Almost considered coming down but have a race in the morning. The last time I drove to one with a hangover (which was also an almost 3 hr drive btw), it was bad times.


Shoulda came down...good times and tunes were had for all.


You most definitely must have some pretty solid chops to be playing some Avenged Sevenfold. I never had the legs for metal drumming -- just couldn't get the double-bass consistency going. Probably why I naturally gravitated to more jazz/funk stuff :lol:

If you can play tripplets with your feet your golden. The Rev(rip) was notorious for that. Im anxious to see what A7X will sound like now.

For all you thrash fans out there. Please buy this band's albums. This is my perfect thrash. I'm crazy about these guys. Everything I ever wanted in a thrash band from the speed to the aggression and melody and cool licks and the way they go about structuring their songs with the guitar solos coming in at the right time just screaming at you Slayer-style. I have not heard a band this good at this style of metal since the late 80's, honestly. The entire album is flawless, just like the other one I posted.

that seems cool. wonder if it works well with bass and how it sounds. i refuse to play with sound i dislike, especially if it's too trebly/clicky. i like smooth round - no low boom and no harsh treble - and full of warmth. labella strings, ftw.

found this while going through wiki

Keith Morris (lead singer of Black Flag/Off) filled in for Red Hot Chili Peppers singer, Anthony Kiedis during one of the band's shows in the mid-80s. When Kiedis, who was off scoring drugs, failed to show up for the performance, the band asked Morris to fill in on vocals. Morris, who didn't know any of the lyrics, yelled and made up lyrics to the band's songs to get through the performance.

:lol:

According to the Chili Peppers' wiki page, he's listed as a touring lead vocalist in 1986.

Please post any videos of this. I'd love to hear his version of the older funkier stuff.

Jim James is good stuff. His new solo has been on my to-be-purchased list for a while... wish he was making a stop in the burgh.

Yes sir - glad you asked :lol:

One of the best I've been to. It had all the big hits for the casual DVE listener, and yet still some great great lesser-heard stuff for us hard-cores.

Was twittering earlier and found that the whole show is on YouTube at this guy's page http://www.youtube.com/user/clubdoc/videos?tag_id=&shelf_index=1&view=0&sort=dd

Sound isn't the greatest, but this dude was literally about 6 feet in front and to the right of my seats.... can hear myself yelling a few times, yeah!

My standouts - So You Wanna Be a Rock n' Roll Star (Byrds cover and one of my faves for TPHB), Baby Please Don't Go, A Woman in Love (first time hearing live for me!), Rebels (acoustic), Melinda (Benmont Tench's piano solo is great... also a first live), Yer So Bad was lesser known, but a great crowd singalong, Don't Come Around Here No More is always worth it just for the strobe/crazy solo, but my favorite of the night was probably I Should Have Known It, off their last album Mojo.... and Mike Campbell absolutely TEARS IT UP. The song has so many good breakdowns and riffs.



It's such a tight band, all the way around.

You can't really go wrong with a Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers show."I Should Have Known It" is an incredible song and it really rocks live. I'm not a big fan of the treatment they have been giving "Learning to Fly" lately. I feel like all the emotion is sucked out of that song and the album version is far superior. "You Wreck Me" encore was quality. I've always been a big fan of "A Woman in Love (It's Not Me)" and "Love is a Long Road", they were both really good. I thought TP did a great Dylan impression on "Tweeter and the Monkey Man". That was always one of my favorite Wilburys' songs.

Big thanks to US Air for forcing my bandmate to gatecheck his Gibson 335 after he insisted that they not, before breaking the headstock off of it and refusing to respond in any way through e-mail, phone, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Great work guys.
