  1. Cain’s…I saw Ernest Tubb there in ’74…..I bet they sold 56 tickets. Train Wreck tour. Phil will take a hit in the pocket. Yes, the album sucks, file under blunder or better yet in Vito Bratta’s closet.

    1. I always love a good Vito Brata reference. Still wondering when he’s going to be in Jack Russell’s Great White.

  2. Vito, like Mike, came out of White Lion with peanuts. I’m sure he’ll reform White Lion for the tour of indian casinos with Quiet Riot and Cinderella in ’14. Bars with Jack? I’m sure Jack likes Jack and bar gigs.
