    On the way to Raleigh, NC. Me and my father were cranking the Odyssey, and all that jazz, preparing to see Symphony X! I was so excited, and I really wanted to try to meet my heroes!

    That day I got to meet Romeo, Russell, Jason, LePond, and Pinella!
    I actually talked to Russell on 3 different occasions (which was so awesome)!

    Me and my Dad took Pinella to Starbucks to buy and have a drink with him, it was so cool getting to talk to a legend, and discuss so many cool things.

    So the show starts and I am at the toward the front when Warbringer and Iced come on. Instead I let a guy take my spot (since he liked IE so much), and I told him just give me the spot afterward (he was down with it). So I finally get to switch with him, and the people in front of me didn't want to watch Symphony X, so I was on the front row! :Spin:

    The show finally starts, and Romeo is directly up front, and shredding like no ones business, during the show Russell and I had some fun (fan to performer like). So it was so awesome!

    That day I had also meet Glenn (once there online merch guy, we talked and became friends, very nice guy) and he got me this awesome shot of me in the light up front (so rad)! Thank you Glenn and the Symphony X guys for a great night! Also for my father being super awesome, and taking some cool shots!

    That's awesome man! Glad you had a great time. It's cool you got to meet and talk to the guys. The first time I saw SX was just over 10 years ago, and I'm going to see them again on the 12th. I can't wait.

    Thanks for sharing, but Symphony X is not very popular around here! :lol:
