I just walked in the door after having an awesome evening over in Portland.
I don't know who it was or how they managed it but someone talked Pat Travers into playing a concert in this little fucking bar.
There wasn't even close to two hundred people there, more like a hundred and fifty, Max.
Packed in like sardines and hotter than Holy Hell, I could have poked him with the end of a fishing pole, I was that close.
I can't hear a damn thing out of my right ear because I was standing directly in front of an amplifier. Music that you can feel, the best kind in my opinion.
Great show, just great. Some new and some old stuff, the man still has it goin' on.
The best part?
After the show he had a meet and greet.
I got an autographed CD and DVD, an autographed picture, got to shake his hand and the wife got a picture of my ugly ass standing next to him with a big ol' shit eating grin on my face. (I gotta get some new glasses, these things are hideous!)
I will have to wait until her sister comes over with some gizmo to transfer the pictures onto her computer so she can send them to me, neither one of us has a smart phone yet.
I have been waiting 30 years to see him in concert again, it was worth the wait.
