Rock Never Stops Tour

Post by by-tor » Fri Aug 12, 2005 10:03 am

Last night I went to see the Rock Never Stops Tour featuring Firehouse, Quiet Riot, Ratt and Cinderella. While the show was interesting to say the least, the drummer for Cinderella did about a 5 minute solo. The first and last 30 seconds of the solo I have never heard before, but the rest of it was clearly taken from parts of Neil's solo's over the years. After the show, we were all getting autographs, and I mentioned to the drummer that his solo was "interesting". He looks at me and says, "You could hear Neil Peart in it, huh?" (I was wearing a FBN t-shirt). When I first heard it, I was kind of upset that he was 'stealing' from Neil, but we ended up talking for about 45 minutes, and he turns out to be as big of a Rush fan as any of us on here.

Yeah, the other guitarist (Jeff I think his name is) would lob his guitar to a roadie everytime he switched guitars or left the stage (the roadie almost dropped it once). Another cool thing is that for his acoustic stuff, he was using an Omega Concern stand.

I tell you, Cinderella sure put on a good show. Ratt I never saw in their prime, but my band did open for them about 5 years ago in Couer'd Alene Idaho, at the Cotton Club. Blottzer and De Martini were the only origional members. Jon Corabbi and Jizzy Pearl and some dude on Bass were the rest of em. Cool show. We opened for Amsterdam who opened for an all girl AC/DC tribute band "Helles Belles" then RATT.

I actually was arrested right in front of the Jazz cellar. open container in a car(bottle of Jack between my legs) delinquincy of a minor (she said she was 21) and concealed weapon. HPD went pretty light on me, but the Navy hammered me. I did not know you could do that many things with a toothbrush :shock: There was also a warehouse, the name escapes me but it was just an empty warehouse with some risers. I saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers there before they were big, I think the ticket was like $5 and I also saw the Dead Milkmen there. They were cool. also I was front row for A Flock of Seagulls at the Wave. Their bass player was this huge black guy and he rocked. Yeah go ahead and laugh at me but the Flock really put on a great show.

I wish I ended up going at Mohegan Sun, so I could have heard the solo.
I almost went, but changed my mind.
Interesting.

I wonder if the warehouse was the old Club Harliquin? That place had more black light per square inch than Studio 54.
My old 1st. Sergeant retired right before I E.T.S'ed. and is a HPD motor cycle cop....... Toothbrush, what a riot........... They all say they are 21 Soup, even when they are 40. :razz:
