Re: sloan and slayer

I remember the "No Cover Ever" days.  I also remember wicked shows there 
with Sloan and ET.  Hell, I even remember the old Grawood on the third 
floor, and 12 pool tables in the present 'wood space.  I even worked 
there.  Man, my precious blond locks are starting to turn a touch of grey.

Please Mike, some of us love having our time wasted.  I'd like to at least 
hear this one privately.

I have a poster from a gig at The Church which I failed to attend called 
Rock Power Night with Sloan, Weasel Faced Judge, Leonard Conan, etc.  The 
graphic is made up entirely of repeated cutouts of Gene Simmons from the 
Destroyer cover (see the back of CM's bass for details) including a wild 
spiral pattern made up of repeated applications of his spiked demon boots. 
A treasured collectible.
