JANUARY 28 2003

Des Moines--the coldest I've ever been.  It was miserable.  I just didn't want to be there.  Got in at 11am, got out at 3:30pm.  Jim Root dropped me at the airport.

Shot them in the street in front of City Hall, then at a fake brewery bar (you know--those dreadful "this is meant to be the 1920s").  Drove out to Corey's grandmother's (Thelma) home, shot them in front of the house and the two of them on her doorstep.  This was the first time I'd been back in Des Moines since the Iowa Jam (I think in 1984 or '85).  Aerosmith headlined with Dokken and new band Metallica in support.
