we’re limping our way to our last show of our 2007/2008 world tour literally. taylor has a broken toe, I have a broken heel, and we all have broken hearts that this all time fun summer run is about to end. thanks to everyone who helped us get through the past year including our wicked road crew, families, band friends, and especially, you fans who made it possible for us to go out and do what we love. we love you all. we’ll be working on more studio recording the rest of the year and be back out next year. xxxxxxxxoooooooo.

taylor here. sitting in my bedroom in los angeles. we are home today, the bus dropped us off in LA this morning after our vegas show last night. tonight we get right back on the bus and head up to norcal for the fair show. almost starting to get sad that tour is over. we all need the break, and need to record a new album, but the crowds have been so great this summer i know ill miss it when we’re done. today is all about doing laundry, seeing a couple friends, and packing a very small backpack for the next little 6 day trip before we’re home again. once again, the audiences on this tour have been wicked. thanks to everyone who has been to show and i hope u are getting every penny’s worth. ive been having a lot of fun with the setlists we’ve been creating. for those of u who dont know, we are doing a mixture of calling the world songs, first album songs, 2 unreleased songs from the “lost records”, and several covers. we have been having fun with alternate lead singers (ned and i on “the weight” and “helter skelter” and the bridge section of “believe in me”), and even some instrument switching! (on our neil young cover robert plays drums, louie plays guitar and ned sings lead up front). its almost exactly one year since the record came out, and the touring has been really rigorous and exhausting at times….but when its over i know im gonna miss playing to the fans, and hanging with the band and our crew guys. school’s out for summer. alice cooper is the shit. peace.
