// GUITAR HEAVEN //

Photo: Christie Goodwin

A great (very intimate and sweaty) gig in North London this weekend. It was great to try out some new tracks in the set. "No Stone Unturned" felt particularly good. It was fun to play a UFO cover as well...
Greenday came straight from Wembley stadium to do a surprise appearance just after our set. Stayed and checked out a few tracks!!?.....
Last night I attended the Classic Rock Awards. Could not believe how many great guitarists that showed up and sat together at the ceremony. Jeff Beck, Jimmy Page, Joe Perry, Billy Gibbons, Slash, Brian May, Ron Wood, Pete Townsend. Joe Bonamassa got up and blew everyone away with a song as well. Truly amazing night. And of course there was a small Marshall amp in everyone's goodie-bag as we left :)

Meeting up with the guys again Wednesday and Thursday to finalize the set list for Germany. Soon we're on the road again.

See you out there,
// Joey

although the flight got in late from Dublin it was worth the sprint to make the venue as concert was brilliant! Wel done guys - only request is that you dont forget your friends on the Emerald Isle and come and play a gig here in Ireland during 2010!!
