JUNE 5, 2012, CHICKENFOOT BLEW THE ROOF OFF THE QUEEN E ! By Paul Fitzgerald
What a night, What a show. Chickenfoot at Vancouver’s Queen E Theatre. Sammy Hagar is from the famous Ronnie ‘Montrose’ band from back in 1973. Many Great Hits, a lot written by Sammy Himself. Unfortunately Ronnie Montrose passed away in March 2012. This is one of those crazy years where great rock stars are leaving us ! I often bring records to shows and 75% of the time I get them autographed. 64year old Sammy did me the honour ! Thanks Sammy, You made my Year !
Check out the finale video. Sammy and the boys sang Rock Candy from Those MONTROSE days. Sammy Hagar dedicated it to the late Ronnie Montrose. Sammy saw me, waved me to the stage and I brought my Montrose album to Sammy and he signed it on stage. The highlight of my year! This video off YouTube caught the event. You can’t see me but the album is at my place with about 30 other autographed albums ! When he held it up the crowd ROARED !
Kenny Aronoff on Drums, Joe Satriani on Guitar and Michael Anthony on Bass, with the great front-man Sammy Hagar wild-man and lead vocals. Chickenfoot just blew me and everyone away at The Queen Elizabeth Theatre. My friend took me to the show and I thank my friend again for helping make my life a wonderful thing! Every day is an adventure !
Check out the video ! Wow what a great night !
