Shiner. Uttering the name can bring a sparkle to the eyes of even the most jaded old music fan. Often times, it's usually followed by a conversation about how they were the best band too few seemed to notice in their prime. Their final two reunions shows were held in Chicago, where singer Allen Epley now resides. In a flurry of reunions as of late, this one stuck hard, and made sense. You can now buy a re-issued version of "The Egg". Maybe you'll get creamsicle colored vinyl. The folks I know to be hard to impress ended up raving about it. It really was something to behold. I was lucky enough to be back-stage as they went on and finished night two. I hugged a very sweaty Gerkin afterwards, caring not for myself getting drenched in the process, and told him it meant a lot to finally see them play those songs. It really did. I grew up listening to those songs, one thing I'll always thank my older brother for. Those that attended any of these few reunion shows, finish this joke for us : I haven't seen that many old dudes freaking out since...
