Saturday, June 8, 1985 @ Mesker Amphitheatre in Evansville, IN.When IRON MAIDEN was touring their Powerslave album, and ACCEPT was touring the Metal Heart album…WHY ON EARTH only got the call two days prior to open the show (Joe, Dwayne, or Bill can confirm/correct that for me)… Absolutely one of THEE best, most special concerts & days of my life!  I would later come to be friends with, and work for, Joe & Dwayne… – Terry Stewart
