Fanatic! As I write this, I am in Antwerp, Belgium, in an enormous production hall, where we have been rehearsing for the Gutterdämmerung rollout tomorrow night in London. We will run through everything here one more time and then get on the train and head to London. I won’t be there for long but it’s always great to be there.

The band powering the show is Iggy’s band and it’s great to hang out with them. I met them several weeks ago at Riot Fest in Chicago. All really good guys and great players.

Upcoming Events

By the time this broadcast airs on Sunday, I will be in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The next few days will be a bit of a blur, to say the least.

Therefore, it’s a good thing this show was done in advance! It is a great show, full of a lot of the records we have been following lately, as well as paying attention to the fact that it is November.

I am actually getting some fall-like weather out here. We have had a little rain, some overcast skies and great smelling air. Too bad we’re stuck in a windowless box for 9 hrs. a day doing things over and over, but that’s the nature of production.

We hope you enjoy the show. I have played it a few times through and think it turned out well.

Until next week, listen to a lot of music and STAY FANATIC!!!
