    Dad gum the rotten luck! I lived in Venezuela eight years, all the time longing for a chance to meet Billy Sheehan, my bass hero, and he never came to Caracas. I wanted him to sign my Yamaha Attitude bass. So now that I no longer live in Venezuela, well, Sheehan shows up there. Bad, bad timing.

    I did get to see Jeff Berlin do a fascinting bass clinic at the Teatro Maria Carena (Or whatever the name was. I forget.)
     
  6. Billy Sheehan has a new signature bass?

    I just got home from the Mr. Big gig, and he was still using his old (?) signature bass. Either way, it was one helluva kick-ass show! I must have yelled, "Billy! Throw me a bass!" At least 20 times during the 2 hour show, plus the 2 encores. :D:p

    Let me tell you that I still can´t beleive it, here (in Caracas) we never have the chance to see international artists like Billy.... only the POP crap.
    Thanks god Roger Waters will be playing in the Caracas POP Festival next march 17th, it is not Pink Floyd, but its pretty close.....:cool:

    Caracas Bass, I was fortunate to see both Iron Maiden , Pantera and Sepultura in Caracas. Gee, that was years ago! My last few years there, no big acts came because nobody could afford to pay them. Many exciting acts planned to come, even KISS, but at the last minute they would always cancel.
