Sorry if there already is a thread about this but i couldn't find it anywhere. Does anybody know what the "DD 661" on the backdrop means?

Yah that link popped up when i googled it but what would be the bands connection to the ship. maybe somebody doing an interview with the band should replace the "how did it feel to play with Bruce" question and ask about this instead? geek

I asked Benny about this once in 2010 and he said the stage backdrop with the skull and the DD 661 had just appeared one day on tour and that was that. He claimed he had no idea who had come up with it or why.

Isn't that the same ship pictured on the yellow asbury park sign where the convention center is?
