Just saw this bulletin from Brother Bruce Bennett on Facebook and figured it might perk some of you folks up...

"It's official. We (A-Bones) are gonna back up Roy Loney and Cyril Jordan from the Flamin' Groovies together for the first time in 30 something years at the 9th Ponderosa Stomp in New Orleans in April. I knew I was staying alive for something. Roy and Cyril have already made a set list and since I'm honor bound to keep it a secret (good luck prying anything out of Mim, Billy, Ira, Marc or Lars) all I can say is, well, wow! Hopefully we'll back up Ray Sharpe, too. The last time with Ray it kinda got to sounding like the Bizarro World Yardbirds..."
