TheRealPhilX Wow!!! Thank you so much for this. Kinda like 3 weeks flashing before my eyes.
TheRealPhilX Phil X WOW! I'm home & already reminiscing over the experience. The entire BJ troop was AMAZING & the fans are INCREDIBLE! & St. Louis KICKED ASS!!25 May
He really is one cool dude. I can't imagine anyone else walking the fine line with the die hards like he did... and also being a worthy subsitute for one of the best guitarists of all time. I am pretty sure he won the respect and praise of even the most loyal Sambora fan. I should know, I am one.
the 'diehards' are a joke, so out of touch with reality that any sensible-minded guitarist would have dismissed them and taken the gig.
Any guitarist with any sense would have... you are right. Who would turn down that opportunity? Anyone else would have probably done things his/her way and said F off if you don't like it.But Phil handled the situation very delicately and came out being everyone's hero.
Thanks for giving me your time.
