I'm not in charge of keeping track of where TC lives, but i do know for a fact that he and several other people were flown in from SF to do this. He wasn't the only "celebrity" to make an appearance.
there was no accommodation quote directed towards you. (chuck)
TC wasn't there to do solo, that's not how it was set up and that's not what he requested. Of course i arranged for everyone to get their turn to jam and of course TC got extended time in all of the songs we played. I think that should be a given, why imply otherwise?
TC's originals are great. We would have played some of them for him but we had, literally, a 5-day notice and no time to add new material.
Like i said before, we didn't handle the booking, logistics or promo. This show was set up by...well, a guy i know who knows TC. There is a story behind how this all happened, but i don't wish to make that public.
Had that all been handled in a different manner then there would have been a few hundred heads down there to see us, but that's not how it happened and i had no control of the event.
you've no need to apologize for anything, you could have made the responsible decision by not "stirring the pot" so to speak.
look ma, i can put emoticons in my posts too!
Blast you for referencing "Hello Cleveland" before i did. I'm in the middle of screwing with this new wireless receiver all week long and got caught up with it while replying, consequently forgetting about the Spinal Tap interjection.
neither i, nor TC or my bandmates wore any spandex during the gig.
there was a funny little side story about something that happened that night with TC that you would all get a chuckle (no pun) out of, but leave it to a certain someone to change the subject. sheesh.
