That's really cool to hear about them having a good time on stage, and agree that it enhances the experience as an audience member when you know the boys are having fun.
Reminds me of all the '72 tapes where they all joke around with the audience and are engaged. Or the 77 Dicks Pick where at the end of "Dupree's" Phil walks up to the mic and says "That's a true story folks".
I too wish we could get more engagement at the just friendly basic level from the band. I appreciated seeing Sunshine walk around the GA floor at the SB Bowl show, or in my one lucky experience at TXR having Phil eat dessert with us. The whole "rock star" thing doesnt work for me at all, they are just regular people who happen to be excellent musicians. So like talk to us every once in awhile. LOL.
