I've told this (sorta) Roky E story a lot, here goes- John Wesley Harding played Maxwell's to support his Name Above Title cd. He also had "if you have ghosts" on a Roky tribute. In middle of show, he does the song. The subdued quiet throughout the set young woman in front of me unleashes a big howl. I can never forget that.
