Cheap Trick: Roxy Theatre, Atlanta

Bill DeMain, MOJO, March 2001

THE GUY next to me is in his late thirties. He has a mullet and he's about one beer away from being legless. When he sees me writing in my notepad just before the house lights go down, he leans over and says, "Man, if I had a party where I could hire any band in the world, I'd hire Cheap Trick because they're the ultimate party band."
