A few years ago at a Sacramento gig my buddy and I made it backstage to see Tony and George (Larry was ironing a shirt as we were lead backstage, which he stopped doing momentarily to say "hi" to us and give a quick wave). The two of us waited in the dressing room for about 5 minutes before Tony and George arrived. Charlie's red acoustic was sitting across one of the chairs, and I was tempted to play it but I left it alone. :wink:

On a nearby table I noticed a book with perhaps 20 hand-written song titles listed, along with multiple "tick" marks next to most of the titles. I didn't touch it, but I glanced at the page it was opened to. There were no big surpises in the titles...perhaps one song I remarked to my friend "I hope they play THAT tonight" (I can't remember which song).

I got the impression that Tony came up with the lists in consultation with Bob. Perhaps before we got there he was putting the night's list together, then went off to have it reproduced for the rest of the band, and that's why the book with the titles listed was open.

I didn't want Tony to know I'd been looking at it so I didn't ask about it. In retrospect I wish I had asked about who does the setlists without referring to the book. Oh well. Perhaps I got distracted when Charlie came in to pick up his guitar, and said hello to us, too.

The band got their 5 minute warning and we were escorted out. I noticed Bob's black and white acoustic sitting on a couch in the next dressing room over, as we were leaving. Bob was probably taking a pre-show leak. :)
