To be fair, Hawkeye wasn't always the one to hold it prior to the past 2 tours

He has more than just one roadie, but Hawkeye has been the stage manager since 1992 (24 years) so I think your list is incorrect in saying that he was just a roadie 2010-2016

What about the bigger guy - was his name Mongo or something?? - who was Al's body man during One More Minute, wearing a CPFOA jacket?

This says Hawkeye has been Als stage manager for 24 years, but in Ask Al from May 99 Al refers to Mongo as his stage manager. Which is correct?

Theory: Maybe Hawkeye was an assistant stage manager or something to that effect and then Mongo retired. Then upon writing that goodbye FB post, they simplified it by just saying he was the stage manager for 24 years.
