So I got my mom to take my friends and I to Sam Ash today to browse for a friend's birthday. When we got there, after a few minutes, we found out that a demo was being held (about 5 minutes from then) for Jimmy Degrasso (former Megadeth, Suicidal Tendencies, David Lee Roth, etc. drummer). The dude was really cool and really good, and it was a pleasant surprise (since we had no idea this was gonna be happening until it did).

Anyone else had this sort of thing happen to them before?

my local shop was having a demo one time,
my band was invited to play.
but we forgot, so i went there to pick up
new strings and i realized i was supposed
to be playing right then.
it sucked

also, i was there when Def Leppard bought
around 8 4x12 cabs, i only saw the roadies,
but it was still cool

I went to Guitar Center once and Jesus was there shredding on a BC Rich Warlock.
It was pretty cool.

did he turn it into a guitar that's actually worth playing?

Not really.

The best thing was Mike Portnoy buying some stuff from a Sheetz around my town, but y'know...

Apparently Twisted Sister bought a whole dick-load of cabs recently from my local guitar store.
Dunno if it's 100% true though.

Tom Petty walked into a guitar center near me once...I could barely see him though because a huge crowd of rednecks were crowded around him going
