From Sam: anyways, everyone enjoyed their heads on a stick, as did many fans in the bar and around the arena. nathan got a chuckle again, too. shook lee dicksons hand b4 the show. he asked if EC knew about the heads. i said no, and would he like to give EC one? he politely mentioned he would prefer not to be seen waving one backstage, sort of the same response i got from tour manager peter jackson in london (some brits just dont get my sense of humor i guess-tony edser and bluescrazy dave excluded). more on the heads later... my personal highlight was dancing with the mrs to WT (the only ones doing so as far as i could see), and then we saw ourselves on the video screen! if that wasnt enuff, we snuck up to the front from our sixth row seats during layla when security was dealing with some people behind us, and another camera guy put us up again with the heads on a stick on the screen. needless to say, a lot of people were looking to buy the heads after the show. unfortunately for them, they only go to true fans from the digest i have the pleasure of meeting in my travels.
From Mark: As if to cap off the evening, I asked Lee for a pick, and trying to be a little lighthearted given the problems he'd been having, asked him if he wanted my "EC head on a Stick" ... his reply, "not in a million f-----g years". Hmmmm, maybe if I made him an EC dartboard that might go over better, I made myself one with a picture of my boss and it's much cheaper than therapy.
From Mark: We decided not to take our "heads on a stick" into the show but they did get us good parking - pulled into a "reserve" lot next to the venue by mistake and were asked if we had a pass, one of our party said "no, but we have one of THESE does this count?" - they said "heck, you are so funny you can park here!"
