This evening's program stands to be the finest Prince tribute that doesn’t involve the foyer of a Sheraton and the latest Sports Illustrated.

Requests and additional cover contributions welcomed.

The losses in 2016 are unrelenting. John Stabb from the tremendous Government Issue has left us.

I know of Gov't Issue covers by Hurl, Hot Snakes and Naked Raygun. What else is out there? Didn’t Kerosene 454 do one?
