Rob Zombie put the following letter in the caption of the post he sent: “Flashback to that night when the one and only Rick Nielsen from CHEAP TRICK joined us. First pic is soundcheck… second is hanging backstage in dressing room… third is the show. Pretty cool. I’ve been listening to them since I was a dopey little with a portable 8 track strapped to the handlebars of my bicycle. What’s your favorite Cheap Trick tune? #robzombie #rickneilsen #cheaptrick #johnfive #piggyd #gingerfish #robfennphotography #flashbackfriday.”
