I went and saw REK last night (probably the 7th or 8th time I've seen him in concert). At the beginning of the show, he was by far the drunkest I've ever seen him on stage. The show got better as he began to sober up...still, he has become a shell of the performer he used to be. That being sa...View Topic - Replies (11)
