|...things were a good deal quieter backstage today, here in mellow Phoenix. However this did not prevent Rock God Alice Cooper (who apparently runs a theme restaurant across the street from the America West Arena) from finding his way back and saying hello and granting his sinister blessing on the proceedings. Also Jack and KG turned the ol' dressing room prank nozzle up a notch today. This kinda stuff is sure to make our next video clip highlight reel for you. Meanwhile: Rock? Delivered. This is Jimmy Eat World's hometown and they had a lot of 'locals' to sing to. The "D" dabbled with some 'System of a D' stylings. Weezer let fly another salvo of the good stuff. The Phonecians (I always wanted to use that term in real life) were stoked from what I could see. (And they thought weezer wouldnt come back after the Hooptie Tour 'Rawhide' disaster. O, ye of little faith!)
