B-52s minus the beloved Ricky - surf and turf guitarist who passed in the 80's due to AIDS -

They're a little older but I'd hardly call them gray. I'd call them orange.
The beauty of the B52's is of course that rambling guitar that sounds like a day at the beach.
Yes, they covered Rock Lobster. Yes: planet Claire. Yes: Private Idaho. We danced we drank
Humanity had a great time on a warm August evening in the park, by Curly's diner. Danced.
What is the future of love? What will love look in the year 3000? Something like the B-52's hopefully.
God bless Athens, GA! Home of warm coffee and latenight jam sessions in the church. Rocked.
Fred has dies his hair orange and matches singer Kate Pierson's beehive-turned wild locks.
The guitar could have been about twice as loud: That's my only caveat. The crowd in itself was
worth the admission price ($10) as they grooved to the beats in the heat. Summer dresses abounded
and I must say: Plenty of camera phones making movies. There's probably plenty of coverage of it.
Give me back my man!
