You didnt say! I had a tuner there if you wanted it
Report on the festivities:
Friday evening and beyond...
Pete (welshpete) and Paul (Pablo) arrive in town and we all head off to the Gothic temple of rock that is the Intrepid Fox. After several ales we decide to get some food and go for 'death by garlic' at Garlic and Shots.
Several more beers later and some volcanic garlic bread we are ready for some more beers.
Off we go to the Phoenix bar which is a thespian hangout next to the theatre. We are joined by Richard (spagbol) and Darren Hunt (from Wipeout) for many more ales until the small hours. Some time was spent trying to decide whether some of the thespians were inhabitants of Libya or perhaps even visitors to the island of lesbos.
A 3 am Kebab stop off later and it is time to crash out.
Saturday (late morning)
I fall out of bed in need of tea and Paul heads off to Denmark Street for a GAS injection.
A quick tidy up and amp set up and before I have actually got up Haydn (monkeyboy) arrives with a flame guitar and a Fernandes seven string.
First vid on: Satch and Steve Vai
at Seville 1992
Paul and Ilia (dex) get back from Denmark Street and Richard, Darren and Jamie (Darren's bro) arrive and we have a little noodle and start to watch:
Steve Vai live at the Astoria on which we see Jamie at 13.01 in the crowd!!
Art (artist) arrives and more watching and random noodling insues.
After the DVD time for a bit of a jam before people head off for DT. Jamie wows us with some fast licks followed later by some excellent PG and Satch licks from Art and Paul. Which was time to put the PG and Mr. Big vids on!!
After messing about with the seven string Fernandes it is time for a quick pizza before heading out for ale.
A 'none more black' nor 'none more metal' night at the Marlborough Head is in order with lots of scantily clad and buxom rock chics thrown in.
Ears full of metal, bellys filled with beer and eyes filled with eye candy we head off for more of the same at the sleazy dive nightclub Gossips.
Lots of beers later and we are joined by Darren, Jamie and Richard for some oogling, drinking and woeful singing and drumming to Iron Maiden
, Bon Jovi and other cheesy rock acts while I embarassed myself by telling them about all the cheesy 80s rock bands I had seen!!!
Get back about 4 am!
Hangover from hell.
Paul goes off to enjoy GAS and catch a train and I die a slow death of over indulgence only partially aswaged by water, tea and warmed up pizza from last night!
I did watch a few movies on TV though... For you Eyes only, Jaws, Dude wheres my car and Trainspotting
I shall now go and try and a further addition of life giving tea and some more paracetamol!
None more metal \m/
