Well here's some news I can finally lay on ya. We are going to part of a Disney Rollercoaster. You heard me right. The Walt Disney Company came to us a few months ago and said they were building this mega ride that they were going to call the "Rockin' Roller Coaster, and would we be interested? We thought they were going to give us a free ride on opening day. Then they told us that they wanted to design the ride around our music and they wanted us personally involved with some of the other parts of it. Are you kidding?! In how many languages can you understand the word "yes" because we about to say it many, many times!!

So, we've been doing all this cool multimedia stuff that will be used on the actual ride. Wow, I just got a weird thought. There will be people on that ride losing their lunch and most of their bodily functions to our music. Not the kind of reaction we usually go for. Hey wait a minute! I wonder if we could do that when we play live? That's what happens when I think. These things pop up and I can't stop them.

By the way, when you get on this thing it goes from zero to sixty in 2.8 seconds. Not even a Porsche Turbo or a GTO with the tri-power is that fast. Then you're upside down a few times, enjoy a couple of 4G loops, hear some custom tailored Aero Music from a separate sound system for each seat and then you try to remember how to breathe. Don't worry, when you get to the end we'll be right there virtually waiting for you.
