Dave was among a bunch of drummers signing at the Ludwig booth and I got an autographed picture. More than that, I got some news. He said work has begun on a new Slayer album, Jeff is recovering nicely, and yes, Jeff's bout with the flesh-eating bacteria has inspired a song or two. I'd be disappointed if he didn't.

Tomorrow I'm hoping to meet Jeff Loomis and Chris Broderick.

Nice! I haven't met Lombardo... yet. The one time I met Slayer was during an in-store at Tower Records in El Toro for the release of Divine Intervention, so naturally I met Bostaph instead. I waited in line for around 6 hours before we got in. My 8th grade brain was beyond stoked.

I remember going to NAMM ages ago (like, mid-90s) and sitting in on a guitar clinic with Marty Freidman. Dude shredded my face off! Then signed an 8x10 for me.

I went Thursday, didn't see too many players but got a pic with Abigail Ybarra. Last night was the Guitar Geek Festival, and I was really surprised by Paul Gilbert. He was really good...(not too many shredders go to the GGF)...going again tonight...

Here is some of my pics from NAMM...(All Gretsch here)

Chrisedge, did you get any pics or video of the Paul Gilbert show? I was considering checking that out last night, but I hear he wasn't scheduled to go on until around midnight and I already saw Eric Johnson at the Anaheim House of Blues earlier in the week. I chose sleep over Paul, but I've seen him live a few times over the years and he never disappoints. Fantastic guitarist and songwriter in any genre.

I taped (audio and video) the whole thing. Deke has given me the ok for the past 4 years to do my thing. I gave him all of last years footage to use in his DVD's. I will be posting stuff to YouTube starting tomorrow...

I really hope a pic of Jeff's arm is the cover for the new album.


Also can't wait for his Philm side project to release

I would like to go to this show but still have never made it out to one.

I met Dave years ago backstage after a show when he was with the Fantomas. Dave was pretty reserved but still nice enough. However the one I talked to for a while that night was Buzz Osborne from The Melvins. He was very cool.

Those Gretsch pictures are great.

I put a Paul Gibert video in the Deke Dickerson/NAMM thread...I had to use a different program to encode, so I only got two videos up the whole weekend. More to come though...

He said work has begun on a new Slayer album, Jeff is recovering nicely, and yes, Jeff's bout with the flesh-eating bacteria has inspired a song or two. I'd be disappointed if he didn't.By that time, Hanneman was on his way to hospital, a further hour away. In the car, he pulled up his sleeve, "I could see the flesh corrupting," he recalls. "The arm was real hot. I got to the emergency room, and thank god the nurse knew straight away what it was. By chance, although its pretty rare, she had seen a case a little while before. At that point, I was an hour away from death.""Unbeliveably, the doctor was a Slayer fan," says Hanneman, "first thing he said to me was: 'First I am going to save your life. Then I am going to save your arm. Then I am going to save your career'.":eek: Wow, I had no idea how bad it really was..."Its the kind of thing I might have written a song about," he acknowledges. "Everything that could go wrong this year did, but you know, it turned out okay. Satan had my back".http://www.slayerized.com/whatsnew/2011/12/jeff-hanneman-i-was-an-hour-away-from-death/

I love how casually Hanneman gives props to the man downstairs. :lol:

SLAYER RULES!
