Tuesday The 14th of November 2006.


What a nite. What a show. Holy shit! Being right at the front dead centre I was absolutely trippin' as the lights went down, still not recovered from a surprise guest spot with Eddie coming out and busted a tune with support Kings of Leon who were awesome again. I cant even begin to try and describe the next two hours that followed...I dont have the brain skills to convey the feeling into words..just mental...Completely different set from last night, opening with Go and Mike playing the lead solo with the guitar behind his head! Then the big guns kept firing, hittin' the gold with Last Exit, Not For You, Blood and Lukin...And then Eddies bottle of red came over the fence during a massive jam session on Crazy Mary... a rare playing of Leash too went down a treat.. and yes..as you can see from the photo above I managed to scramble for a flyin McCready pick during Life Wasted (and left me with a nice lump on the shin!), totally stoked to get one from the man who was completely on fire the whole nite, with an absolutely ball tearing solo during Even Flow and Alive...man, I was checkin' my pocket every 2mins to make sure it was still in there cause I didn't want to lose that bad boy!



The over 2hr set ended with Porch, Indifference then I totally was off choppers when they ripped into a cover of The Who's Baba O'Reilly to finish it all off...And with the house lights up and people moving out I looked about and there it was, half camouflaged on a grey chair. A little gold guitar pick with EV scrawled in red marker....I couldn't believe it..one from the man himself...so last nite was the greatest night of my life...

Okay I admit I get a little excited..just a little..but hey I've been worshipping these guys since the Green thrusted a cassette tape in my hands back when I was 12 and I was completely sold..and ten years later I still have the posters on my bedroom wall..
