Last but by no means least!!

Last on (for the graveyard slot) was Jeff Scott Soto. I had fears that everyone might bugger off home as a fair few would have work in a few hours time. Thankfully a fair few stayed behind (and bared the cold) and they were treated to one of the best gigs of the day.


JSS is a stalwart of rock in general and has appeared on a shedload of albums over the last 20-odd years for the likes of Malmsteen, WET, Talisman, Soul Sirkus, etc and is known for stints in Journey, Axel Rudi Pell and the famed TSO. Jeff was here to promote his latest album Damage Control and throw in some nice surprises! Unfortunately Jeff did a Gary Hughes and nearly chinned himself good and proper and it took him close on 30s to regain composure. Falls onto your ass don't stop professionals as long in the tooth as JSS. The great man treated us to solo numbers, the title track Damage Control and Take You Down being stand outs. W.E.T. was represented with One Love, and he even had chance to fit in a great Talisman medley, and a couple of Steel Dragon tracks, the highlight being the addition of Nathan James (a fellow TSO performer and by the looks of it a very good friend) joining him on Stand Up. Check out the vocals on YouTube and you'll see what I mean.

I must admit that I didn't want to stay until 2am, but realized after 2 songs that it was going to be worth sticking around for. I'm bloody glad I did!
