Today was one of those days that will most likely live on in legend forever. Some passages in life are just made to be memories that last. Check it out.
We started out our day with a serious awesome demo at Brilliant Sky here in Austin. They had it going on in the best ways possible. The Brilliant Sky stores are all new but, they have some of the best vibes anywhere. The event was fire from the moment we rolled up until the time we had to leave. They had a great crowd and some great energy running through the place. What I loved more than anything was seeing people that we taught to play teach others. Some of the people who came out to other demos this week were out there and it’s awesome to see it create ripples. I know for sure that those ripple will be waves in the scene soon enough.
Around dark, we had to wrap up the demo and that is a drag. However, we were treated to an awesome meeting. I had met the artist, Bob Wade, last year when on the 80 Years 1 World tour. He is an amazing artist across so many mediums and as I mentioned then, it turns out he was also a Duncan Junior Instructor in his younger days. Well, he’s still got it and he invited us into his home for a cool visit, an interview and a chance to see some of his art collection and work. It was nothing short of amazing. He is such a cool guy and he really brought the vibe of the day up to levels unimagined. He just knew what to say and the man knows hip better than anyone I have ever met. He is such a great cat and a great player. His memories are the kind that I am so glad to have heard stories of and I can only hope that I stay sharp enough to share those stories with younger generations when the time comes. He’s the best. I hope he doesn’t mind me calling him a friend for life.
