Thanks to everyone involved with the tour! Thanks for coming to the show, or shows if you did! We feel grateful to be able to still do this after almost 30 years, and we don’t take it for granted. Thanks to SPIN for letting us write the tour diary. It was fun to do. It was funny seeing people getting pissed off at us for shit talking certain rock stars. All of what we said is true! People don’t like the truth. They get defensive and weird when you say Billie Joe is a big baby for throwing a rock star tantrum, or that Rob Zombie is a total dick! It’s fucking true! I’m one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet! I say it’s true! Oh well, why believe us? We should just tell lies like Bob Dylan does. It’s more interesting than the truth anyway.
