Postby Joe Vana » Sun Sep 08, 2013 11:38 pm

Hey gang....

Well I am 12 weeks since my surgery and I am at 85%....way ahead of schedule and are adjusting the set to fit the tunes I want to Do....it is fun working on the Jamison/Survivor material....did some of these in my years with JP but we are bringing a harder edge to them...excited to roll out the Mecca II tunes and some new twists and turns....

3 weeks to go!!!!

See ya there!!!

Joe probably has a recording of the set, right? :lol:

I really hope someone has some videos to share. I'm so sad I couldn't go...

I have a few vids and Andrew had the whole event recorded....don't know what will become of the footage...but I will say MANY said they have NEVER heard Burning Heart or Too Hot to Sleep with Jamo ever better...so I guess our heavier treatment of these songs did the trick....plus we melodically stayed out of his way on verses and didn't solo over him singing...giving him the opportunity to carry the song....worked well!!!!

Great choices Joe!! "Mecca" is one of my favourite songs :) And "Carmen" with Jamo... Damned I missed something big.

Is there any chance we will ever see or hear a live-recording of you?

No....didn't think about it for a second....even though I was happy to be able to use a Peterik/Sullivan penned tune I never was really over the moon about it...I think that's why it never ended up on anything...but some of the other parties involved in Mecca One twisted my arm per se and it was included...the Jamo version is Brilliant!!!!

Can't wait for Mecca III. Did I get that right, you're going to do it together with Jimi Jamison??

Since I'd really love that, I'll quote myself to get some attention :)
