The following photos are courtesy of Johnnie and Sherri Wahr, who were so generous as to send them to me and allow their use for this page to share with fellow McD supporters. That said, I'd like to here extend Johnnie and Sherri my sincere thanks.
"Okay, let's get this show on the road... Oh yeah, we are on the road!"
"So arm yourself with my love...
"I know you're not that happy with the way
"The judges, they're in recess...
"What runs through your head, it seems
"Familiarity breeds contempt...
"I wander the graveyards of my mind...
"I don't want to hear any complaints...I've been on the road for...a whole...uh, well, let me think...hmm, yeah, it's been one whole DAY already!"
On which note, we skip ahead from the very first day outside Chicago to the very last...
The Lizard Lounge
The show was opened by Boston native and McD friend, James O'Brien...
...along with his bandmates, Joe (drums) and Jordan (bass)...
...who clearly appear to be quite enthusiastic accompanists!
And next up..."Wait a minute...where am I again? Oh yeah, Boston...so what the heck is my van doing in CT?!?!"
Ah well, that's another matter for another time....right now...time to ROCK!!!
"Tell me, tell me true...
"He woke up near Damascus gate
"Jesus, I can't seem to find you here...
"Seen the gates of the kingdom from Lucifer's
"20 Miles South of Nowhere,
And, speaking of "me and mine"...a few after show shots with Michael and "his"...his band, his fans, his friends, etc...
