Why I love Cheap Trick - 9
So, while still talking about Heaven Tonight, that album is the very first album to ever utilize a 12 string bass. Seriously. Tom Petersson had been playing 4 strings and 8 strings, but what he really wanted was a 10 or 12 string. 12 strings were kind of unheard of. So, Jol Dantzig of Hamer guitars made him just that. Tom got his 12 string and kicked some a** with it on the song "Heaven Tonight". Some more epicness ensued with the song "Gonna Raise Hell" off of Dream Police. Don't listen to anyone, Tom Petersson invented the 12 string bass and he is the best at it. (Okay, I suppose if you wanted to think otherwise, who am I to stop you?) So, I'm still trying to figure out why in the world he is never mentioned anywhere and is not on lists of the greatest bass players. Anyway, Tom Petersson - amazing bass player.


"Girlfriends" (1994)
"I Want You" (1982)
"Cry Baby" (1994)
"I Can't Take It" (1983)
"Out in the Street" (199 cool - The theme song for "That 70s Show"
"It all Comes Back to You" (1997)
"Way of the World" (1979)
"Baby Loves to Rock" (1980)

The guys hanging out with Dwight Yoakum's band. Where Robin, though?

The Dream Police - they're looking for you, they're waiting for you every single night. Is it driving you insane? Those men inside your brain?
User Image
Checking out the setlist, huh?

And it doesn't get any better than this.

Seriously Rick? Put the damn phone away, man! I don't care if it's checkerboarded, like everything else you own (he even has a checkerboard tooth)

Robin with his dog. *sigh* cute dog. And cute man driving the car.

Whatever Rick's nickname was previously, it is officially SweaterMan.

Look who's a closet Rays fan? Robin's from Wisconsin, but actually he prefers Florida teams. Wonder why? He's lived in the south Florida area for 20 years. His wife is from Pinellas Park, his kids were born and grew up here. He loves it here. Consequently, he loves Florida teams. And Tom likes the Giants, as opposed to the Cubs (his home team). Would be a very interesting game if the Rays and the Giants made it to the World Series. Would love to see the two of them bicker like children over it. XD

1986's The Doctor.

Yes, they performed in "Daddy Day Care". It was really funny, because Jeff Garlin got up on stage and started singing "Surrender". I'll just leave it at that.

Greatest album cover ever.

    Metal never goes away. It drifts in and out, but the true fans are always there for it.(Eddie Trunk)
