    I am 99% sure was hitting an e-cig, not a real one.

    Sound check was Unchained, RWTD, She's the Woman, Tattoo, LUTS and then Hang 'em High as we walked out. Surreal experience and awesome. Guys were totally loose and sooooo tight.

    Having been to the two Staples Center shows, I have to say this:

    I hope you guys get GGB, LUTS or something new like that. I will be insanely jealous, but so happy (and hoping for Youtubes).

    Have a great show!!!

    I have a funny feeling about something sneaking back into the setlist tonight from the last tour. No idea why, but I'm sensing either I'm The One or Little Guitars.

    .....It's probably the last beer I had activating the voices in my head.

    Jesus H tap-dancing Christ! Awesome! Flat out Awesome! I'm at a loss for adjectives. Re: Dave's voice problems . . . What problems? Bro was on, didn't trip. Aw there was maybe 3 or 4 words where his voice might have broke a bit but it was barely a small bump in the road. Hell he got stronger as the nite went on. Panama was a Tour de Force! His stage performance was off the charts! As loose and funny as I've ever seen him. The rest of the band, I can't add anything that hasnt already been said, just Outstanding! May post some later, gotta eat something now.

    Band was awesome last night!! Dave was ON FIRE with his ad-libs. Saw the first LA show (great) and I think this was even better

    Well I'm up having coffee. Holy cow what a show last night! I'd had it beat into my head over the last couple of weeks that Dave's voice was shot, he was an embarrassment, etc., etc. So I went into the show half expecting him to come out using sign language. My expectations were not incredibly high. Was I impressed! There actually Power behind his vocals. He wasn't exactly Tim Ripper Owens but the Dude was on! As I said there were a couple of words that his voice may have broken a bit on but it never slowed things down and he really came thru! Outside his vocal performance, his stage Schtick was incredible, best I've ever seen him! The stories he told. The story of Evelyn! ROTF!

    Rest of the band? Not much, just world-class musicianship is all. One other thing, the opening. The opening riffs of Unchained with their poster rising up on the backdrop will make the hair on the back of your nipples stand at attention. That opening Cannot be topped. EVER!

    I don't know what to do now. I've peaked. Maybe the mayans were right. This can't be topped. I will carry on I suppose.

    Met Scott from the forums here and his buddy. Had a beer with them. Cool Dudes!

    For some reason San Diego seems to click for them. People who saw LA shows last tour said pretty much same thing. Smaller arena, better acoustics maybe, who knows. I know probably 90 per cent of the crowd was on their feet all nite giving them love. Maybe that fuels 'em
