> Roger the work horse.
> I thought he was spot on.
> Tania thought he was spot on.
> Stu and Lori thought he was spot on.
> Mike and Berry thought he was spot on.
> He was......fucking spot on.
> What a great voice, with power, passion, and also going off with the mic.
> Near the end Roger gave us this insight

> freezing my bullocks off! I'm ready for Spring!"
> > An absolutely ROARING and long ovation for the mightiest voice in rock.
> Roger hit his WGFA scream the best I've *ever* heard him. His voice is
> always strong, but this scream came as close to mimicking the actual WN

> After "the scream" the crowd cheered so loud, specifically designed to
> show Roger their appreciation for nailing that...just for them.
> Roger knew he nailed it.
> > It's official....Stu welled-up to Tea and Theatre!
