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.
