So, where was I? 1997. This was their 20th anniversary of the release of their debut album. So, what else to do, but release an album? That's what they did. They self-titled this one, too, like their first album. It has sort of become known as Cheap Trick '97. There's a beautiful song on there called "Shelter" and some other great stuff - "Eight Miles Low" and "Say Goodbye".
Random fact for the day - Rick Nielsen has checkerboard capped teeth. What can I say? The man loves his checkerboards.
"Oh Candy" (1977)
"Can't Stop it But I'm Gonna Try" (1980)
"Need Your Love" (1979) - Too cool not to be on Dream Police.
"Closer, the Ballad of Burt and Linda [Live]" (2010) - So good live.
A "hot" day.
Tom Petersson messing around filming the Austin City Limits concert.
"Tom creates auras" Yes he does.
"Rick gave up being a cartoon character" Yes he did.
"Robin Zander has a nice smile" That he does
"Bunezuela Carlos" ... I love it!
Wandering around Miami in 2010. Wander around the Florida area quite a ways north and to the west a little, please.
Rick Nielsen and the great Meatloaf.
The guys and friends messing around with poor Rick...

Another shot of Tom's amazing smile.
Happy Cinco De Mayo! Whatever! XD
Interesting. Is this the time when, according to CREEM magazine, they all shared the same bed in a hotel room? Important question! XD
