Palatine, IL


We left St. Charles, MO at 8am. I tried to sleep on the ride to the Chicago area but nothing seemed to work. I watched two movies & listened to two albums on my iPod. I guess I got too much sleep last night for exhaustion to kick in. By the time we got to Palantine, I didn't have time to take a nap. If I did I would have been groggy.
Durty Nellie's was the scene of the crime tonight. It is a 500 capacity bar in Palatine, IL. Stuart Swanlund sat in with us for the whole night. It was kinda fun. However, my voice is shot. This is the first time that it has happened. Last Sunday, following our stint in Tucson, I started getting this chronic cough. By now, I've coughed so much that my throat is VERY irritated. Singing some of these high harmonies are nearly impossible in this condition. I'm gonna go to sleep & see if I don't feel better tomorrow.
