Paul Gilbert - I opened for him and...

Well, I'm not going to detail everything here, and having thought about what to write after what was supposed to be the biggest honour in my playing life, I've boiled this down to this:

Paul Gilbert behaved, and treated my band and everyone else, like shit and acted like a total diva/primadonna, making ridiculous demands and even said things to the effect of "do you know who I am?" and referred to himself in the third person to soundmen and event organisers.

He can go .... himself.

thats the only excuse. maybe the guy was tired, worn out, had a bad day. are you happy everyday you go to work? im not! i treat people kinda bad at work when i am having or had a bad day. just because the guy id famous doesnt mean he will be a ray of sunshine all the time cuz fans are around or coworkers.

not really an excuse to make crazy demands and speak about yourself in third person, you know, the whole diva thing.
If he is in a pissy mood that is entirely different but it sounds like it was more than that

well dude think of it this way (no im not condoning the way he acted). he is paul gilbert. he has been a globally known guitarist and has been for decades. he is spoilt. he has been getting his way for along time. so he prolly is used to getting the red carpet treatment. add that to a hectic schedule and your prolly gonna get a moody asshat lol.

Surprisingly, it went pretty well. I think because of all the concessions we had to make and the negativity we all had prior to going onstage, we just resolved to make the best of a bad situation. We managed turn the negativity into fuel for a good performance.
We also had a very good turn out and felt some love from the audience.

Yeah that sounds similar to everyone else I've heard from who has met him before too!

Although it doesn't excuse the way he acted that day, it was probably just an off day. Sorry to hear your experience with him was less-than-stellar but all other accounts I've heard about meeting Paul or hanging out with him have been really positive. He IS a huge name in the guitar industry so I'm sure he might have a little ego, but with what he has accomplished and his technique () I would have cut him a little slack. Again, not excusing him but it was probably just a really bad day.

one thing that i've heard about paul is that he's pretty upset that he's such a badass guitar player and yet has almost no following, unlike vai or satch... i've emailed the guy before, and he was cool as all hell, was awesome to get a personal response from him.
