So, I'm delaying talking about 2009's The Latest, because it's too epic. So, instead, I have for you the opening dialog for the "Dream Police" video.
Robin Zander (CT 777)- "Look, I didn't do it. 5 years ago, I had no idea I'd be here. Who are you anyway? What do you take me for? I must be dreaming." *rubs his eyes very sleepliy*
Bun E. Carlos (CT VI)- *searches in his pockets for a piece of paper*"Hold on a second" *finds it* "Listen, I'll never eat a double cheeseburger before bed again."
Tom Petersson (CT 714)- *Very nervous* *Voice is a bit shaky* "I'm telling ya, I didn't do it. But if I did do it, it was an accident."
Rick Nielsen (CT 360)- *very fast* "In promulgating your esoteric cogitations and articulating your superficial sentimentalities, amicable, philosophical and psychological observations...beware of platitude misponderosities...Are we really the Dream Police?"
The "no strings" version of that song is really good, too.
"Every Night and Every Day" (2006)
"Hello There" (1977)
"The Doctor" (1986) - In the minority here, but I really love this song.
"Wrong Side of Love" (1988)
"Everybody Knows" (2009) - Cannot get enough of this amazing song.
See? Even the Dos Equis guy likes Cheap Trick!
"Wake me up for beer or golf." And in response to his pin, who doesn't love Bonzo?
The guys with Phyllis Diller (RIP)
I hear this was from an episode of "Pickers".
And look who's been caught picking from the tree. Picking. Get it? Cuz they're guitar picks... *silence* *man coughs* Wrong audience.
Happy *late* 4th of July from Cheap Trick. I'm early for next year.
This is a pretty cool photo.
Pledge CT! (for what, I don't know)
Rick Nielsen pointing to "the man"!
Gosh, people get such good pictures of these guys.
He's like "I'm not answering this damn phone".
Cheap Trick and a bunch of guys that I do not know. I love Tom's shoes.
Performing in 1994.
And a great shot of Tom's peacock 12 string bass guitar. This might be my favorite of his.
