was blowing in with a fury, they cleared out the upper seats, thunderstorms
were headed our way, and JB's gig was cut short. They were tearing the stage
down around the last performers as they played. Notice that during ZZTop's
gig, the stage is absolutely bare - the banners are all gone, and their
beards are whipping in the wind. There was supposed to be a finale, with all
the performers doing a huge jam, but it just never happened.

the format is.  But it was truly an event I feel privileged to have

with a new appreciation....
