Sure, former singer Lou Gramm won't be there, but as far as I've heard, his conversion to Christianity keeps Gramm from playing the group's more sexually charged material.…

http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archives/2011/02/03/laurie-roberts-arizona-about-to-pitch-headfirst-over-the-edge-and-into-the-gorge

NY Times:


Mary Reed, who was shot three times that morning, said her insurer, through her husband’s job at the University of Arizona, had been unusually responsive and accommodating since the shooting, approving medicines and services in 24 hours, significantly faster than usual.
