A nice tribute to Bill during the 5/30 DeadCo show, with a Ripple to start the second set and visuals during drums and the encore. :bigheart

^^^That's so cool!! I always got such a kick out of seeing them near each other at shows, and it happened on several occasions. Great catch, KC! :thumbsup

Bill discussing how he met and introduced Dick Latvala to the band. I never knew this until today when my friend sent this to me:

I must say that Bill looks much happier than Stranger, what song were they playing Samba in the Rain?
