Mr. Big The Canyon Club 7/31/2011

This was easily one of the best shows I’ve seen this year.   Prior to the show, I made friends with Jeff and Rene- a wonderful couple from the Valley that share my love for metal.  The dinner seating at the venue was great.  I sat there reliving my teen years with Mr. Big songs.   Paul Gilbert has been one of my favorite guitarists for 25 years (dang- that’s a long time!) and I always look forward to hearing him play.   He is just as good as ever.   Billy Sheehan was also on fire.   The entire band was great, their set was awesome, the venue sounded really good and the crowd was into it.

After the show, we were on our way out and turned back to say hello to someone.   As we did, we noticed the couple from That Metal Show.   How random.  Then Jeff and Rene, the other couple I met earlier, stopped at the bar.   I told them these were the people I was talking about earlier.  It was kind of Twilight Zone-ish.      We all ended up spending quite a while talking about stuff until we learned there aren’t any bars open at midnight on a Sunday in Agoura.

Another odd coincidence was that the real Ron Jeremy was at this show and took a picture with Paula.
