That's right, not last night (well for a minute maybe), but more like this morning. I drove back from Vegas and it was 6 hours to get to Universal. Anyway, the rest of the tour past tonight is canceled, so I figured it was a rare opportunity to see the show. It started at 8:00 with the Suicide Girls. It was pretty cool to have a live lesbain sex show of sorts right in from of you. No complaints here!
Anyway, then Helmet came on. Some of their songs really rock. Page Hamilton rips- he's looking kind old.
Sebastian Bach then came out. Metal Mike and Bobby Jarzombek are way too good to be playing Skid Row tunes, but seeing Bobby play was just amazing. He is the best metal drummer! I'll go back tonight to see him play again...
At almost midnight, G-n-R came on. They sounded really good. All three guitarists are really good, but it's all about Bumblefoot. Ron Thal rocks and it was cool seeing him play live. Their drummer- whoever he was- was really good (I thought Brain was still in the band, but I guess not?) Some of the old songs really rocked. I remember My Michelle having a great groove to it. I'm not sure about the new songs yet.
Just when 3 guitarists weren't enough, Izzy Stradlin comes out. He shouldn't have bothered, but whatever...
They played into the wee hours of the morning. People were passed out in the lobby and many were sleeping int their seats. I left after 2:00. Bumblefoot was shredding on the guitar, but I needed to get home and sleep. I'll probably go again tonight/ tomorrow morning (Last chance) and be WORTHLESS at work tomorrow just several hours later.
A long time ago, my buddy and I were walking out of the Racer X concert at the Country Club in Reseda (must have been '86). These bunch of junkie looking freaks handed us a flyer. We took one look, crumbled it up and threw it at them. It was Guns -n- Roses. We still laugh about that to this day.
