  1. hey Glenn Red, got to see ya last night at Pasadena… were excellent, had a blast, what a great atmosphere!

  2. I saw you at Levitt in Pasadena yesterday. During the warmup you played a song I really liked, but I can’t track it down. It sounded like a Bob Marley remix, but I’d never heard it before, so maybe it was Ziggy, or just another Reggae singer. Something about truth and life in the lyrics. Any idea?
