Friends, neighbors and shredders……..
Out in front of the Gojira/ Devin Townsend Concert
Doug was my guitar teacher back in high school.
Alphonso used to be my neighbor back when he was in Santana.
(he thanked my friend on vid for going to the show- funny dude)
This dude is an animal on the guitar

These guys rule. I caught 3 of their shows at NAMM. Greatness!
I saw Richie play twice at NAMM. Nobody can sing or play like him.
We just somehow stumbled upon this signing with some of my favorite drummers. The signed drum heads rule.
Stu is one of my heroes on the bass. I saw him play twice at the show, got a pic and an autograph. He even gave me his business card so I could e-mail him stuff. Awesome!
Meeting Steve Morse
One of my favorite guitarists of all time. I’ve seen him play live at least 20 times. We mostly talked about his old instructional videos from the 80s.
GWAR 2013 with Trippy the Clown
What a photo op this was at the RNRI booth….
Kill Devil Hill saying hello……
Being at the very front of the line for the Metal Masters signing certainly didn’t suck. And Billy Sheehan was the last person at the table, which was really cool.
Bumblefoot and Tony Harnell performing together
Last show of NAMM – I watched them play, said hi to the guys afterwards, got an autographed poster and headed straight home. Perfect ending to a great 4 days.
BLABBERMOUTH used my footage of one of their tunes: http://www.blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=185424.
