Having backed up a lot of Legends, Ya got to roll with the punches.
Their right we are not. Its amatter of respect! The band shoulda picked
it up and changed KEY!
  I won't mention names but once a Legend was out of tune. I tried to
get him to retune.  He said he WAS in tune.  He was, but not with the
keyboard! When we took a break I had some one distract him and I tuned
him to the keyboard.  the second show was great.  RFH
