Reports Kevin: AMAZING show!!! Blew last night’s out of the water!! They played “No Way” for the only the 4th time ever tonight!! Last played Mon Sep 07, 1998 at Virginia Beach. They played their new song Supersonic, but changed all the lyrics in dedication to the former Supersonics. Ed said this was the band’s 50th show in Seattle. Mentioned his daughter’s birthday tomorrow, same as Bruce Springsteen. Nothing political tonight except for pleading with KeyArena to let folks have beers in their seats. You’ll have to try and find this on Youtube, or get the bootleg when it comes out in a couple weeks.
A note from me about “Supersonic”: Sound guy extraordinaire Mike Corvin, who some of you will remember from Hell’s Kitchen, reports that he was on site with members of legendary Tacoma garage-rock band, the Sonics. And another friend tells me that Eddie Vedder actually incorporated lyrics to one of their songs. Can anyone who was there confirm this?
