Bob Walkenhorst, Saturday, April 2, part 2

(posted at the Rainmakers message board)

Two thoughts brought up from reading Jim's post.

One, Bob shared some interesting thoughts while introducing John Northern. He said that back when he was younger someone, referring to a song he sang, asked if he made that up, and he was like "no, I wrote that". And Bob said that when he asked John if he plays with a band, John say he likes to play by himself because he likes to "make stuff up". And Bob said that when John said that, it sounded okay. So, Bob said he's not a songwriter but a song-maker-upper. :)

Er... and I seem to have forgotten the 2nd thought while writing up the first.

Jim, thanks for the clarification on Bob's comment during "Information". Also, nice pictures. :) [Note: From what Jim posted, Bob's reference to the upcoming vote in Kansas was indirect]

Oh yeah, now I remember. I remembering thinking that the music sounded heavy. I'm not sure if it was something about Saturday night in particular, or if it was just because it's been so long since we'd heard the 4 piece (since January 21st -- 10 weeks). While I wasn't quite sure if that was a good thing, it wasn't a bad thing.
