Foggy G, "The Songs That Were Played," We're Only In It For The Touring

RASHID (GLORIA)- In response to an audience member requesting "Louie Louie", Frank takes a poll to find out if the audience would actually like to hear "Louie Louie". When they loudly cheer "No!", Frank replies "How about Gloria?", and without hesitation, the band tears into the song. I don't know if Brock knew the original lyrics or not, but all he really sings is "Rashid" over and over again. Then Frank informs us that it is the band's duty to report to the audience on the events of the previous night in the hotel, and that this is such a report (which he refers to as the "Booger Bear report"). He then tells us a short little story about "one of the girls in the band", a bag of Fritos, the Hitachi penguin, and a vibrator. Upon concluding this strange and somewhat amusing tale, Frank instructs the band to "take it away", and they dutifully finish the song.

[Cleveland, March 5, 1988] Then to soundcheck, which...a lot of people in the band were very tired from the bus ride and not getting enough sleep and everything, and the energy at soundcheck was pretty low. Frank was worried. But we managed to practice "I Can't Get No Satisfaction," "Gloria," a little bit of "Last Train To Clarksville," "Norweigan Wood," "Honey Don't You Want A Man Like Me," and the tough bits of "Alien Orifice" which the horn guys and Ed requested to play.
