Hi Wagger,
Nice job on the accuracy of the set lists. Sometimes the tune names are so abbreviated, even I can't tell what they are...I can tell you that playing in Mike's band has been a total blast. He is unlike anyone I've ever met and I like his loose style. My favorite shows this time around were Toronto, Woodstock, Asheville, Birmingham, Jacksonville, Ann Arbor, and parts of many others.

Thanks a ton Todd. Incidentally, I was hoping to contact you because I would love to do an interview with you for The Wagger, an exclusive, about your experience on this tour. Please drop me a line when you get a chance: phishwagger@gmail.com

Thanks again for leaving a comment on the Blog. ---Daniel
