We had a great week of rehearsals and a surprise visit and send-off from bill berry, as you know he stopped by the studio with a chefs hat, sushi, spicy pappadams with chutney [his favorite backstage snack from the old days] and then invited us out to the farm the next day. We all had a great time there. It was hectic getting out of town as it always is. But the weather was forgiving and I already miss summer in athens. The songs sound massive.
