"I remember the years that I was on the road with Johnny Cash and his show. We always looked forward to playing the cities where we could eat at a Victoria Station restaurant after the concert. The friendly atmosphere and great food really helped to make our days away from home more enjoyable. And I have fond memories of taking my family to Victoria Station when my sons, Mike and Steve, were young."
