Quite honestly, I think the band wants to play. The boys want to play together, and hopefully we can get on the ups here. We’re thinking ahead. I know, obviously, because of the book, and there’s a lot of retro going on and stuff. But as far as I’m concerned, get over it. Get on ahead. We want to make some records, and we want to do some good shows, and we believe that we have it in us to do that.
