Thank You Starbreaker.
Nice shot at the [.], whatever the hell that is??
I`ve thought the same thing about Blood Red Skies and the Terminator movies, but then Metal Gods describes those movies to a T !
My heyday in the clubs was from 87 thru 93, did do the old Broco Bowl though, that was awesome. But played a lot in Austin and Houston as well as a few places throughout Oklahoma and Louisiana. Dallas City Limits was a big place we did frequently in Big D.
I can`t say from my perspective that the band looked bored, but they could`ve been better. Rob and Glenn really didn`t have much interaction. Ritchie was into it, smiling most of the night!
Everyone has an off night, but it was still a great show.
I guess short of hovering over Scott and changing the mics out, may not have been much they could do.
Guitardude, olive branch accepted. If Judas Priest does come back to the Dallas area, I will be there as well. I've played some big shows, I was in a band that opened a Latin Festival at Starplex once, played Arcadia a few times and other festivals at outdoor Anette Straus stage adjacent to the Meyerson. Probably like you I've played at most places Dallas musicians have played: Curtain Club, Club DaDa, Firewater etc...
So yes, I understand we're at the mercy of the soundcrew at times. Couldnt they fix it? Could both boom mics above the drums have not been working? The sound of the drums can make a band sound ultra professional or cheap. It was a pleasure to watch 3 great drummers right in a row. Not a BLS fan but their drummer was really good. Zakk has a 3 note range, but an amazing lead guitar player.
Sound aside, it was the energy from the band that bothered me. Rob wasnt even on stage during the intro to Blood Red Skies which is one of my favorite songs ever. I always thought that song should have been used in the Terminator movies.
