Well, maybe JP wasn't on the Island that night...whoever it was, I would be thrilled to have Dave MacIsaac or anyone of that calibre at my back in such a location.

Does remind me of a time I was invited to play when they opened our brand new ballpark--I went onstage tuned in DADGAD with a song ready to go, then realized there was a six-piece hardcore country band playing with me. OK, I says to myself, rapidly retuning, and falling back on my no-brainer (hate that term), Summer Wages.

I do think it's pretty unusual that someone who's that good just played and played and never took a break...I guess that's how he got so good!

But ya missed seeing Archie Fisher in Perth, Marion. I spose being in CB has some compensations....I guess.
