    OMG IT WAS AWESOME!!!! Stanley Clarke, Al DiMeola, and Jon-Luc Ponty!!!!

    Stanley was on DB all night, till the end where he busted out School Days on an Acousic bass... It was at Royce Hall at UCLA. Increadible show.

    Sorry, No pics I didnt bring a Camera :*(

    But I met all of them! I gotta Shake There hands and Talk about Mahavishnu Orchestra and Return to Forever. And Al DiMeola told me he was 19 when he, Stanley, Chick Corea, and Lenny White Recorded "The Romantic Warrior"!!!

    My Friend had Stanley Sign his had, and One guy took his bass in, it was an Alembic, Just to see what he would say, I asked him to play something when we were really close to Stanley Clarke and he got all red :)

    Good Times had by all that night.

    Wow. I guess I should have called it "I saw Stanley Clarke Last Night!!!"
     
  4. Awww, crap!
    I wanted to go to that!

    But...what kind of Trojan would I be if I stepped foot on Bruin soil? :crying:

    But seriously, I couldn't make it, and it really urinates me off. Then again, I guess I can sort of take solace in the fact that I saw his first live performance in I-don't-know-how-many years last year at the Key Club. :D
