    I WAS AT THE SHOW IN LONDONDERRY, NH THIS FRIDAY.
    I WAS WORRIED THAT I’D HEAR THE SAME SONG IN DIFFERENT KEYS ALL NIGHT LONG; BOY WAS I WRONG!

    WHAT A GREAT SET LIST. WELL PACED AND THOUGHT OUT.

    THERE WERE PROBABLY 3 PEOPLE THERE UNDER 40 SO A LOT OF 50 AND 60 SOMETHINGS WENT TO THE SHOW.

    IT WAS HEARTWARMING TO SEE A MAN GET UP AND PLAY AND GET THE JOB DONE AFTER ALL HE’S BEEN THROUGH.

    JOHNNY DOESN’T HAVE A STRONG VOICE ANYMORE, BUT HE STILL HITS ALL THE RIGHT NOTES, WHEN YOU CAN HEAR THEM.

    YOUR SOUND MAN BURIED YOU GUYS, JOHNNY IN PARTICULAR. VOCALS WERE THERE AND THEN THEY WEREN’T. SAME FOR JOHNNYS’ GUITAR. I WOULD BET A HUNDRED DOLLARS THAT THE GUITAR HAD AN EQ ON IT AT THE SOUNDBOARD THAT LOOKED LIKE A V. NO MEAT TON THE INSTRUMENT. WHEN HE DID PLAY THE BOTTOM STRINGS THEY WERE RIGHT THERE ALONG WITH THE RYTHYM GUITAR PLAYER AND SOUNDED GREAT, BUT PARTS OF HIS SOLO’S WERE UNDER THE RYTHYM AND BASS FOR A BIG PORTION OF THE NIGHT.
    THE LAST THREE SONGS USING THE GUITAR SHOWN ON THE PICTURE THAT YOU HANDED OUT AT THE END OF THE SHOW, WERE A LOT OF HIGH END AND GOT LOST. [SLIDE NOT WITHSTANDING] WHEN YOU DID HEAR WHAT JOHNNY PLAYED, YOU COULD TELL IT WAS AWESOME.

    THERE WERE A FEW MOMENTS THAT THE BAND LOST EACH OTHER AND THE BASS PLAYER HAD JOHNNY STEP UP A KEY AND I KNEW IT WAS BECAUSE THE BAND COULDN’T HEAR THEMSELEVES WELL, ESPECIALLY WITH THE HAND SIGNALS GOING ON FROM THE BASS PLAYER TO THE SOUNDMAN.

    AND I WAS 5 ROWS BACK ABOUT 10 OR 12 FEET FROM JOHNNY AND HAD A MAIN SPEAKER FROM THE PA RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.

    SO THAT ASIDE, I WANT TO THANK THE BAND FOR A GREAT SHOW, A TERRIFIC SELECTION OF MUSIC, GREAT PLAYING AND TO GET THAT PICTURE WHEN WE LEFT THE SHOW WAS SIMPLY AND OLD SCHOOL CLASSY THING TO DO.

    YOU CAN’T COME BACK SOON ENOUGH FOR ME, AND WHEN YOU DO COME BACK, THERE WILL BE A LOT MORE OF MY FRIENDS COMING ALONG WITH MY 14 YEAR OLD SON. HE NEEDS TO SEE A MAN PLAY THE GUITAR THE WAY THAT JOHNNY PICKS IT, THERE’S VERY FEW GUYS I’VE SEEN PLAY IT THAT WAY AND IT WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE.

    I HOPE ALL THE BAND AND JOHNNY ALL HAVE GOOD HEALTH AND RETURN IN WARMER WEATHER NEXT TIME. THANKS FOR A GREAT SHOW.
