    VH Rehearsal in Reno!

    Hey Kiddies!

    Thanks to the tip here, myself and a couple friends headed down to the events center to see what we could see. Well, it was pretty cool. When we got there they had the back roll up door partially open so you could see that they were moving stuff around but I really wasn't sure if anything was really going on...until Eddie and crew started noodling around! Pretty soon Ed was busting out some Cathedral and the next thing you know they're busting into You Really Got Me. Dave wasn't around apparently so it was all music and back ground vocals. It was great to hear Ed and Wolfgang isolated. They sound really good! Not MA good but clean. Anyway, after that it was I'm the One, RWTD, and Romeo Delight. We could actually see all three playing through the side door. Ed was playing an ivory Wolfgang and Wolf was going back and forth between the red striped, blue striped, and a sunburst bass. Pretty cool shit I must say. BTW, the security guys were pretty good about us hanging out, although the old guy was razzing us about getting tazed!

    Awesome, RB! Thanks for the update!

    How did Cathedral sound? The consensus seemed to be that he was having issues nailing it at all before the break...

    That's awesome. Sounds like the show is on for tonight. I can't wait to read the reviews.

    High in the Sierras...that's awesome! So the security guys that told me about the rehearsal were right!

    If that's the case, there may be another one in an hour at 10:00am! I would walk over there and check it out but we have an ultrasound for my wife scheduled at that time. I'm going to have her drop me off at around 11:00am after the ultrasound and I'll take some more pics or video if there is anything going on.

    Unfortunately I only had my phone camera. Ed looks like a little white spot on the one pic I did get! Can't wait until tonight. 11th row, Ed's side woohoo!!!! I'm curious to see if there is a full rehearsal with Dave at 10am. That should be awesome!

    Our second child. We are 12 weeks along and it's just the routine U/S to make sure everything is going well. Our daughter is 20 months old right now so we'll have 2 by October! It's going to be a completely different world!

    I'll do what I can. On my way to work this morning they already had 5th street gated off (that's the street where I took the pics from yesterday.) I'm going to have my wife drop me off near 4th street and I'll just walk around back if security will let me. I brought my better camera today with a good zoom lens and it has unlimited video so I'll see what i can get!

    And another thing I am curious about. Does anyone know if there is an opener tonight? I haven't heard or seen anything about that. The security guys didn't know yesterday either. They were asking me! lol

    Wow, congrats on the expected delivery! Our oldest two are all of 17 months apart, which made for some intersting nights for the Mrs and me early on, but it was/is still soo cool, even though they are both teenagers now.

    Get what you can, if you can. The u/s and your wife are clearly the priority, but you knew that already.
