It was certainly a great experience, getting to see him performing just meters away, learning his self training secrets, talking to him personally, getting your guitar signed, even jamming with him (for some lucky few then)!!! Before the event I wasn't sure whether I should get my guitar signed, since I didn't know how it would look. In the end I decided to get the headstock signed, and I'm still impressed with the beauty of it! This experience gave me all the motivation I need for many more years. It was worth every penny, and I wouldn't think twice should there be another one in the future!

In order to get enough attention for this AGS in Tiel a brotherinlaw of mine made this poster for me. I just sat right beside him and I told him how I wanted everything and he did all the technical stuff. Thanks Maarten ;)

The venue (Twentietoe) where the AGS took place. Patrick Koopman (guitar tech for the Aching Hunger shows in 2004/2005) and a pale of his, Will Schut were the guitar techs for the AGS in Holland (both shows). Together with Jeroen they set Steve's gear up. When Greg (Steve's tech) arrieved, he could make the last check before Steve could do his sound check.

There were 5 lucky ones who got to Jam with Steve at this AGS. All of them aren't members here but I got to talk with a couple of them after the MC. One of them even emailed my last week because he just wanted to let me know again that he really enjoyed that day and thought it was the highlight of 2009 for him. Not just the Jam but the whole MC. He thought it was the coolest experience he had ever had.
