  • Rich Mullins begins opening for Amy Grant's "Unguarded" tour".
    "before a concert, artists, being the eccentrics they are, do weird things...to get pumped up or to take their minds off things - to ease their nerves, if they have any.
    ...and Rich would search out a chalk board or dry erase board and on it, he would sketch out the world and the continents and the seas that surrounded them. He had traveled quite a bit by that time and so he wanted to recount every country he could. So he labeled them, one by one. And before he left his work of art behind for the stage he would title and sign it: 'The World As Best As I Remember It ~R. W. Mullins'" (Source: Kathy Sprinkle, via Rhonda Miskowski)
