If you haven't seen Electric Mary, check them out. They alone are well worth 10 bucks, not to mention Toehider and that tall guy with the glasses.

The night was awesome. first time I had been to a gig in ages.

Toehider were very good, the singer likes Queen and it's obvious.

Electric Mary were just awesome, the man himself signed the backplates of my Cu22 and Tremonti, "Birdys" for obvious reasons :P and "Fat Bob" for less obvious reasons.

Thanks to Shawn for posting this.

I couldn't make it to the show but I interviewed Paul for about an hour yesterday for my guitar blog and a magazine. He let me play his guitar too - what an honour! Interestingly, I recently had a chat with Jimi Hocking who owned the very first PRS guitar in Australia, which Paul signed last time he was in Oz. Jimi doesn't have that guitar any more - I wonder if someone here does?

Looks like Paul has a new personal guitar?

Jimi is a great guy and equally great player

Yep! Signature Limited with no finish, just stained. Really beautiful.
