i'm like, lights stamina action, i'm a rock star, check the crowd reaction:
You remember Filter, yeah? "Hey Man Nice Shot"? It turns out Filter's bassist is now an Army Reserve sergeant preparing to deploy (presumably) to Iraq. That's according to a Pentagon write-up of this D-list show.
“We’re coming over here to play rock music, and Frank’s in the military, said Richard Patrick, lead vocalist for Filter. “Let’s bridge the two worlds and let everybody know it’s really one world.”

“Frank” is Sgt. Frank Cavanagh, Filter’s former bass player, who’s now an Army reservist getting ready to deploy.
For reasons of patriotism, Filter no longer officially blows.
