Yep... another benefit of my day job. I was in the arena during both the instrument sound check and full band check. I sat right next to the guitar/bass techs during the whole thing. Here is the huge shocker... both Mike and Stone's stage volume was the LOWEST of the entire band. The loudest were Boom's keys and Jeff's bass. I couldn't believe how low both guitars were. The individual techs all played two songs together too when they finished... the sound guy came over the monitors and said "roadie jam" and they all played. It was pretty funny. I heard Ed, Boom, Jeff and Matt work out a completely different version of Future Days without Stone and Mike. They worked on it as if it was a rehearsal. I really dug the version too. So... lesson of the day? Not all rock star arena guitarists crank the volume on their killer vintage and/or boutique gear!! During the show, both guitarists sounded huge. They sounded like they were cranking 100 watt Marshalls... Talk about letting the soundman do his job. Oh yeah... PJ only has one guy on the board and that's it.
