Yes it is available at the shows. In the UK it will be 15 Sterling. I'd like it to be cheaper, but now that FN distributes it, they call the shots on pricing.

But if you pick it up, look for me after the show, I'll be happy to sign it or chat if that means anything to ya

Billy's such a great player, but the sound was screwed man! It cant be like this every night can it ? Anyway... It cold've been better if you werent panned so far right.

Oh and you did a great job backing up vai on freak show excess !!
Hope to see you and your new band live someday.
Thank you for the heads up. I'll let the sound guy know and have him take care of the mixing issue.

Hi Dave, saw you in Berlin yesterday. Had the EVO Experience.
I met you Jeremy and Jeremy outside of the "huge" Columbiaclub right before the Soundcheck.
I really didnīt know that strange woman who asks Jeremy after Billy!
Your playing was fantastic yesterday and I bought your CD. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. I think the sound was much better than in munich.
Keep as nice and friendly as you are, see you!

Hey Dave!
Hope, you're doing fine!

Just a short review of the berlin gig:

I really had a great time, witnessing you guys playing with so much BALLS (and I mean it!)!! I think you played an extremely hot set including a lot of those tender moments during the performance.

I liked your solo part a lot and it was good to see the acoustic part working (it unfortunately didn't work in Hamburg, two weeks ago), because it's a beautliful piece!

I'm -by the way- not only enjoying Your record (I picked up after the show), but feel motivated by the story behind it in terms of executing my (musical) visions as well.

I'll be watching out for the latest dave weiner news
Hope to see You on the road or somewhere else again soon!

Keep on doing your thing

Jona

P.S.: Jeremy kicks ass!!

Although having to sit down sucked, the gig in London was awsome. Your guitars are proper sexy Mr. Weiner! I greatly enjoyed the whole thing (had an Evo ticket too w00t!). Amazing evening!

Hiya Dave

I saw you guys in London last night (and I'm going again tonight in Wolverhampton) - just to say you guys totally rocked (and your solo was brilliant). It was really cool that your parents were in the audience too. Any chance that 'Mrs Weiners homemade crack' (A snack for the guys that didn't hear Vai talk about it at the London show) will be made available to the public? It sounds addictive lol Keep up the good work bud.

PS: I bought the cd ages ago, it rules

I thought maybe your parents would be in there last night. I think your mom should start packaging those pretzels for sale!

Tell them we say hello!

Dave,

London show was breathtakingly awesome! I was on such a high (from the show I mean lol) that I think I suffered withdrawals the next day (!)... then of course I picked up the ol' axe and bashed our a couple of hours practice.

Definately got to get the EVO ticket next time though...

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

Hahaha, the Frank Zappa thing was funny.

Here it is for anyone who didn't attend the London show:

Vai was talking about Frank going on this talk show, and the presenter was a smartass. So when Frank came on, the presenter (forgot his name damnit, but he had a wooden leg) said "with all that hair you must be a woman", and Frank responds "with that wooden leg, you must be a table". Hahaha, nobody takes the piss out of Frank Zappa with their dignity intact.

Awesome show, Dave's solo was pretty cool. Dave, by any chance could you get your mom to send me some of those pretzels, or at least put em on sale at some shows.
