    Heh....I know I say just about the same things after every show but, damnit...it's true...lol!

    Went to the show tonight with my friends Sharon, Dave, Nicko, and Julie...and we had a really good time watching Damage Inc, the Metallica cover band. I know I'll piss off a couple of Metallica lovers here, but DAAAAMMMNN....I'm not sure these guys aren't BETTER than the real thing. They laid down a show that dared the Maidens to top it.....Not to worry, though....our ladies were MORE than up to the task.

    I'm not sure I can give a good reason why, but I seemed to really enjoy this show more than any other one I can remember. It was terrific and everyone was on fire...and the crowd was REALLLLY pumped for the show. I say this everytime...but it's true everytime...Courtney shreds...absolutely amazing...Wanda....man I love watching those fingers fly across the bass...Linda seemed to be enjoying herself a LOT tonight....smiling a LOT and playing the hell out of those drums... Kirsten has an amazing voice and her increasing confidence on the stage is really showing....and Sarah...my favorite.....my dear you were on FIRE tonight. I tried to put the fire out with that white towel, but to no avail....and thank you for the pick you put in my hand!

    Oh....for the new girls that don't know me, I was the bald heavy guy right up against the stage in the center....sweating all over everything....LOL!

    Setlist....not guaranteed to be 100% accurate...

    Aces High
    2MTM
    The Prisoner
    Wasted Years
    Moonchild
    The Trooper
    Losfer Words
    Powerslave
    ROTAM
    TNOTB
    CSIT
    POTO
    Iron Maiden

    Ok....must be time to wrap this up....fell asleep while looking at something...lol. Thanks ladies...fora great show!

    Well...umm...I do that on purpose....err...yeah. See...it's cause she's so smokin' hot up there, that there should be an H at the end of her name to show it. :D

    Damnit, she was on fire last night...and might I add it was obvious she was having a hell of a time!

    After seeing y'all back in Santee almost a month ago, I've told myself that even if I don't end up movin back to Cali (I'll know yay or nay early to mid september) that I gotta vacation more often, and I gotta not wait another almost two tears before seeing another Maidens show.
    Thanks for the pics, Paul, which give me such great nostalgia!!

    As I love Maiden and Metallica and Maidens and Damage Inc.
    please Maidens bring Damage Inc. more often. Once a year
    is not enough. The combination was magical again.

    It was great to see and talk to you Knight brothers.
    I think I heard Staw before but I might be mistaken (it could been
    from Creeping Death (the band) ) I was so hungry for DM songs but
    since there was a substitute drummer the set was all classics .
    A set with Creep and Master, the best 2 live songs ever of Metallica,
    can't be less than great.

    During Seek Linda and Courtney joined Damage Inc. and it was so
    memorable. To hear Courtney being a Metallica fan made me
    happy.


    The crowd was better than usual. It was nice to see friends like
    Chris(Khan), Sharon and Nicko. During Aces High there was even
    some pushing.

    Moonchild, SIT , Rime (it was great to hear last 2 from Kristen
    first time and also her refugee outfit a la Bruce was so cool) and
    my all time personal best live song choice Phantom were the
    highlights. Also 666 was great with participation.

    I've been seeing Maidens since 2002 and after all these shows, first
    time ever I got to sing along harmonies with Sara. It was so
    special and amazing for me. Thank you Sara! There's nothing like
    sharing the spirit.


    It was a great night with 2 great bands. I can't wait for the next
    time(s).

    This was my first time seeing the Iron Maidens, and I was really impressed. They handled Maiden's material with great skill, and are probably more like 80s Maiden than Maiden itself. I loved the focus on the 80s songs, including several that Maiden rarely if ever plays. I also appreciated all the Maiden props - more than one Eddie, Powerslave mask, Trooper flags, costumes, etc. Overall, it was a blast. I plan to come back and bring friends.

    Puckfiend, thanks also for the pics. Much better than my cell phone ones. I made the attached out of my favorite of your pics + Charlotte. Hope you don't mind me sharing.
