A dream come true!


I'm still on a cloud after seeing ASIA in Boston last night! The show was incredible. The venue was great & although there were no seats, there wasn't a bad "seat" in the house. After the camping adventure, I actually arrived at the venue around a hour before e start & perched myself on the side on some steps....The band sounded great. From the opening "Time Again" to the final notes of "Heat of The Moment", I was grinning ear to ear and singing along. Some sounds that were never my favorite from the first album like "Without You" and "One Step Closer" were surprisingly great live. My personal favorites "Cutting it Fine" and "Here Comes The Feeling" didn't disappoint. Great! The highlight of the show for me was the ELP cover of "Fanfare For The Common Man". It was FIERCE!!!!! The jam feel to the song and the guitar/keyboard battle between Geoff and Steve was fantastic. John sounded fantastic. The voice is still there & he plays a mean bass!! Carl seemed like the leader of the band as he came out from behind the drumkit to talk to the crowd at certain points. His playing was spectacular. What an amazing showman! The setlist was perfect for me. Some people have nit picked at it, but to make everyone happy, the boys would have to play for about 6 hours or so!! I can't wait to relive the experience when a DVD of the tour is made available..... A great experience. The guys seemed to really be enjoying themselves. As John said "Better Late than never!" (His "pahhhhking the cahhhhh" Boston accent quip was even funny.) I can only hope that this is just a small step in ASIA living on in the future....

I just came back from NYC where I saw both shows and if that wasn't exciting enough,I got to meet Dave McGrath and he presented me with a brand spanking new White NU hat,signed by my Good Friend,The Legendary Sole Survivor.
Wish I could have met Geno too.
In Atlantic City last week,JW did his Jersey accent for me.
It was How Ya Doin,How ya Doin.
