hands first."

Hey, Skip. You guys sound

Hey, Skip. You guys sound awesome but I had no doubt that you would. Congratulations! I can think of no one who deserves the recognition more. Great band, super musician, awesome friend, and awesome father. Seeing Colin reminds me of you when we were younger. What a cutie!

Hope you guys can come to Atlanta soon.

Love and kisses from your 7th grade girlfriend!
