there's that stateline axis of armpit-burgs Rockford, IL and Beloit, WI
Went to the Shoney's breakfast buffet in Rockford on tour once. There were Amish people eating there who parked their horse and buggy in the parking lot. It took up 5 parking spaces. At the same visit, the waitress saw that I had eaten like 8 plates of food and when we asked for the check, she pointed at me disgustedly and asked, "Are you sure this one's had enough french toast sticks?" She wasn't even being funny about it. That attitude would not fly at a buffet in the south! Except for Cheap Trick, that whole town can be incinerated for all I care.
We played a great show in Beloit, though.
