July 2, 2012 – Meijer Gardens Amphitheater, Grand Rapids, MI

Remind me to make sure the steps in back of my drum riser are secured before i do anything stupid like I did at this show. Going onstage, I ran around the keyboard riser, made a sharp left turn , and was hoping to hit the 2nd step of my riser and bound into place behind the kit. Fail. The stairs went one way and I went the other, taking a header that pretty well chewed up both my shins . Blood. I cut my right hand. More blood. Snare drum head- now red and white. Lovely way to kick off the night. This is a nice little outdoor theater inside the Botanical Gardens which, I hear, are beautiful. A very hot and steamy night, but somehow I get the feeling that from here on out it will be a very hot and steamy summer. I can look forward to losing a lot of weight every night. The crowd was excellent, on their feet from the beginning. Time for more ice.
