Rick, you did a 3-hour DK show and I missed it? Dammit, that's what I get for not coming around more often. Any chance you archived it?

Wow, I'm excited. Off to the DK website I go to find out all the details. I wasn't that bowled over by their last couple of outings, so it'll be nice to hear them back into form.

Not to put any constraints on anything, but I wouldn't pick on the old, cheaply produced album covers like "Piper." How much money was sunk into that album cover, $50? The big offenders are the...

I think you're right. On the whole, I'm not too sold on "Baku." Too repetitive and self-derivative. But that may just be me. My son's best friend (15 yrs old and a major metal head) LOVES "Hungry...
