    I have been watching the news with great interest this morning. Forest fires are raging very near the area where Saturday's show at the Blockbuster Pavilion is scheduled.

    If anyone hears anything definitive either way (show goes on/show is off), please post it here.

    Firefighting Turns Deadly in Calif.
    Tue Jun 18, 2:01 AM ET

    SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) - A wildfire raging east of Los Angeles overran two fire engine crews Monday, burning three people and shutting down Interstate 15, the main route between Southern California and Las Vegas.

    The accident came within hours of a firefighting plane crash in Northern California that killed three people. Video of the crash showed the plane's wings erupting in flames, then falling off as the aircraft hurtled to the ground.

    In all, 20 large fires were burning in 11 states across the country. Two fires in Colorado and the blaze in Northern California have forced more than 6,000 people out of their homes since early June and all were wreaking havoc Monday.

    The firefighters near San Bernardino suffered first- and second-degree burns to their hands, elbows, and noses, said Bill Peters, spokesman for the California Department of Forestry's San Bernardino unit. He said all six were listed in good condition at Arrowhead Regional Hospital.

    The firefighters were trapped when flames fed by tinder-dry brush engulfed the two engines they were using as the vehicles were parked on a highway. One of the firefighters managed to deploy an emergency shelter as the heat from the flames peeled the paint off of their trucks.

    Peters said the injuries, and the deaths of the three firefighters in Northern California, signal the beginning of an especially dangerous fire season for the West.

    "These things happening in the middle of June do not bode well for the remainder of the year," he said.

    Late Monday night, the southbound side of Interstate 15 was reopened, but the northbound lanes remained closed indefinitely as ash rained down around the area.

    "A lot of people are terrified," said Perry Van, 42, of Pinon Hills, about 10 miles west of the fire.

That's the way it's always been and that's the way it will always be. Because without the music, what is there? Nothing. There's nothing without the music. You can't even cop an attitude without the music (laughs).
