    Anyone know who the masked guitarist was? I have a suspicion but may be totally wrong. I once saw this person guest with another band, sitting on a stool towards the back just like here.

    Cheap Trick without Bun E Carlos is like the Beatles without Ringo. Sure someone else can provide the beat, but it just ain’t the same.

    I met them after a club show in Houston back in the day. We were so drunk they commented on how drunk we were. We couldnt remember where we parked and reported the car stolen , then found it and somehow made it home.

    If you haven’t, buy ‘The Rockford’ album 2006 and this new one I’ll get somewhere.
    The Rockford Album along with Ray Davies release in 2006 proved that Rock will never die.
    I have their Christmas Album so I’m crossing my fingers Cheap Trick’s newest will be the best yet.

    They exemplify rock and roll. They sound the same and better than the 1980s, and a lot better than most of todays music.

    I can still remember the first time I heard them: it was 1979 in San Antonio and some guy put on “Surrender”. I could not get enough. I have seen them live and they are electric. After seeing this, I would see them again. Robin and Rick, if you read this come out to San Diego this summer. The Observatory is a great venue.
