  • I went to madison from 1990-94 and it was greeeeeeeat and if I could do it all over again I would. The bad then was super but right now I don't know. The drum majors (Doris Hudson, Marko Jones, Darrius Lilly) OMG at that time was off the chain. There will never ever be Fresh Ones like that ever again!!!!!!
    Often Imitated but never duplicated
