    Last night I went to the Journey/Night Ranger
    concert in Syracuse N.Y. It was a great show and I was lucky to witness three great guitarist in one night(Neal Schon,Brad Gillis,& Jeff Watson). I would've taken one Eddie Van Halen,but we know how that goes.Anyway,during Night Ranger's set,Jack Blades introduced their keyboard player Alan Fitzgerald.He said you might have seen him with Van Halen on a couple of their tours during the 90's.Then he goes,"So who is it gonna be, Dave or Sammy?" The crowd goes nuts,shouting out a blur of names at once.Then he says,"Hold on,one at a time.Those who want Dave back let me hear ya."The place goes nuts."O.K, how many want Sammy? Guess what? The place goes nuts.It was pretty damn near even, although I would give the edge to Dave. The other thing I noticed was that there was definitely a gender preference in the crowd.I could hear more females cheering for Dave, and more guys for Sammy.I don't know if they have done this at any other of their shows,but it was pretty freakin cool to hear 7,000 people go nuts just when the words Van Halen were mentioned.During all of this Brad Gillis was playin' 'Ain't talkin' bout love' on the guitar quietly in the background. It really showed me that there really is still a huge interest for V.H out there.It also proved to my wife that I'm not the only V.H nut. Well, I just wanted to share this with ya. BTW, was anybody else there ?

    WOW! [img]smilies/eek.gif[/img] That sounds like it was a great show!

    I didn't know that Night Ranger was touring with Journey. That's great that they talked about VH, it's good to know that people still care about them. [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Very cool story, TT! Thanks a lot for sharing it with us! [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    I had no idea that Night Ranger was even touring this summer. Man, it's been a bad summer for me musically...I've missed seeing ANYONE when they came thru the Show-Me-State...

    Except one long haired singer from Indiana. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] I suppose that was worth it, though.

    The results of that poll surprises me. I didn't think that many people would vote for Sammy to come back. At this point, I'd take either of them. I just want to hear some VH again.

    I also didn't know that Night Ranger was now opening for Journey. When I saw them in Hartford, Peter Frampton was the opener along with John Waite.

    That's cool. Journey came thru Shreveport last weekend, with Peter Frampton, who btw was a blast to watch. Not only is he a good guitar player, but funny as hell also. Anyways, Journey was tight as expected, but that's cool that Night Ranger hooked up with Journey and did the VH poll. Van Halen's as got a lot of ppl pulling for em right now. They need this.

    Let me correct myself, My last sentence should read as follows, "Van Halen has alot of ppl pulling for them right now.."

    Sorry for the spelling error, YOU MAY RETURN TO YOUR REGULAR SCHEDUELED DYSFUCTIONAL LIVES! [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]
