Yes, yes, let me also add how great it was to join with the Quebec
Metal Horde this weekend at the AnViL concert in Quebec City! The
Academy was well represented on this night. I had a blast meeting you
all, chatting about favorite bands and hoisting some ales in honour
of AnViL. I got into town on Saturday and found out that the club was
only a few blocks away from my hotel-excellent! Sunday was warm(?)
and sunny and everybody was out in the streets; a festival, for sure!
As I strolled along, I passed the club and saw Lips and G5 outside
waiting for the others to arrive with the gear. Ivan was driving and
had Robb as navigator, so they zipped into a "Police Only" parking
spot! Now we all hurried to unload the gear before the constables
arrived. I was doing ok, the drums were not heavy but then I got
ahold of one of Lips' guitar amps...BIG mistake! The heaviest amp I
have ever moved~~I almost had a stroke climbing the long flight of
stairs to the bar.
We all witnessed another superb show from the guys, of course.
They make the hardest stuff look so easy. Excuse me while I pitch my
drumsticks across the room. After seeing Mr. Reiner in action again,
I surrender! This was an enthusiastic bunch there to see them, long-
time fans mixing with the new arrivals, seeing the band in top form
on this night! All gathered around to get stuff signed and a lot of
pics were taken. A big family? Sure! A return to QC in the future? A
Quebec MetalFest this Summer? Let's all keep our fingers crossed for
that to happen.
Guillaume(not a Tesla fan? Come on! ;D), Tange(you rocked-nice
posters!), Guy(photographer par excellence!) and Tom(speaking English
for me-thanks!) very nice to meet you all and let's do it again soon!
Now I'm off to get my photos developed, no digital cam for me yet.
I will post them tomorrow!
