Anyone ever seen this guy?

Going to check him out tonight on his solo tour. I'm guessing it will be $10 well spent!

Ok, so he was impressively fast and accurate but his performance reminded me why I need a live Vai fix in a BAD way!

Seeing a one trick pony like Marc is kind of like going to a strip club. At first it really catches your attention :shock: but after 10 minutes it's like eh :| ...

Yeah, that's how I felt after I went to my first and only Yngwie concert.
All the songs sounded the same, all the solos sounded the same and he spent more time throwing the guitar around and doing the karate kicks than actually playing.
I've checked out some of the vids of Mark and I remembered that I actully saw him with Soulfly, well, he is fast and all, but IMO it's just pure shred, not my thing these days.

I watched the video linked above on my work computer.
And even with no speakers, I knew that it would suck.
Re-visited the link again at home, and my suspicions were comfirmed....
