    Default San Antonio Show

    Jut got back. Had early entry tickets and in spite of GA, I was happy with how they handled for all 5 of us. Got front row center spots, nice crowd, great show. I will try and post a few pics in the morning. These guys rock.

    I was surprised by a few things at the show. Sammy is now playing Marshal amps (red lettering) and Gibson guitars. He also played a few fast riffs and really surprised me. I also focused allot on Mike and he played some fairly intricate bass more than a few times. It was a small place, really neat to see them in a place like that. We had no chairs and I liked it like that even at my old age, but the crowd was very nice, no real pushing or anything. Having a rial to lean on helped. Played some Zep a few times and some Who. Bad motor scooter was fun.

    One more thing. Davy Knowles the opener is great. Do not miss this. He's the best young guitar player I have seen in a long time. Blues like SRV. He's the first opener that I have come home and downloaded his CD. Check him out on Youtube.

    OK so Sammy is playing through Red logo Marshalls...but Is Joe also playing Marshalls? There's a hell of a lot of Marshall amps there in the first pic with regular logos and they cannot be all Sammy's.

    And wasn't Joe a Peavey guy?

    Something weird going on here.

    There is also a Marshall at Mikes side of the stage. Looks like the whole backline is Marshalls.

    Joe is playing Marshalls, white lettering, three setups. Sammy had two Marshalls, red lettering one on either side of Chad. Mike was playing Peavy I think. Sam's amps looked old school and sounded good.
