These photos were taken after coming off stage in the Whiskey A Go Go in Los Angeles. July 1980.

The last week of a four week effort to conquer the United States and claim it for Derry.

A certain look of apprehension can be detected on some of our faces, as we were due to go on stage again. "Two shows a night" looks great on a poster, but to actually do two shows on one stage on one night was a new experience for us. I was especially concerned as I was wearing the same shirt on stage as I had put on that morning getting dressed. I would wear it for the second show as well. Change my shirt in front of the rest of the band? Are you mad? One of the support bands was called the Psychotic Pineapple - they had a large walking pineapple which arrived on stage during their performance, as far as I remember. All we had was Feargal's naked chest. Jimmy Carter was the President and still we weren't successful in subjugating the USA. I'll never understand show business.
