"99 1/2," Cheap Trick
First time I saw this band guitarist Rick Neilson wore a sweater adorned with skulls and a ballcap. He talked about how they were going to play a lot of hits that night, and he commented about popular music in 1989. He praised Aerosmith, INXS, AC/DC...and then he quipped that this 'Tiffany and Debby Gibson should be taken to the fucking K-mart for a full refund!'. Cheers erupted. He continued, 'cause that's some really BAD SHIT!'. He pulled his cap down and glared comically to more audience cheering. He glared and then opined some more, 'It's BAAAAAD SHIT! And we're here to deliver some solid rock'n'roll for you tonight'. And did they EVER!

"99 1/2," Cheap Trick
Guitarist Rick Neilson often flicks guitar picks into the crowd while he plays his guitars. He also scoops into a bucket and chucks more picks into the audience, making people scramble to catch them for souvenirs. The picks always are decorated in some fashion. I got 2 picks from the band from different shows and they're never the same design twice.

"99 1/2," Cheap Trick
Guitarist Rick Neilson has some unique guitars. One double-neck has the body built to resemble himself (the necks are his 'legs'). He has an 8-neck guitar that he plays usually just for the song 'Surrender'. Needless to say, it's bulky, massive and difficult! He plays other strange guitars too.

"99 1/2," Cheap Trick
Bassist Tom Peterson has a custom-designed bass guitar that features 3 thinner strings bunched close together instead of the usual 4 thick strings. He came my way at the edge of the stage and held it out and I ran my fingers down on the strings. Yowch!

"555 to the 666," Smithereens
I've seen the Smithereens play twice and got to meet them too. I asked guitarist Jim Babjak how the album 'Smithereens 11' got it's name. He said it's based on the Frank Sinatra/Sammy Davis Jr./Dean Martin movie 'Oceans 11' from 1960. The album cover art is based on the paperback book adaption of that flick, with appropriate alterations made. He told me all this himself.

"555 to the 666," Smithereens
While recording the lyrics for the song "Groovy Tuesday" singer Pat Dinizio sang "design in blue" and everyone in the studio erupted in laughter. This little snippet was isolated and inserted at the song's end backwards. Producer Don Dixon did it as a joke and the band liked it.
