Steve I have been a fan of yours since 1988 and have attended all your Melbourne shows and Saturdays show was absolutely unbelievable experience yet again.
I have met you many times now and have had my Ibanez Jem and Universe signed buy you. Thank you so much for this , it really makes it all worthwhile being such a huge fan of yours.
For a around about two years now I have been building a custom tribute guitar to you and Passion and Warfare so this time round I wanted to show you how much of a fan I am and how much I appreciate the inspiration your playing and Passion and Warfare has had on my life.
I decided to purchase an EVO experience ticket and to get Steve to sign my guitar and take a few pictures with him.
Well what an experience this turned out to be, Upon being as nervous as hell meeting Steve I presented the guitar to him and explained that It was built as a tribute to him and Passion and Warfare.
Steve was very extremely impressed with the guitar and loved the swirl and the reverse headstock.
He signed it on the body and headstock and we took a few photos together.
The night did not end there, during the show Steve called me up on stage to build a song …. This was an honor and a privilege for me. I got to give Philip Byrone a bass line and play on Michael Arron’s keyboards.
Just as the night ended we all took a final bow.
It was a night that I will never forget for the rest of my life, Getting to live the dream of being a rockstar and on stage next to me idol.
This just shows that the Universe and Cosmos work in mysterious ways ……
Liberty and Justice For All…… Archie ……
