As I had thought .. the Deep purple concert ROOOOCCCKKKEEEEDDD Big time.
I had never been to a live performance before this .. except the college band types .. and this one exceeded all my expectations. When you go to such concerts .. you realize why Deep Purple is called the BAAP of ROCK .. !!
I met a college friend at about two and was at the concert entrance gate at 3 when the gate was supposed to open at 5:30 🙂 .. and I am telling you .. that two and half hours of wait was worth watching Deep Purple perform live in front of you .. I was somewhere around third row all through the concert .. and being surrounded by hot chicks and head banging yourself .. you got to be there to experience what it actually felt like. At the end of the two hours of deep purple, I realized that my feet are not in a position to take my weight any more 🙂
And for the non-believers in my dancing art .. I actually felt like dancing .. ( ok . notice the word “felt like” .. I didn’t actually DO it 🙂 ) .. It was totally unbelievably amzing.
anyway .. Here are the pics .. Thanks to Ashley’s camera phone for that ( no cameras allowed otherwise ). Some pics are blurred because it is difficult to take pictures when you are head banging 😀
I came within three inches to getting hold of Steve Morse’s guitar pics that he threw into the crowd .. But some hairy bastard stomped on my feet .. and I couldn’t get it .. Must have been hell of a way to start learning guitar had I got it .. 😀
