    Nice! Especially the Yngwie harmony at the end. Yngwie used that riff on another song besides Jet to Jet, too.

    That was fun! More of that, please. :hbang:

    Then I guarantee I saw you there, if you were inside at soundcheck. Jeff is a very cool - and humble - guy. He's changed so much, too - it used to be pulling teeth to get him to talk, and now he's much more outgoing.

    He actually walked up to me and said hi after soundcheck. I was just standing there when he walked up to the merch booth, and he just stuck out his hand and said, "Hi, I'm Jeff." It took every once of my strength to not go fanboy and say, "No, you're fucking God! Could you rub some of your mojo off on my guitar?" :bowdown:

    Very gracious guy. I love how he throws horns in every picture he takes:

    That was fucking awesome. A little while back I found out that In Flames, Nevermore, Throwdown, and Evergrey were coming to the Orbit Room this weekend. Went home and started running around the kitchen completely stoked to be able to see Loomis live and yelling we had to get tickets "right fucking now". I was completely beside myself with glee until my girlfriend pointed out that my kid brother was getting married that afternoon and there is no way we could make it.:mad: :fawk: :wallbash:

    Well, considering that some dude proposed to his girlfriend onstage during the Evergrey set at Jaxx, maybe you should have convinced your kid brother to hold his wedding onstage during the Nevermore set. Can you imagine Warrel conducting the ceremony??? :lol:

    Now that would be a sight. Especially considering that we would have to convince his fiance that they were opening for Billy Ray Cyrus to pull that off.

    I'll forgive anything, even bad taste in music, for the right girl.

    Billy Ray Cyrus is not music.

    Amen to that. It would be awfully hard for me to date a non-metal loving chick. And if she was into the whole mulletted crooning about horse love she better be able to attend metal concerts with a smile on her face because there have been a ton of good ones here in the last couple of years. I wish my brother and his soon to be bride all the best but putting the kibosh on Nevermore and In Flames has made me a very unhappy camper.

    I love my sister to death, but if she got married on a day Nevermore came through, and I knew the reception was going to be chock full of country music, then she would have to understand that I'd be at the wedding and skipping out on the reception. I'm family, and she can't kick me out. If she tries, well, her loss, because there is absolutely no way that I would be able to tolerate four hours of stupid line dancing when I know that Nevermore is down the street, tearing it up.

    Even if I skip the reception I'm screwed. It's a late afternoon wedding and we'll be about an hour and a half from GR not counting the stop to change clothes. And worse yet I'm in charge of putting away the reception tables and chairs. I won't be able to drink my way through the line dancing either because if all the gear isn't put away by a certain time the hall hits them with a big overcharge. So liquor to drown my sorrows will also be a no-go. Why oh why have the guitars gods forsaken me? Who knows when Loomis will be back.

    ^ False. Canceled. :flex:

    Seriously, when it is your turn to get married, make sure to hire a very loud, very obnoxious metal band, and put your brother and his wife in charge of the reception in the same capacity as you. Let them feel your pain.

    :flame: Point: Mike

    Can't do it. I know too many divorced people to get married. I'll get that little bastard somehow.
