Date: Wed, 14 May 1997 Steven L. Cain Just had the opportunity to check out the new & improved site. Floods of memory rush back in from the first night that Steve Etherton, Randy Felton & myself first came upon the band at the Kove. Three high school hippy boys who loved the blues & Capt. Beefhart,Sun Ra, & Frank Zappa, we were astounded by the sound we found right under our noses that night & 27 years later the thrill, the adrenaline rush, the cathartic therapy the band's music provides for me is still as fresh & wonderful as that first night I heard them. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the band & especially Bob & Jack for all the years of pure listening pleasure they have provided me w/. It truly is a therapeutic experience for me, a Release I need in this crazy overwrought place we call America. Thank you for making my life richer, & for your dedicated refusal to compromise your muse & vision. As I stated in the letter I wrote to the Scene after the controversy of the stolen equipment, your music & vision have been a blessing, & continue to challenge & inspire me. I hope you all got a chance to read the letter, as it was my way of saying thanks for all the years of pleasure your art has provided me w/. If you didnít get a chance to read it, (I did show it to Jack a little while back while you were playing in N. Canton) it would more than likely be in the Scene's online site. It was printed in the June 13-19th '96 issue. I will look forward to your next visit to Canton, as it is not as easy for me to get to Kent as it once was, & am also happy to see you have another regular venue back in Kent, which remains the ultimate vechile for me to hear the band, I will try to check out the Blue Moon after the weather breaks. Again thanks for the vision that is 15-60-75 Steve Cain Canton, Oh
