It wasn't "interrupted".

The show was already over, and the audience were already on their way out.

My first real experience with Cheap Trick was when they opened for Night Ranger (I was a dumb teenager; so sue me). They were about a bajillion times better than the NR show (I know now; of course they were). Been a fan ever since.

/In Color is a kick ass album.

First saw them in 1979 - been a fan ever since.  Live they have always been one of the best.  Zander's voice is the shiat.

I'd forgotten that song. And, yes, he was still downright spacey, borderline catatonic in some recent interviews. At least he showed signs of life in your clip. Wish him/them the best. Always thought they should've gotten bonus points for covering an Ian Hunter song. Also think they were shouldered with too much of the blame for the fire.

I write songs! And I have also done Echo & the Bunnymen covers. Wanna start a band? Difficulty: No listicle songs.

Thanks, but I can barely play a radio. Learned three chords when I was younger and forgot two of them. I can play one hell of an open E, though...
