YES! I got to see them once here in Atlanta in 1996. The girl I was seeing at the time bought me a ticket and I am SO glad that I had a chance to see them. I'd been a fan for years and just never got the chance before. It was something like 12 shows from their last.
That is an awesome story!

Nostalgia just ainít what it used to be.
