OK Mende/froggie It would not start the download as "the server has an internal error" so I pasted in the URL as far as the froggie part and was informed
"Temporarily Unavailable

The Angelfire site you are trying to reach has been temporarily suspended due to excessive bandwidth consumption"

So presumably at some point today everybody who read your posting tried to save the mp3 at the same time!!

Downloading worked for me.

What's worse than being a talented, famous songwriter and flubbing the words to your own song and the entire audience knows it? Being an untalented hack who can't get even get booked in a police station and flubbing the words to your own song and nobody notices.

Worked just fine for me too. That's pretty funny. Funny thing is, all the times I've seen him perform live, I've never caught onto any mistakes. I see lots of fooling around between Terry and Rick and sometimes they lure Mike into it. They can be pretty comical once you catch onto their subtleties.

Watch the Reno DVD during Baby Step Back. Watch Terry and Rick. When Gord sings, "I was born to fight..." Terry looks at Rick, grins and rolls his eyes a little, and mouths "OOOOOHHHH!" They continue on like this through the whole verse.

No. One thing I don't attempt to do is play lead unless I can fingerpick it.
