The "Gods of Metal" walk among us
Howdy Mega-friends and fans. Just musing over the exhilaration I've been feeling over the current Heaven and Hell tour. We've got a little less then two more weeks ahead of us on this last leg, and from Canada and through the States, it's just been an outstanding vibe.
Of course props go out to Black Sabbath (I still have trouble calling them Heaven & Hell) for some truly inspirational performances.
Big props to Machine Head for getting out there and standing tall... Great band!
O.K... so, my tech Fred and I are having a meeting in Cincinnati to prep some gear for our up and coming European tour. We're catching a bite in a little restaurant/bar called Havana's located in a mall walkway under the Hilton. I've got a view of the Mall area in front of the restaurant. A group of three Metal-heads catches my eye. One tall pumped up guy in a cut off tee shirt, one slightly more conservatively dressed fellow and one smaller dude with an ultimately curled-down-to-his-back Old school "Metal doo" (If anyone knows one, I do).
