yesterday was 16 years since Sinatra died. I'll always remember it as the same night as the last Seinfeld and then two days later Wells pitched his perfect game. Wild couple of days.

Wow. I remember the Wells game but not the other two moments.

I booked my band into a place in Hartford just before we played some dates on one of the HORDE tours. Turns out it was the same night as the last Seinfeld episode. Weird night - the "difficult" owner made us go on early, when no one was there, and then wouldn't let us play after Seinfeld was done, when there was a crowd. The place had various touring bands and the odd classic rock outfit - Foghat was going to play a few weeks later. Despite the owner, the guy who booked the place liked us and told me to call next week for a return gig. I did, and he told me the owner turned the place into strip joint - that night - and that there were no more bands. I had to ask - "what about the bands that were booked?" "Canceled 'em." "Even Foghat?!" "Yup." Oh well - weird that I don't remember it was around Sinatra dying.
