It was so freaking hot, plastic cups, warm beer, 2,100 good folks from Iowa, packed in the Surf Ballroom to hear Ted Nugent do Stranglehold again . . . the band was great - vocals spot on - the Gibson solid body and the Byrdland was shreddin' every note . . . for a 60 some year old guy holding a machine gun - not bad. Not bad at all. He lost the coin toss and had to ride the bus.
