Drew Lynch was hilarios.Saw Prism & Honeymoon Suite last night. Good show. I like the music of Prism better but since they lost their lead singer in a bicycle crash in 1984, they lost a unique vocal style. The lead guitarist tried to make up for it and on the songs he did normal lead on, he was good. But the other songs were not as good. Plus he tried to be too goofy as a lead singer to compensate and it didn't work as well. On the plus side they introduced and thanked their sound guy. As a sound guy, I thought that was cool. Honeymoon Suite was better in terms of sound. But they seemed stuck in the 80s (same hair cuts). I guess that is by design. Concert did not move me as much as Prism.
On our way into the casino we had to upgrade our loyalty cards as they had upgraded. As we were chatting about perks they offered us a free concert to "Celtic Woman" on 04/03. We took it. My wife liked them. I had never heard of them until last week. Their song "You Raise Me Up" was one of my mom's favourites and it was done by a soloist at her funeral. I found the offer and timing to be a bit eerie and will likely baul my head off when she does that song.

I was looking at the next model up from that company.Last night he was pounding beers so he was tipsy and really had the jams going.
He has mentioned a few times that it's the best guitar he's ever had.
