Post G3: Nottingham
Just got back. Was a really good show.

I had aftershow passes. I met Joe Satriani. He seemed pretty keen to hurry us along... So I just congratulated him, complimented him on his hat and then left.

Steve Vai is ill... I assume everyone else was keeping him company.

I'm kinda wishing I hadn't been so excited about winning the aftershow passes.

I'll write a proper review tomorrow.

The show was absolutley awesome :D

I missed Fripp's set... the show was due to start at 7:30pm... we (my brother and I) arrived at 7:35pm because of traffic. We had missed Fripp's set completley :shock:

Vai was up next... and, to be honest... he sucked :twisted:
Actually... I have a whole new respect for Vai... The guy is a god :shock:
I knew he was very good... but, even comapred to Satch, he is on a completley different level :shock:
His set kicked off with shyboy and went into giant balls of gold. Some of the others played were whispering a prayer, the reaper, and for the love of god.

I don't know much Satch... but his set was very impressive.
he started off with cool number 9 and some old classics. But he finished off with is there love in space. I was very impressed to say the least.

The jam was good... rocking in the free world was in there somewhere...
It was mainly just Satch and Vai... Fripp felt the need to sit in the corner all the time. Although he did stand up once. From what I heard, he ruled.

I'm still waiting for my film to be processed... I've got a pic of myself with Satch at the aftershow... (I got my backplate signed too) But none of during the show. Photography was banned... and my camera has a 'pre flash' so it flashes a few times, making it easy to spot where the flash comes from... I didn't really like the idea of getting my camera taken off me.

badasstommyboy (he hasn't posted here in a long time I don't think) risked it though... and made me wish I had of. He got an great pic from Vai's set.
I'll let the picture speak for itself...

If you EVER get a chance to go see G3 (or just Vai :P )... DO IT!
