1) Met Zakk in front of the Pizza Place off of union sqaure before the show. He was cool! The conversation went something like this...
Me> Zakk??? ZAKK?!?!!?
Zakk> ...*drinking beer*...
*Blonde chick taps Zakk on shoulder*
Zakk> Hey, what's up boss?!
Me> It's a pleasure to meet you!
Zakk> I know.
Me> Me and my pal Chris are surragate guitar students of yours
Zakk> You're what?
Me> We're like your guitar students, we read all of your guitar world articles. We practice pentatonic stuff... melodies.
Zakk> Awesome, keep kicking ass! Listen, I'm taking a short walk. I'll see you at the show boss!
Me> I'll be right up front!
He was actually real gracious and friendly. It's not everyday you meet the guy who wrote your favorite song or the guy who wrote "No More Tears" and "Mama, I'm Coming Home."
I'll post more on this later.
