I assume that it is the people who don't give into the music, but know every line and know if he misstates a word or mixes up a verse.

I really don't pay attention to the words, so I never know. I have all I can do to listen.

Talking about his birthday yesterday...hearing on the radio today that he was 29...hee.

And he thinks he looks 21. Good for you Clay!

Talking about being alone with the orchestra now.

Clay talking about performing with a full orchestra for the first time - he doesn't know the fancy music terms. Much screaming, so I can't hear the next part.

Hand over the mouth joke - "That's rude".

Travel story - lots of snow in Chicago. Leading into MCWL - talking about Allison.

Black and green socks.

ETA: I see the joke was "5 people wanted pictures of me with my hand over their mouth. That's rude."

Some conversation with a couple in the audience from Ohio? He also sounded like he was dinging somebody (humorously) with a cellphone - compared to illegal downloading. I think that ship has sailed a long time ago dude. :P
