Going crazy with a Purple night

This was my fifth DP show and by far the greatest. The set list was fantastic, the whole band was fantastic, and the crowd got crazy. I will never forget the moment that Ian asked Steve to keep playing Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming – you guys gave us a gift! The whole band was […]

Friday night in Rio de Janeiro…

Buenos Aires: Simply perfect!

Goose bumps in Mexico City
