    Unfortunately yes - you got it, it's Martin over here...
    Can't make it to Hellendoorn, I'm afraid, but will be at Zoetermeer for sure!

    :kickass:

    Already wished you a good trip by mail, Ron, but here's another one: have a safe flight over here and enjoy the tour! May the venues be filled to the brim and the sparks fly from the strings (figuratively speaking, of course)! :headbang:

    No, not really, but they did play an Elvis-cover tho (which kicked mayor ass!! Didn't know Marty could sing hehe) in which Ron gave an amazing freaking frenzy solo, but I couldn't hear him well enough. Marty had this huge chorus on his sound, a bit overwhelming for Ron's sound. But when both were playing lead or Ron would play rhythm, it sounded massive! All in all it's been a kickass show, and even more to seeing Ron performing again \m/

    Wonder how many beers Marty had tho lol

    [edit]and I shouldn't forget mentioning the slamming rhythm-section!! Awesome!

    I wonder if I should take Ron to get Madurodamned tomorrow. The potential for silliness is endless, there! Better get that 2G card for my camera first :D

    No worries - enjoy! Have to say, my arms felt like lead after taking well over 600 pix at the show!

    On the show itself: I knew what we were in for: mostly Loudspeaker and Music For Speeding stuff, with a few Dragon's Kiss tunes thrown in (unfortunately not Saturation Point), and of course no Cacophony or earlier material. I was disappointed with the fact that most of it was the newer, simpler stuff, since I knew that beforehand, but it did leave a bit of a bad taste, in the sense that the earlier stuff is more challenging and interesting from a gitarista point of view. In other words: Marty can do a whole lot better, not to mention the fact that Ron doesn't really get a chance to display his amazing talents at all. But it was a fun hour and a half and especially talking to Ron before and after the show was great - the main thing I went for, to be honest. Can't wait for the Blotted Science CD!
