    FYI, at a Jeff Waters guitar clinic, you don't learn anything about playing guitar. You do, however, learn a LOT about how fucking funny he can be when not shredding and about how badly the music industry screwed Annihilator out of the exposure and success he feels they deserved :P

    Very entertaining but not much focus on guitar technique unless you really make a point of emphatically stating a guitar related question that can be answered between lines of amateur Canadian comedy :lol:

    Yeah, that was pretty silly. Also, I consider them about as Canadian as Manowar are American.


    All I learned from the Jeff Waters guitar clinic in 2012 was how awesome I'll never be at the guitar. :lol:

    Blind Guardian -- The last time they came to Houston...10+ years ago...they canceled the show when they got to the venue and realized how crappy it was and that the "promoter" did not promote the show. This will be my first time seeing them.
    Ensiferum -- They have never made it down the Houston that I know of...PaganFest misses us here in Texas.
    Equilibrium -- Discovered this band thanks to this cruise.
    Primal Fear -- I kick myself for never giving these guys a listen but now that I have I love the melodic/Priest sound!
    Apocalyptica -- Nothing screams metal like cellos!
    2015 - Survivor...Finally! (8320)
    2016 - Survivor (2292)
    2017 - Survivor (9618)
    2018 - Survivor (9678)
    2019 - Survivor (9272)
    2020 - Very unlikely...dates suck and tired of waiting!

    Definitely a fine list!! You should be pleased :) I've got to see Blind Guardian 5 times now (twice on the first 70k, and three times in Australia), Ensiferum 6 times (four times on 70k, twice in Oz), and Primal Fear and Apocalytica once each (haven't seen Equilibrium).

    All are EXCELLENT live.

    At the moment the bands on the lineup I'd be most interested in would be Therion (amazing in 2012 - would be keen to see what the 'new' lineup is like) and Arch Enemy (seen many times but not with Alyssa).

    But nothing I would really deem myself "excited" for. Definitely need a band or 17 from my wishlist!

    Did I already post that I'm most excited for Blind Guardian? Because I'm definitely most excited for Blind Guardian.

    That is totally going to happen.

    I might even try and improve my Quenya (I can only say a few phrases) for the M&G.
