The only time I baby my guitars is during transit. Just as long as I dont break them.
Otherwise, I don't really give much thoughts on wear and tear. I play with my guitars as often as time permits. That is what they're meant for.
I went thinking that by the end of the show, I'd be able to tell myself "I overpaid for this concert. Axl sucks and I can play Slash's part better than he can."
I was severely disappointed. They are still very entertaining. And I must say, I liken the experience as seeing Taj Mahal for the...
This time they were only late by 1/2 hour. I guess you could expect professional punctuality if it wasn’t pouring.
All in all, they totally exceeded my expectations. I brought along my most valuable employee, and shared with him a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
I had an amazing time.
Axl’s vox was shit for the first hour, but he was hitting the high notes towards the end. They came out for an extended encore, and belted our their greatest hits. The crowd simply went berserk. 3-hour set with zero rest.
Full props and respect to the band for playing...
