Sorry, guys, but there was no way I was heading to Pizza Hut Park yesterday to see Edgefest 17. A festival headlined by 3 Doors Down and Puddle of Mudd doesn't really tickle my fancy. And it wouldn't have in 2002, either.
Apparently, though, DC9 photographer Roger Caldwell didn't get that memo. He went to Frisco to take in the event, and actually put together a fine photographic collection of what the event was like. Seriously, check it out.
....then will someone please explain the draw of these bands to me? I'm all for trying to see the light on this one and having an open dialog here, but I just don't get it. Like, at all. --Pete Freedman
