Well, Pete's promising the whole show - I hope technology is on his side.

Hi Rod!

Hey hey...have you changed your mind about John Petrucci the genius yet?

I gave him a fighting chance a few years ago and bought several of their albums because people kept insisting on how good they were. I just can't get into it.  They can't write a decent melody to save their lives.  However that being said, I can understand why people like them. They just don't appeal to me. Maybe if John Myungs bass wasn't so buried in the mix it would be a little more appealing to me, but I doubt it.

Have you heard The Spirit Carries On, or Trial Of Tears?

I swear I thought I saw Eddie Trunk there in the beginning, but I'm not sure he knows were Calgary is.

Try the solo for The Spirit Carries On for starters....They can, they just don't do it enough. If you're looking for Myung unleashed try When Dream and Day Unite, their first album.....

Security guys doing what security guys do best:  chatting with each other instead of, you know, scanning for trouble or whatever.

Every freaking time I hear this music during pre-show I think of Chris Squire. So sad.

Dude is our savior.
If he's here the whole night, I'll be having one rough day at work tomorrow after Stu Hamm last night.

Stu Hamm was $25 (no fees) and I chilled on a couch 30 feet away from the Hamm, Skolnick and Joel Taylor. It was heavenly.

I suppose that's one reason why I don't have my R40 program yet.

I was hoping I can cheat and miss this, but Pete is challenging me to stick it out (so to speak.)
