2 years ago today...


2 years ago today Steve Vai played in Sydney Australia, on the night of July 26, 2004.

My 25th Birthday.

I was one of the many lucky people that got to meet Steve after the concert. I couldn't believe that I got to shake his hand and that he wished me a happy birthday.

It's funny cause I know I made an ass of myself. I was just overwhelmed and didn't really know what to say. But ah well. It was a good night.

As I sit here and reminisce on this cold and lonely night. I'm filled with warm happy memories of a night I can't forget. Staring up at Vai and co as they rocked the venue for what didn't seem nearly long enough. Then waiting in the foyer eagerly with a few other fans to meet Steve for the first time, and say "hello" to a guy that has touched us all with his music.

I can't believe it was so long ago.

Here I am trying my hardest not to smile too much (don't ask me why...I don't know why the hell I tried to not smile), with Dr. Vai slightly distracted by one of his other fans... lol



Anyway, just thought I'd share the story.

Re: 2 years ago today...


Steve had his PhD awarded (honorary degree) in 2000 but the doctor I'm talking of earned his in '97 .....
It's a 50:50 choice considering there are only 2 other people in this pic.
