Notes: Live Performance of ‘Born In The USA’ (Paul does mention “Springsteen getting his hair curled” in the ‘It’s Hard To Wave In Handcuffs’ demo). ‘Whiping Post’ is smoking - the band play it all the way through and Paul wails. Has there ever been a band that plays a more varied set of covers? In the same show? An unlike some of the early drunken disasters, most songs are played all the way through. An attendee in the front row is  wearing a “Where’s Bob?” shirt and is readily flipped off by Tommy.


  1. Anyone got a copy of this? I'm playing lead guitar on Whipping Post.

  2. lights went on halfway through wipping post and the band left the stage. Mats came out for dial and chilton about 15 minutes later with about twenty people left in the house- glad I was one of them
