Houston Connections, If Any: Like Brown, Rocks Off resolved to rededicate ourselves to following our dreams after the September 11 attacks. Only in our case, the dream was to masturbate in the bullpen of every Major League Baseball stadium.
If You Like This, Chances Are You'll Like: Extended instrumental breaks, Grizzly Adams, a cold beer on a hot Christmas morning.
Odds of Wearing a Hat: 10 percent
Because He/She's Bald? More likely because he can't cram one on over that knit monstrosity he's always wearing.
Odds of Onstage Injury: < 25 percent. Brown is the 11th of 14 kids, so he's probably pretty adept at keeping out of harm's way at this point.
Odds of Them Playing "All My Exes Live in Texas:" George Strait isn't in their usual repertoire of covers, so call it 15 percent.
