I see Joe appears to have left Ireland off his tour itinerary yet again.....

Doesn't matter to me though cos' I'll be moving to Edinburgh next month, so I guess I'll catch him and Paul at the Glasgow show :guitar :guitar 8)

My dilemma is whether to go and see him at all. His last album was, for me, crushingly disappointing. Gilberts as the support sways me a little more, but if he just steps on that whammy pedal all the time or does 3 minutes of harmonic squeals at the end of each song and plays that nausea-indicing Crowd Chant (or whatever its called).....well there wouldn't be enough vomit in the whole world.

That clarified things-I'm not going.

Not bothered about the whammy pedal...I'm a Mark Tremonti fan, so you see where I'm coming from!!!

But yes, agree with BBB, stop the 2 minute end to ALL songs. It's dull and boring.

But I'll probably still go!

Damn, I bought tickets. At least I'll have the company of my guitar tutor.

I'm going to listen to 'Super Colossal' over and over for the next few days to see if I can get into it. I think I need to 'embrace' my inner bluesman, before I can get back into Satch. Yes, embrace rather than viciously and forcefully ram those b5ths and b3rds into his...........well you get the idea!
