    Default Chicago shows

    I went to the 1st Chicago show and it completely rocked! It was great to see Eddie and the boys jam all night and have a great time together.
    Eddie had a few gear problems but it all worked out fine IMO.
    Anyone else go to this show??? Tell me what you thought of the show.
    Just go for it!

    That was my Chicago show, too! Really great! (Although I wish I had a better seat!) The equipment malfuntion sucked, but it was still a great show!

    I was at the second show in Chicago, in the Golden Ring for the second time. It was awesome! I hope they keep the Rings forever, but I'm sure they won't. IF we ever see them again, but let's not get into that now.

    I had made hemp bracelets for the boys in Grand Rapids, MI, and Mike and Sammy wore theirs. For the Chicago show I made the same ones and when I handed one up to Mike, he looked at it, then looked at me, and said, "Hey! What's up!?" I was SO excited that he remembered me! Later he gave me his beer. I still have the Solo cup today! LOL

    Sammy wore his bracelet too. I have some pics from cjvanhalen, I think it was. Hopefully this link is still active:

    Yep, it is. Just type in cjvanhalen to see all the pictures.

    "Hey, thanks for the bracelet! Was that one for me?" - Michael Anthony to me in the Golden Ring in Grand Rapids, MI July 9, 2004
    July 9, 2004 - Mike pressed a guitar pick into my hand!

    "Hey! What's up!?" - Mikey, upon recognizing me in the Golden Ring in Chicago after getting his second bracelet, July 21, 2004
    "What is uuuuuuuuuup!!!???" - Mike to me in Detroit, May 12th, 2005, after receiving third bracelet.
    "You found me again!" - Mike to me in Detroit, Nov. 2, 2007

    Default Chicago Show!

    Who else saw last years Chicago show. It rocked. Yet it was a disappointment that eddies guitars were messed up toward the end, and we had ta wait 5 minutes each time they messed up. Still, who saw the show? what did ya think of it?

    I saw the second night, which involved less guitar trouble! I liked the show, it was fun. I still go back and listen to the audio bootleg of it.

    I was at both Chicago shows as well. Did the 5* on night 2. Both shows were an absolute blast, but I was getting pretty pissed the first night when Eddie was having guitar troubles. But overall, two great shows. I met a lot of cool people at the 5* and had the time of my life!

    Second show was better than the first but I got goosebumps on the first night when Jump started. It seems like a lifetime ago, already.
