GREAT DVD, but to be 100% honest I was a little disappointed by Greg. I don't feel he was at his best. Far too much soloing at the very top of the neck.
If you're referring to the Gentle Hearts tour, I had just read an article a few minutes ago and when he found out he was going on tour, he only had a month to prepare, tons of responsibilities in the states and when he got to Japan, they wanted to do some changes to the songs, add stuff, and ONLY TWO REHEARSALS!
"Guglielmo Malusardi: In effect, it is possible for guitar fans to listen and see you playing live on the "Gentle Hearts Tour 2004" live CD and live DVD, together with Japanese bassist Tetsuo Sakurai, (released under his name) and super busy extraordinaire drummer Dennis Chambers. Let's talk about that tour.
Greg Howe: The live tour was put together pretty quickly, I had about one month advance notice and some of the songs were really complicated, plus you know, at that time I was living in Pennsylvania with a lot of responsibilities, so I was trying to find the time to get prepared for that quickly, so it was really difficult. The experience was fun, but it was not the way that I would have liked to have been featured you know, I felt like most of the stuff they wanted do was featuring me, and I learnt my parts pretty much off the CD and that was hard enough and then when we met they told me. "Well we'd like to change this, to add that, we'd like it if you could take the solo for another thirty two bars." Aaaaaaah, maaaaaaaan, jeeeeeeeeeez..."
