Welcome To Canada Steve Vai
Got my tickets and been playing my 7vwh all week and cranking the Vai tunes! It will be the Highlight of my life seeing Vai for the first time in RAMA ontario, that's right no "o" in Rama haha!
Thrilled to see Vai tomorrow. But nothing better go wrong for this show! The last time I traveled across the country to see a concert (Joe Satriani) the stage collapsed and almost killed Cheaptrick after their set! I had ran in when the gates opened and sat through 5 or 6 opening bands at the festival and never moved from the front row for 8 hours or more in the blistering heat! Not a word of a lie as Joe's guitar techs were setting up a huge storm blew in, scary as hell watching all these massive speakers and lights sway back and forth above you! When shit started falling I realized It was time to give up my spot in the front row or be crushed to death! I was so stupid, looking back at how long I stayed there as every one else was running for their lives! It was a long day, I was probably dehydrated, not thinking clearly. But being less than 5 feet from Satch would have been epic!!! I just didn't want to give up the chance that the show might still go on lol!
If risking your life for a front row seat isn't a die hard fan I don't know what is Haha!
If "Himself" ever sees this before the show I got to ask "Why is there no EVO EXPERIENCE?" your breaking my heart!! I've been listening to Firegarden since I was 7 years old. My brother bought it at a flea market second hand, I had to hide it from my parents who kept taking it away because the album art was inappropriate haha! I knew where they had put it and always took it back within a few days.
Long Live The JEM!!!!
