got to see 'em twice (green bay, milwaukee) it was great to see them again. no disrespect( i like the sam stuff), but i'm a dave fan- after him, it's was about the trio for me. once again, they showed me why there has never been any band to come close to the chemistry, the magic, the feel, or the wizardry they have together- awesome shows...and yes sam was great, he always is live. loved it
Saw two shows, spent WAY more money than I should have, drove agonizingly far... Got pushed, shoved, and blasted left and right in the 1st & 2nd rows, lost my voice for several days following each event, and wouldn't trade a second of it for anything you could ever offer me.
Got to watch some soundcheckin', won an autographed poster in the drawing @ the party, and got to talk with all four members of the band at one point or another. Plus saw the greatest rock and roll band in the world for a total of 4 1/2 hours from a distance of 15 feet or so. More specifically... I watch the MAN work the machine that he has mastered.
This past summer was a time for me that I never EVER thought would come CLOSE to happening. Both times, I've been so overrun by adrenaline, the memory is even rather surreal to me. It's a picture I've painted in my head and in my dreams for so many years, that now, when I look back on it, it seems like a dream. If I hadn't snapped 25 shots with a disposable for proof, I'm not sure I would believe myself!
