  1. Great show tonight. As John Lennon once said, "If you tried to give Rock and Roll another name, you might call it Chuck Berry." Also, nice job reaching back to find one from the Monks.

  2. Thanks, Allen! Much appreciated! I actually almost included that quote from Lennon here.

    Glad you enjoyed - I appreciate the feedback and support!
