Cherub Rock
Ava Adore
Being Beige
BC: Thank you very kindly, thank you. How are y’all doin’, you okay? You know, I’m going through the change, Jeff.
Jeff: Yeah, menopause. Male menopause, that’s what they call it, male menopause. Laz is going through it too.
BC: Laz-y at the lights.
Jeff: Plus they got the good time hair and everything.
BC: We’re Americans, we can’t help it. Um, like to play a song now which is also from the Monuments album, it’s called Drum and Fife. And this song is for our soldiers fighting good wars, bad wars, doesn’t matter ‘cause they’re soldiers. We have a lot of guys coming back, need a lot of love, I’m sure you have that here too.
Guy in crowd: We have lots of love, Billy!
BC: Heh heh. I don’t know if I agree with your love but.... It’s a little bit rough for me. I’ve experienced the rough form of Aussie love. Heh heh. You like it rough here.

BC: Thank you very much, thank you.

BC: Thank you so kindly, thank you. It’s generally agreed, it’s generally agreed that when I don’t talk, things go better. So let me keep it simple and say thank you so much for everything.
