By the third week on the road we were playing at the Palladium in NYC during Halloween and being recorded by MTV. We had rehearsed for three months before this so the band was very tight. It was such a change for me going from being a local LA drummer to getting to play with Frank. Ill never forget what Frank did for me. Chad Wackerman, 26 May 2007
