Hi Dave!
I was one of those who were singing "happy birthday" in Modena!

I had never seen the Steve Vai Band live before... it was incredible, I'm sorry you had so many problems on stage, but believe me it was a super show anyway! And (right, I think you've been told this a million times) you're a superb guitar player! Of course you are, you're touring with Steve Vai!

The biggest surprise to me was discovering it was your birthday. It was mine, too. I've been given the ticket for the show as a present. And the show itself has been a present, to me. You can tell this the band, if you like!

Hope to see you next time you'll come in Italy.

Re: Tour Diary Responses- Vai: Real Illusions 2005 - Europe

Good idea.. here's a note on last night. The electric part of my solo sucked! I'm trying to incorporate a few ideas that I used on STSA. Like the 7 string - 1st string, string skipping technique. But the Legacy doesn't hold the 7 string low end together very well and to me, it sounds like crap. So I haven't been thrilled with that part of the solo. I'm changing it.

Hi Dave,

I saw you guys in munich. What a great show...
Unfortunately the P.A.-System sucks. But you did a very good job.
Thanks for such a great concert!

Re: Tour Diary Responses- Vai: Real Illusions 2005 - Europe

Thanks Sledge! Glad you enjoyed the show.

Tonight's show in Cologne was very good. Great sound, great crowd. I changed my solo again tonight and I love it. The crowd seemed to dig it aswell even though the acoustic fell off the stand, I stepped on the A/B switch (from wireless to hardwire) instead of the amp channel switcher and the band came in late. Other than that is was fantastic!

On another note, Jeremy now has a website up and running. www.jeremy-colson.com. It's brand new and a great way to get info on Jeremy. Check it out.

Later.

Dave

Hope the guitar wasn't hurt, didn't look too good

My father and I both agree that it was the best concert we've ever seen (and he's seen a lot ), thank you for a great night.

Thanks bro. I had a great time. The comedy with the acoustic guitar and such just made me laugh. I loved it.

Oh yes it was fun especially jeremy's performance with steve and the 7 exits at the sardinias tour bus i hope your guitar didn't take any damage and your new 7 string ibanez with the skulls on the body was pretty cool

thanks for the great show

Hey Dave,
Glad to see you got out and about for some sightseeing. You guys have such a tight schedule. It must be nice to head out and take in some sights.
Stay well. See you on the 26th.
