Thanks for all of the great letters regarding the MTV Road Home special on Sunday night. . .we enjoyed it too. . .lots of letters pissed about the lack of mr. malinins presence. . . we noticed that too. . . maybe we'll do a little Mike tribute here at the daily goo someday to make up for it. . .handsome man. . .
Lots and lots of letters mentioned how cool it was seeing robby's grandmother on the program. . . Grandma Goo. . .making her v.i.p. entrance into the big rock show. . .click on picture 1 for a shot of our good friend Lance Diamond serenading grandma goo at a festival in Buffalo earlier this year. . . .glad she got some screen time. . . .
Here's a letter from Brenda Mullins of Leesburg, VA . . . she writes. . . .
I'm watching The Road Home and loving it. I just went home for my 15 year reunion so I can relate to some of the nostalgia you must have been feeling last December. How exciting to be able to play in your hometown in front of your friends and family! Thanks for the tour of Buffalo! Robby - your parents and grandma are adorable :) I couldn't help but notice that Artie was on the show and of course I've got to ask ... Whose idea was it to record Artie (that's him, isn't it?) on the song 'Artie' and what exactly is he saying? Thanks for sharing, Brenda
Well Brenda Artie Kwitchoff is probably the sole reason this group was able to maintain any sort of order in the early parts of our career. . .he was our manager for the first few years of the band. . .and one of our best friends . . .at times we confused him. . .a lot. . . we had written a song about him on our jed record. . . we thought it would be funny to call him at work and tell him we had a huge fight and broke up the band. . . then mix it into the end of the song. . . . he handled it with his normal calm yet passionate demeanor. . slightly stutterish . . .God bless kwitchoff. . . .
Anything else?. . . uhm. . .here's one from shannon armour of Waterford, CT . . . she writes. . .
