DaReba when you talk about professionals showing up at the showdown, u might think of nhl playoff game seven, world series, super howl pressure. Setting up a festival where you must entertain 90k heady , obsessed , longing( Jerry and the dead show supprt group was very missed at this point still) fans and friends who've travelled from all over, begged their family ( as I did ) to use their credit cards to get tix to this mass exodus, let alone the amount of crew it took to put this 2 day extravaganza on.. There was alot of pressure the boys to deliver...

Top 10 Chalkdust opener

The Bathtub that follows is probably the most danceable I've ever heard. Fish and Mike groove so hard Trey Just rocks a sweet riff and Page is the ryhthm guitar hero, but Treys lick that the band locks onto is one of the greats of the year. Fish shows how in the pocket he can get. So awesome!! I remember not being able to take in what what was going on at the time lol I was never happier as I was at Clifford Ball. Must listen for sure..

Solid, Perfect Ya MAr!! perfect summer song and boy were people happy!!

AC/DC is solid and fun. Trey and the boys take us on a ride that shows how tight and aware they were at the moment. Superb playing.

A beautiful Esther follows.

Now you really have to have been there for this Divided Sky becaues the sun was going down right behind the stage. it was friggin beautiful. A perfect song at a perfect time on a perfect day!!
