I saw Dragonforce live in concert 2 nights ago and I got to meet Herman Li in person before the gig. My mate who I went to the gig managed to get one of Sam's picks as well.

I see someone else supports Joe Satriani! I saw him in concert a few weeks ago and let's just say that he was bloody amazing! He and the guitar are just one - it's so impressive to watch, but it's hard to play guitar after watching him, since you just feel so inadequate.

You lucky bastard, I'd love to see Satch live. But I know what you mean; itíd be hard to be pleased with oneís own playing after seeing the god of guitar himself rip it up.

Not that I know of, I was on the left side of the mosh though, I.e. Hermanís side. But my mate ended up on the right side and he didnít mention anything about Sam snapping picks. He was throwing picks into the crowd though.

And Wormy they're great like that, insanely fast with a great amount of technicality involved as well. My favourite album is still Sonic Firestorm but you should check out the following off Inhuman Rampage:

Through the Fire and Flames
Revolution Deathsquad
Operation Ground and Pound
Body Breakdown
Trail of Broken Hearts

Most of those tracks feature some great keyboard and guitar effects, along with the speed elements.

I see you're going to see Queensryche, Sinister. Are they doing their "Evening with Queensryche" tour in Australia, too, in which they play all of Operation: Mindcrime? If so, that concert is absolutely amazing, and you'll love it. It's good on album, but absolutely amazing live.

Satch live was unbelievable. It was a weird concert - on one hand, the music sort of gets boring after a while and you just want it to be over, but on the other you never want him to stop playing. It's so mesmerizing, and the man is so calm while his hands and fingers just fly up and down the guitar.

Chris Caffery, of Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra, is an unbelievable. Not as good as Satch, but he benefits from being in a band with other instruments.

I've been hearing a lot about Dragonforce recently, for some odd reason. Have they been around a while and just on a massive tour now that everyone happens to be going to or are they pretty up-and-coming? I didn't think that they were a recent band, at any rate.

From what I understand theyíll be playing Mindcrime I & II, Iím actually yet to hear Op: Mindcrime II but if itís anything like Op: Mindcrime I, itíll kick arse. Iím sure itíll be a great night, Iím not too keen on the venue itís at though, but shit, not that many decent gigs come my way so Iíll take whatever I can get wherever I can get it.

And yeah Iíve heard that about Satch, heís an amazing player, and like you said a memorising one. But he just stands there, if he were to come down here heíd probably play at the entertainment centre anyway, so thatís not so bad as youíd be seated, itís not really the kind of show where youíd mosh to the music anyway. When I go to a show, I want to see a show (Pun not intended), but thatís just me. I like lights, explosions, smoke, fireworks, the whole shebang. Iím forking over often in excess of $50, I expect to be entertained.

I hadnít heard of Chris Caffery before, but Iíll have to add him to my list of artists to check out. And since weíre making recommendations, might I suggest some of the following:
Mattias ďIAĒ Eklundh (Check out Freak Guitar: The Road Less Travelled, or anything by Freak Kitchen)
Kiko Loureiro (From Angra, but check out his solo album No Gravity)
And anything by the: Buckethead, Gary Hoey, Michael Angelo Batio, Neal Schon and lastly Rusty Cooley. Shit-Eating Grin

As for DragonForce, in a sense theyíre still up and coming. I was listening to them back when still no body knew of them, but believe it or not theyíve actually been around for about 7 years now. However theyíre really only just starting to get widely known now. If you like DragonForce you should check out Power Quest that was formed by a few ex-DragonForce members. Itís no where near as good, but itís not 1/2 bad, though a little generic.

Though I haven't heard OpMCII, I understand that it isn't nearly as good as the original. However, the concert of the original is really awesome, and both together would be pretty cool. Hopefully Trans-Siberian Orchestra will go on a world tour at some point - if you like shiny concerts, they very likely have the most lights and fire out of any band ever. Seriously, if you seizure easily, avoid their concerts. There's nothing like a wall of hundreds of flashing lights to melt your mind. They're unbelievably awesome - nothing like a full string section and a huge metal band combined into symphonic greatness. Check out the album Beethoven's Last Night, or the Savatage album Dead Winter Dead for an idea of their sound.

Also, Chris Caffery has some solo albums. Check out chriscaffery.com, and they're on Napster, which means you can listen for free.

Yeah I was talking to a guy from another forum I go to on IRC this morning and he saw the OpMCI show twice last year, said it was awesome. As for the lights and all that, schweet, sounds like my kind of gig then. And hey, who doesn't like a seizure every now and then?

I hope they do bring an entire string section, that'd be awesome and damn impressive. It'd be even better if Dio toured with them as well, but from what I hear he doesn't plan to, oh well, Iím not sure whoíll play Dr. X, but so long as they get someone decent or maybe even use a big screen itíll be ok.

After looking up 'Beethoven's Last Night' I'll definitely be checking it out, and if that's your kind of thing, might I suggest you check out Into the Electric Castle or The Final Experiment by Ayreon.

And haha Napster, oh I remember back in the day, using ol' Napster on my dial-up connection, but I was under the impression Napster was a subscriber only service these days? Meh, there's always torrents and/or LimeWire.

TSO is the ones with the strings, sorry that my parenthetical deficiency messed you up there. Still, the OpM show is amazing, and there's plenty of lights and stuff. It's almost done in more of the style of a play than a concert, which is really cool, but as you know it makes a lot of sense.

Also, Napster is subscriber-only, but they launched "Free Napster" or whatever they call it, in which you can listen to a song five times for free. It makes finding new music and sampling quite easy, and it's a lot faster and more reliable than filesharing, though that would be the better solution for actual music pirating. It's a pretty nice thing to have around.

I remember ol' Napster, too. Ah, the fun of waiting two hours to download some music in 64kbps encoding, all because of the speed (or lack thereof) of dialup. Thank God for cable modems. Every time my internet's slow, I just think "Hey, eight years ago I was on a 56k modem... Think how long everything took!"

I use Soulseek for pirating music, though I really don't do it very much. I prefer buying used CDs.

No I figured thatís who you were talking about these guys right? And yeah I can imagine that it would be more of a play, I havenít heard any one call OpMC a rock opera before, but really, thatís what it is in a sense. It should be a great show, I canít wait. Hopefully there will be some other decent shows in the mean time, though the chances are slim. We get really ripped off in the way of good gigs down here.

That sampling thing with free-Napster sounds pretty good, I might have to check that out some time. Most of the time though it probably wonít make too much of a difference to me as I get a lot of recommendations from friends who I have similar taste in music with and thereís always last.fm.

Ah yes back in the day, Iíd usually set it up to download one track after the other and leave it running all night. Because it was in the days of dial up and we didnít have two phone lines I could only leave it running late at night and have to turn it off when I got up in the morning. Man it took ages to get anything back then. I bitch about my current connection a lot, though really I shouldnít. Most days Iím days Iím doing in excess of 500MB of data transfer, some days I top out over a gig or more. And for me itís not even 8 years ago, 8 months ago I was still on dial up... Hrm maybe not 8 months, maybe 9 or 10, but the point still stands.

I never really got into SoulSeek, Iíve always been able to find most of what I want on torrents and LimeWire. The only time SoulSeek has come in handy for me is when looking for really obscure and rare stuff like Heol Telwen or Mael Můrdha.
