Hello, especially to any of the old BR Thread crowd who may still be out there!!
I've been enjoying Paul Mccartney at the BBC on the tele and there were some great memories of the tours from the last 20 years.
Looking forward to Glastonbury!
Oh, man! What a night! I'm just now getting home after The Bayonets' record release party. In a word, the party was amazing! I had never seen the Bayonets perform live before, so it was real treat getting to see them play! First off, a little rundown of the day's events. I'll post some pics sometime tomorrow. I got to the venue with a friend of mine around 5:30 or so. To our surprise, we were the first ones in line! Besides ourselves, one other guy was waiting in line as well. After waiting about 30 minutes or so, a man who worked at the No Vacancy asked if we wanted to come inside and cool off because it had been a really hot day in L.A. today. Of course, we obliged, and we were able to get in a couple of hours early and see the Bayonets run through their soundcheck, something we wouldn't had been able to do otherwise. Soundcheck lasted about an hour or so, and they ran through the songs that they played during the main show. After soundcheck was over, more people starting arriving, and then the band started to play around 9:30 or so, and continued playing until around 10:15. The setlist was as follows: "Cotton Candy," "Sucker for Love," "Whatchagot," "Smartphone," "EZ Rider," and "Crash! Boom! Bang!" All in all, a really fun, cool night! Also, Abe showed up too, and was definitely enjoying himself!
Sounds fantastic. Glad you had such a good time! Thanks for sharing.

Just got back today from Verona . The show was amazing , probably the best one I have ever been to !! and I have been to few ! lol It had rained a bit in the afternoon, but thankfully it was a beautiful clear, dry night , under the stars, really magical The amphitheatre was so beautiful and acoustics were great .Paul voice was really strong and clear. The audience were fab , singing along sooo loudly. I loved the set list , so many new songs that i'd always wanted to hear played live one day . At the end of the night ,the first encore of 3 songs, Day Tripper, Hi Hi Hi & Get Back all included Brian playing lead , and he sounded amazing !! ( we thought it should have been called the Brian Ray encore )
Fantastic!! The photographs of the setting look amazing. It must have been a very special show. Glad you enjoyed it!
