    So who is going to the NAMM show?

    This will be my first time going without having to sneak in. :loco:

    One of my artists (Jeungri Hori of We Are They) is sponsored by Taye Drums and they are giving her a pass and me one! :kickass:

    Lets create a Iron Maidens NAMM group so we can meet up and hang out!! :kickass::kickass:

    this is what I saw on blabbermouth as the source

    RACER X will perform at the 2009 NAMM (National Association of Music Merchants) show, which will be held January 15-18 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

    Commented RACER X guitarist Paul Gilbert: "Ibanez guitars is celebrating the 20th anniversary of my PGM guitar with a concert at the NAMM show."

    The concert will take place on Saturday, January 17, 2009 at the Sheraton Park Ballroom and will not be open to the public.

    Paul said, "It is very exciting for me to be the featured artist for Ibanez this year, so I am glad that I can do something special for this concert. I can't think of anything better than a killer set of RACER X!" He added, "I can't wait to play some killer heavy metal with my favorite metal band!"

    Andy Timmons and his band will open the show, followed by a solo set from Paul Gilbert, and finally RACER X. The RACER X lineup will consist of Paul Gilbert, Scott Travis (JUDAS PRIEST), Jeff Martin (BADLANDS, MSG) and John Alderete (THE MARS VOLTA).

    The last RACER X performance in the U.S. was held on May 25, 2001. It was filmed for the live DVD "Live At The Whisky - Snowball Of Doom".

    The problem with going to some of those shows is that even if you have a NAMM pass it doesnt guarantee you entry to the show. Normally, you have to get invited to those shows. I am definitely going to try and get in to see Racer-X tho!

    This is going to be a slide show that will be shown in memory of all our fellow musicians who passed during the last year. I dunno, it may be pretty moist in there, so bring some tissues. I am glad Michelle is included and that the word is spreading about this presentation.

    Lightweight bass amps have become huge and several makers may be having new high power in stoopid light offerings.

    Ernie Ball has a few new basses coming out in interesting configs.

    As always I'm all over the G&L stuff but really just bass stuff in general everywhere. Also hanging with my bass brethren wherever.

    Of course hanging with y'all is always a blast. :kickass:

    You gonna swing up to Fender and check out the Dave Murray signature Strat?
