  Sat. 1/14/12 9:30am James in ATL:

Bob, Thanks for another Tommy show. The thing I love about NRBQ is they take more chances on stage in one night than many bands take in their entire career.
  Sat. 1/14/12 9:55am john:

"Roll Call" is such a beautiful song.
  Sat. 1/14/12 10:11am Ben:

  Sat. 1/14/12 10:19am moe:

my daughter loves the frogs, thanks...
  Sat. 1/14/12 10:20am Josh Norton:

The instrumental version of Smackaroo is on the Through The Eyes Of A Quartet compilation on Demon, released in the UK.
That sound you referred to is a chainsaw, played by Phil Collison, a member of the NRBQ road crew.
  Sat. 1/14/12 10:22am Jeff:

Listening in Rio de Janeiro
Rest in peace, Tommy
I'll be at Iridium on Tuesday to see Terry and the boys
Thanks Bob

I have a DVD of a live 1982 perf in KY - called Derbytown (as in KY Derby) - long live the Q
  Wed. 1/18/12 9:44am Robbie:

Thanks for such a great tribute show Bob. I have a VHS tape of NRBQ Playing with John Sebastian at the Wax Museum in DC in 1982. I think NRBQ released an audio CD of that show, but my VHS tape has the entire performance. I remember at one poit John Sebastian fell backwards over a monitor during one song, and got up and said "What a pratfall".
  Fri. 1/20/12 4:25pm Vicki Clark:

Thanks Bob, this playlist is a terrific survey of NRBQ and friends, and a fitting tribute to Tom. Saw NRBQ Jan 13 2012 at VA Beach, band was high energy and sounded great.
  Mon. 2/20/12 11:01pm Gina Roma:

Great show and props to Robbie from the wax museum and the awesome john s comment- I was there too and watched the 'prat fall' Such a fab comment!
