Up early in Madison, intend to ride my bike, but don't see the bus anywhere near the hotel. Oh well, read USA Today instead.

Get to the venue and receive a call from everybody's favorite wacky rock star Rick Nielsen. He's coming down to the show with his daughter and friends.

Set-up, etc. Rick and Co. come down about 6:30, they're met outside by our drummer and escorted to catering for dinner. I hang and talk with Rick as he eats and then it's time to go look at the guitars... As we're walking around, Rick knows everyone, since his management office was based in Madison for a number of years.

Rick watches the show from my guitar world and we have fun throwing picks at various band and crew and general goofing around. A good time is had by all. Thanks Rick.

Here's a pic of Rick and Jason White, who I tech for. (Jason is sporting his Pirate Hat for the song "King for a Day")

Aftershow, we get pies from one of my favorite pizza joints, Glass Nickel Pizza Company. Glad I requested it!! It was delicious. If we had been in Chicago I would have ordered from Rick's place called Piece.
