'Nobody knows what's going to happen. Berry is the key. Everyone is waiting for the word from him. Whatever it's going to be, we're really excited,' added Fakir.
Screw Berry being the key! I say they do the do and send him an invite! lol
There is going to be a big concert over here though in June 09 as the remaining Legends are coming to Wembley Arena to celebrate the big 5-0. It's only right that Detroit does something - that goes without saying
