So, this last weekend was the NAMM show in Anaheim, CA. For those of you that know, yes, its a place where new music gear is shown, sold, and tried out.. artists, celebrities, and industry get shmooze, perform, and get drunk. This year's show was very positive, especially after last year's funereal attendance. The Hilton's remodel was not very popular, but some highlights: Uli Jon Roth's new Dean Guitar, the Young Dubliners at the Marriott lobby, seeing my friends and colleagues: March Koch and Tom Kikta (Duquesne univ.), Glen MacCarthy, drummers Charlie Waymire and Glen Sobel... hanging with Scorpions drummer James Kottak, singer Mark Boals, dinner with Wild West Guitars and Matt and Debbi Scurfield. Thanks gang!
