Twas a good concert

Well I went to see Alice in Chains on October 21, and it was probably the best concert I've ever been to. It's actually the only small concert I've ever been to. We live about 5 hours away from Winston-Salem which is where the concert was. It was at 8:00 (or so they said), so we left about noon. Got there around 5:30 and waited in line until then. A band called Hurt was playing first, I didn't really care for them, so I was more annoyed than anything having to listen to them. Since I got there fairly early, there was only one line of people between me and the crowd barrier at the front. One girl left after Hurt was done, so I got to move right to the front. I stood directly inbetween Mike Inez and William Duvall, the new singer (who was incredibly good btw). They played for about an hour and a half, all of their great, well known songs and a few of the lesser known ones. I got some really good pictures, and Jerry Cantrell handed me a guitar pick :azn: All in all it was a great night, and I wish it could have lasted forever.

Pics for anyone who'd like to see:

They were at the wife and I's annual escape from the kids this year as the headliner. It was July 29th

I'd been waiting for 15+ years to see them and they did not dissappoint.

Good pics. :) One of my favorite bands, I remember buying Facelift the day it came out on a reccomendation from the music shop dude who thought I'd like it.

Yes, I live. Although this time I actually have an excuse for barely posting. I haven't had much internet usage time for the last 6ish months. Or else I'd have been around a bit more. :shocked:

This thread is awesome. Why? Well, for two reasons. First, Zeppy's here! Yay! :jig: Second, Alice In Chains concert? Doubly awesome. Color me jealous.
 
Cool stuff, AiC is one of my favs. Never gotten a chance to see them live though.


Anyway, come around more often. HC and Isolde are getting worn out now that Hats is preggers.

What did you do if you didn't have the internet?
Anyway, I was disapointed that the pics were of the band.

Yes, Masuimi Max is quite the dish to look at. Excuse my retardedness but, who's HC? Either someone new since I was last here or I just don't remember.

I thought the lead singer was long dead? Anyway, must have been more than 10 years ago now, saw a lineup of Sepultura, Alice in chains, and Ozzy at the Skydome in Toronto. (Or maybe it was Prick, AiC, and NIN? My memory sucks, but I think the former, I think that show was prick, NIN, and Bowie). anyway, after we all left my buddy and I circled the Dome and eventually found an unlocked door back in. This was an hour after the show ended, so no one left around, and we wandered back into the stadium and down to the floor. We found the AiC tourbus and the bodygaurd was nice enough to knock for us. The guys let us in, chatted for a couple of minutes, and signed our ticket stubs, which was very cool. Even better, we had interrupted them in the process of shooting heroin and snorting coke of a couple of whoooores boobs, which for us at the time was pretty damn cool :tongue:

Looking back, they were pretty nice to a couple of kids interrupting their drug and sex fest, so I will always have a place in my heart for this band.

AiC also decided mid set to invite peope from the audience to replace the band members. My buddy Varga replaced the lead singer, and ran around the stage screaming for 5 minutes. Very cool bunch of guys.

2nd row centre, best seats I've ever had. I think I still have my sepultura pick they tossed to me, that must be worth a fortune! :rolleyes:

DEAD EMRYIONIC CELLS!!!!!

THink it was the no mopre tours tour, I'll have to check my albums to get dates, cause I know the 2nd AiC album was out.

Edit: Sigh, No More Tears was 91, and Dirt 92, so this was 14 years ago give or take.

I am old.

Though HC is already more important than I ever was, I'd like to note that I'm the user formerly known as Nword.

I find it funny how the people with low post counts think people with high post counts are more important. I think it is an intro/extrovert thing really.

I guess I find it odd because we have had so many debates on how everyone is equal on the lowest levels and no one is more valuable than others.

I'd have a much bigger ego if I had my other 1055 or whatever posts added to my current count :wink2:

As for judging importance, I feel myself to be an obscure user in part because I so very rarely contribute much opinion to any debate here.

I also have that common idea, for right or wrong, that I'm the focus of a post that is not specifically directed at me or anyone :smiley:

I was just rambling there, if you want a specific post about you I'd be glad to make one. Err another one besides this one I mean.
