I gotta tell. I'm a fan for almost 20 years and when they announced they were coming to Brasil, me and 2 more friends went to the gig (then, we met 4 more friends, at the venue). I talked to Scott while he was smoking a cig and hanging around the place and he was really cool with me (even gave me a hug); during the gig, I asked Garry if he had played football and he told me: 'What?!', then I asked the question again and he laughed and said to me "I didn't have time!"
Ahahahahahahahahahah... Then I asked a guitar plectrum and he gave, then I asked one for one of my friends and he checked his back pocket, made a hand sign for us to wait and, kindly, he went to his amp and picked one from there. Lee listened to me singing throughout the whole set and he pointed me many, many times and he did hit his chest with closed hand saying in gesture that it was from the heart his gratitude, later the gave me a closed hand to touch his knucles and gave the mic for me to sing Utopian Blaster phrase on one of the choruses and before going off stage, pointed me with index finger and thanked me for being a fan. Brian came to the front to thanx the crowd and threw some sticks and I shouted him: "Brian, you're one of my fave drummers, man!". He thanked me and made a hand sing for me to wait and went to his drumkit riser and brought, in hands, a drumstick for me, which is very well kept with Garry's plectrum at my mom's.
Afterwards, I was waiting for the band to sign stuff and have a chat but, there were loads of people waiting and we had to go home. That gig had a superb sound, the band was fired up to the max and the reception they gave us*Jeffmetal
just made me respect, admire and love this band and these guys even more.
I hope they return in a few years with new stuff 'cos they still have loads of fantastic songs and music in them! I hope Leo return to the band if they comeback (no disrespect to Scott who is a great guy and great player but, Leo has more to do with Cathedral).
VIVA CATHEDRAL!!! \m/
