Remember the early ’90s, maaan? If it’s a little foggy, just chill, dude, because you can travel back in time this summer. That’s when two of the last decade’s real rock & roll masters — Counting Crows and Live — will join forces for a cross-country tour.

A recent press release reports that Live’s Ed Kowalcyzk and Crows’ Adam Duritz met in Los Angeles and became ”instant friends.” Which leads us to wonder: Was it Adam and Ed who tossed these cocktail napkins in an L.A. boite? After all, it sure looks like somebody’s been cooking up names for a real rock extravaganza.
