K.T.

As many of you may know, Katie Allen (also known as K.T. or Katie Loss) is one of my great friends that I have made since joining Arthur Bell back in June 2002. This past Friday was her last day and was very sad to see her go. She and I have had some crazy times together and we thought it only appropriate to hold a happy hour in her honor at the Chopper Tiki Bar.










We reminisced about all of the good times and bad times and then drank ourselves silly... It was a blast! And even though Katie isn't at Arthur Bell anymore, we will forever remain close... I love you K.T.!!!

Metal Masters - August 7, 2008 Bristow VA Nissan Pavilion


Ok - so here's the skinny - Testament, Motorhead, Sabbath (dio version aka Heaven and Hell), and Priest. My first time for Testament and Motorhead and second for HnH and Priest.


Testament opened. These guys are great live. It's just a shame the set list was so damned short.


Here it is:

Breaks between groups were only 15 minutes or so, so not too much down time.
Next up was Motorhead

Motorhead's Setlist:



Then came Heaven and Hell.


Set list:


Then finally, Judas Priest.

This was the one setlist that Michelle wasn't able to get, so I have to go off of my chicken scratch... here it is:

  1. ??? (new track - the other bogs name two songs, but I only remember one being played - Dawn Of Creation and Prophecy
  2. Metal Gods
  3. Eat Me Alive
  4. Between the Hammer and the Anvil
  5. Devil's Child
  6. Breakin the Law
  7. Night Crawler -
  8. Dissident Aggressor
  9. Angels (new track)
  10. the Hellion/Electric Eye
  11. Rock Hard Ride Free
  12. (Drum Solo)
  13. Painkiller
-------------------------
  1. Hell Bent for Leather
  2. ??? (the other blogs say The Green Manalishi, but I couldn't tell ya)
  3. You've Got Another Thing Comin'

Here's a link to another blog about the show:

Numero Uno

Well, since my name is attached, I assume it's about time I actually post a message.

Responses to Tom's previous blogs:
1. Smoking - Suck it up dude... you'll be better for it in the long run. And from where I'm standing, I've been seeing a lot of "cheating" going on.

2. Hypocrisy quiz - This is far too obvious to me. I am not fair competition to answer this.

3. Poison Show - Well, you didn't make out with Bret Michaels as I requested so I am very disappointed in that regard but at least I got a stinkin' tshirt out of it. Glad you enjoyed the show and some "guy time" with English Jason.

Latest and Greatest:
We went to Metal Masters last night. Although I really wanted to pack little Dio up and bring him home in my purse - I settled on obtaining 3 out of 4 set lists for the night... That's right fuckers - $36 in beers & a little flirting with the sound guy will get you the set list for:

1. Testament (not exactly my cup of tea),
2. Motorhead (Lemmy rules!!! plus I got to stand next to Mickey's wife and kids for the entire set) and
3. Heaven 'n Hell (Dio is the greatest "storytelling" lead singer of metal and most other genres of music I've had the opportunity to watch. I love love love Tony Iommi - that dark sound is incredible. Favorite tunes of the night - "Sign of the Southern Cross", "Heaven and Hell" and "Children of the Sea").

I was unable to acquire the set list for Judas Priest - however I did get a couple guitar picks from Priest & Motorhead instead. Priest was pretty cool as well but not as fond of them as HnH. I'm sure Tom's post will include all the details of this concert because he had an absolute blast! The 5 Bud Ice on the ride to Nissan and the 6 24 oz Bud Light cans inside the pavilion definitely put him in concert zone.... how you feeling this morning honey?! Ha!!

On the Horizon:
Lots of fun stuff going on... I'll have to start posting some pics from the summer activities. Stay tuned....
