I gotta say, they may be getting a little long in the tooth (mid 50s) but they put on one of the tightest rockinest shows I've seen in a long time. ALL of them are on top of their game, the band's chemistry was great and it looked like they were having a great time. (The exact opposite of the terrible Police show I saw this summer.)
I also got to spend the night with some of the funnest and funniest fuckers I know. Thank's for a great night boys! My eyes were watering from laughter on more than one occasion.

Billboard Magazines review of last night's MSG show
