BraveWords has an illustrated review of the band’s first gig of 2022:

    To be honest all that talk about retirement and the guy are old is just makes me sick in the stomach.

    Do what you like at any age and who the ***k tells you what to do with your life.
    If you love DP family tree members then be happy for them that they all well and happy.
    Peace 👍
