Homeskoolin’ Road Update “Double Down”

00:00 - Tour bus stories

Hello my dear Homeskoolers, just a quick update from day 11 of a 14 day run with Ann Wilson and the Amazing Dawgs. Admittedly, everyone is a little punch drunk and emotionally wrung out after our dear bass player Tony, who we all love to pieces, had a “temporary departure” from sanity on the casino floor in Atlantic City.

Quote of the tour so far, from the resident wise old owl Ebo….”Atlantic City was built on Tony Lucido’s”

Thank God everything ended peacefully.

Thanks for watching the show guys….
Your pal Uncle Larry
