FAREWELL, ALABAMA...FOR NOW

No one thought it would really end, but Alabama's long-running "Farewell Tour" had its curtain call last Saturday Night in Bismarck, North Dakota. Alabama closed out their touring career with a personal goodbye reminiscent of how they used to close their June Jam concerts - bringing the band and crew on stage for the final song. GACTV.com reports that with many family members and the tour's whole entourage there, it was a long, emotional final goodbye for Randy, Teddy, Jeff and Mark. But the show didn't end on a down note. Drummer Mark Herndon lightening the mood by declaring, "I need a job."
