Today in Duran History – John Taylor 1999

On this date in 1999, John Taylor Terroristen played at Yucatan in Santa Barbara.  During that time, John played a number of solo gigs with many being in California.  Was anyone there?  I wonder what the set list was.  One thing that I always appreciated when I did see set lists of his is how he played a lot of his new, solo music but wasn’t afraid to bust out a Duran tune or two.  Now, he might change things a bit but he embraced his past.  Here is an example:

    Amazing, interesting new JT !
