I met up with Fraser at the merchandise booth. First thing he told me was he wished he could take a hot bath. Told him hello again and that geef said hello. That got him going a bit. He seems like a nice lad. I told him he needs to stop pooping on the bus, because that just isn't the proper thing for a merchant selling wares. We laughed a bit over that.

The Scottish Rite Auditorium was built in 1938. The sound quality and accoustics were better than last night at Town Hall. This place had resonance...the sound carried well throughout the venue.

My guess is that the place holds about 1,000 people, and there were about 300-400 people there. It looked like most of the fans were there for The Zombies. Arthur kind of laughed a bit when he first came out and saw how few people were there, but proceeded to give a great set. I thought they were kickin' tonight...they were tight.

The band seemed more sedate tonight. Mike wasn't as animated nearly as much as last night. I'm thinking the band is seeing the tour coming to its end, and I'll bet they're tired.

After the set, I went back out and harassed Fraser a little more. I thought I'd hang out a while, and sure enough, Arthur and Johnny soon arrived. This time, I got them both to sign my FC LP cover. There was a nice small crowd that soon gathered for autographs. They left soon afterwards. A little while later, Mike came out. He finally put my name to a face, and we sat and chatted for about 15 minutes. The first thing he said to me was he wished he could take a hot bath. Deja vu. Well, whoever saw Monica Lewinsky last night was correct...Mike and Rusty and her are pals. Got Mike to sign my LP.

A little while later, Dave Chapple came out. Chatted with him a little...and got his autograph too. He has a great signature. He didn't say anything about a hot bath.

I waited for Rusty and Daddyo, but they didn't make it. Prolly went back to the bus.

Only side notes I jotted down on the set list are:
A House Is Not A Motel...Echols took lead, and it was great
7 and 7 Is...Got the full effect this time-Mike and Johnny sounding terrific
Red Telephone...Mike's lead was rippin'
Signed DC...same Bluesy version as last night but sounding better
Everybody's Gotta Live/Instant Karma was a real crowd pleaser
Your Mind And We Belong Together..Echols was just killer on lead.
Singing Cowboy...Echols did his Hendrix impersonation. He flipped that guitar over the back of his head, and while playing, he never missed a lick. Pretty cool!
