December 27, 2001 Mitch Myers remembers a night in 1981 at a Jeff Beck concert. He had the idea to throw the a comb toward Jeff Beck. The comb lands on the stage and for the rest of the show Myers' friends watch with anticipation to see what the great guitarist would do. There are two pieces of music here: 'Cause We Ended as Lovers' from the album Blow by Blow and 'Freeway Jam' from the album Jeff Beck With The Jan Hammer Group Live. Both songs are also available on the collection called Beckology on Epic Records.
