Re: (OT) A toast to SRV



Absolutely one of the best concerts ive ever seen:  SRV at Veterans Memorial in 
Columubs Ohio, 1985 - Soul to Soul tour.  I was in the front row and he really 
tore it up.  I saw him a couple of other times on subsquent tours, including 
with Jeff Beck, and he was always on fire.  a big loss.
