Postcard from Vancouver 2003
Hard to believe the tour is only 6 weeks away — in some ways it feels like it has already begun! I am on the plane home from Vancouver (not nonstop–oh well) having just spent a few days up there with the guys. Several things are going on: finishing up the new material for the best of — got to get it done before pushing off for the shows in Europe; rehearsing with the expanded band (the ancillary performers Scott, Ken and Bill Rieflin) to re-learn and prepare a lot of songs for the tour, and otherwise prepare for the upcoming hectic phase — artwork, video, merchandise, lights, personnel, etc , etc. It is all coming together great (we think), and by the time we hit the Netherlands, we should be off and running.
