I've been fortunate to meet some incredible musicians over the past couple of years, many of them my heroes, guys like Jake E. Lee, Brad Gillis, Dug Pinnick, Michael Sweet, Scott Dalhover, Stevie Blaze, to name drop a few. All of them were very friendly and down to earth. But this weekend my singer and I were asked to open an acoustic show for Ron Keel, the singer of Yngwie's first band Steeler and his own platinum 80's band Keel, and Mike Tramp from White Lion. Ron was just incredibly cool and down to earth. He visited my drummer who's been in the hospital for the past two months waiting on a heart transplant, and spent time meeting everyone at the show, taking pictures, and making friends with as many people as possible. It's really nice to meet artists who get it.
