    Default They write me letters......the variations

    In the survivor thread there was a brief mention of one of Joe's alternate lines in Life's Been Good..so I took a few minutes listen through several different versions...and below are a few of the variations that I found.

    Original
    "they write me letters, tell me I'm great"

    Variations
    "they write Tim letters, tell Glenn Don's great"
    "they write Glenn letters, tell him he's great"
    "they write Glenn letters, tell Don that Timothy's great"
    "they write me letters, tell me I'm overweight"
    "they write me letters, tell me .......(just music)"
    "they write me letters, tell me Glenn's great"
    "they write me emails, tell me Glenn's great"
    "they send me emails, tell me Glenn's great"
    "they write Glenn emails, tell him he's great"
    "they write me emails, tell me Vince is great"

    There are probably more, but that's searching through probably 15-20 "unofficial" recordings as well as live albums and videos.

    A couple of other tid-bits...his Mazarati changes speeds few times...185, to 1085, to a huge jumble of numbers..

    in the limo at least one he rides in the trunk, in case he gets drunk
    once rides in the back, and watches the war from Iraq
    a few times, rides in the back, locks the doors and eats his big mac.
    one rather bizarre one says "...I ride in the back, I lock the doors and RIDE IN THE BACK"

    In Liverpool in 2014 he sang ‘they write me emails tell Glenn Dons great’. It caught poor Glenn on the hop

    When I saw them in LROOE Joe sang "I got a limo, ride in the back, go to White Castle and pick up a sack".

    The last variation on 'they write me letters 'BB listed doesn't count.
    Oh, OK, then, IN MY OPINION it doesn't count.

    I meant no offense or anything by that. I was just going through concerts and figured I would be complete with what I had.
