|Today was day 2 of the attack of the nasty illness. While no new cases were reported, the afflicted trio of Rivers, Pat and the tour manager were still struggling with their flu-style symptoms. Pat woke up feeling really nasty, and asked to be excused from soundcheck so he could sleep. Luckily another drumming Patrick, the one from Ozma, filled in for Pat during soundcheck. The extra rest seemed to help Pat out a lot, and he was ready to turn in a solid set plus a bonus guitar wheedling during the post Surf Wax feedback insanity. Rivers was feeling somewhat better than yesterday overall, while the tour manager struggled thru the day. With luck no one else will get touched by the sickness, and the day off in warm (?) Tampa may do wonders to those coughing up nasty things...
