Hello everyone,

We had a very special day. We arrived the show arena very early to take photos with Virgil, Tony and Billy then finally we saw them
and asked for taking photos. They were very kind and we had very cool photos then we kept hanging out there.

Few minutes later we saw Virgil coming out alone and we asked him if we can join him. He kindly accepted. We hang out, it was cool. While walking around, we asked Virgil to eat something. He said that he wanted fish then we went to a restaurant for fish. Ordered the best tasteful fish for Virgil. We all ate and talked a lot while eating. It was so exciting that we hardly talked in the first few minutes! But Virgil is a cool man and very gentle.

We asked him can we watch the soundcheck. He kindly accepted us ! So we watched the soundcheck and they were all great! The show was amazing either! Macalpine is technically superior. Billy is a show-man! He is absolutely incredible. Virgil is incredible too. His drum solo was amazing!

We watched a great show.
Special thanks to Virgil Donati.

Here are some pictures:

Oh! Ok, well then it's not accurate to use the word 'overrated'. Overrated means someone who's not that good. :lol:

You could use a term like technically superior. That means he has extremely good technique.

Sorry to be so nitpicky :roll:
