Wonderful article/interview, Gary!  
23-year fan of the band here; with 59 shows under my belt.  Not bad for someone who lives in Alabama!  
I was also at those Mercury Ballroom shows!  :)

Great read Gary - thanks for going in depth on this great band.  I saw them several times in the early 90's here in Michigan and again on the recent tour at The Ark in Ann Arbor - they haven't lost a step.  My favorite record of theirs remains "Casino".

Excellent read. Their catalogue is filled with gems, but "Diamond Mine" 1987 , my first taste of Blue rodeo , will always be my favorite. "Girl of Mine" is still the best heart break song, from a man's  perspective , I've ever heard.
