Post Memory Lane
I was just thinking back to the old days in Hollywood & had a few memories. Three distinct ones to be exact:

1) The boys pulling out a killer half-time rendition of "Sacrifice"

2) A, just as killer, medley of "Gone Too Far" into "Stop In The Name Of Love"

3) At Scott's farewell, Jeff going on about how Scott originally auditioned as a singer & then them busting out I think it was "Living After Midnight".

Anyone else?

Well, I have never seen RX live. And I was born on 1987. But let's see...


The story I would always tell everyone. I was a kid, I just started out guitar and I obviously would like progressive music. I liked Dream Theater. Obviously, I would search for other progressive dudes. Came up with Planet X, and Symphony X. Planet X was weird to me at that time (they still are, though I can hear the melodies better now), and I also knew about X-Japan. I saw Racer X in Limewire and thought, "Dudes, all bands with 'X' on their band names are awesome. Maybe Racer X is awesome too" and downloaded the one with most users. SCARIFIED.


Drum intro was insane. Guitars were "okay" neo-classical, sure.

Then the first bass solo came in. I died. I still get goosebumps over that bass lick.


I wanna see Racer X live. I HAVE to see Racer X live. I'll die a happy man by then. 8)

I'm just trying to come to terms with my grief over not being at the NAMM show. You are correct, "Stop In The Name Of Love" was awesome.

A kazoo is a ...well it is a kazoo! A piece of plastic that makes like a whistle sound. We all did it at once and it was supposed to be recorded and put on the never recorded 3rd album if I remember correctly. It has a racer x sticker on it. I will try and post a picture of it when I have time. It is hilarious looking!
