i wonder if you said to Gene "hey dude you got spinal meningitis, not pneumonia..." .....i wonder if he'd chuckle a laugh in his hospital bed... or if he'd cough, whimper and rollover in pain at the irony.

hopefully he's in good spirits. I hope they can rechedule the tour, and hopefully add more dates while they're at it.

Get well Gene. We all wish you the best of luck in a speedy recovery. Anyone know what songs they were playing on this tour? New stuff? Anyone? -Stay Brown Y'all.

carzyleggedelbow: another jamband .com site (hint) posted the following about the Gener shows...

The initial shows melded classic Ween material with select covers of Alan

Parsons, the Beach Boys and David Bowie, among others.
