Fantastic read, subby; thank you!

A fun (and possibly little known?) fact; the "Hello Nasty" album title came from the greeting of the receptionist at their publicity firm, which is named Nasty Little Man. When you call them, the person answering the phone says, "Hello, Nasty." Fun stuff.

I did a quick search for this promo sticker from my collection and didn't find it anywhere. Thought some of y'all might dig seeing it.

Thanks for sharing, I haven't watched too much footage of them performing. That was a great show, it must have been incredible to see live.
