You know you're a freak when you consider that high praise :-). (I
like yours about "the White Stripes still aren't your favorite band"!)

Wo. 3,000 miles?!? Props to Mr. Steve! I was at that show. I left
a conference in San Diego three days early to make the Vancouver show
(the few people I told why I was leaving thought I was a lunatic, or
worse). Flew to Seattle, drove to Vancouver without making prior
arrangements, so I wound up getting a room on the second floor of
what turned out to be a disco on the first floor. I was supposed to
have been interviewed on a Vancouver radio broadcast about the show
but I called in 5 minutes too late for my slot. Saw the show after
going through the usual (at the time) process of buying a 7th-row
seat from a scalper outside for $100 or so...the venue roof looked
like a giant inflated balloon...some people came down to sit beside
me and were giddy at being so close to the stage before the show even
started. I seem to remember Roger saying something disparaging about
the acoustics. Pete was suffering from his hand impalement a couple
nights prior but still did a great show...after the show, went back
to the hotel where I felt and heard the disco until mere sound could
keep me awake no more.

Nice. You know you're a freak when neither money, family, civilians,
fate, rain, sleet nor gloom of night prevent you from having your ass
in the venue at showtime. Although I do know one sad story about a
fellow Who freak who actually missed a show because the shuttle train
at the airport froze on the tracks between terminals and trapped him
until he missed his plane.
