Sue me. They make something I like.
The only other people in the place, both staff and customers, were women who looked to be in their early 20s. I noted this because of the recorded song we all were hearing — “The Ghost in You” by the Psychedelic Furs.
I bought that album back when it came out in 1984. Particularly liked that song. And I felt like saying something about that, but decided against it.

I didn't see that concert. But I once saw him do a midday show at an outdoor venue on a summer afternoon so hot one member of the audience had to be hauled away on a stretcher.
But the weather didn't faze Merle. A true pro.
