24th Annual Mushroom Mardi Gras Festival - Morgan Hill, CA - Saturday, May 24th, 2003

Russ Birtola, Mike Rose (Wishbox) and GLENN

WOW - what can you say....GLENN blew everyone away with the VOICE!!

From the moment he stepped on stage and belted out Burn and Mistreated he had the crowd under his spell....then to top things off, a thunderous rendition of my personal favorite, Stormbringer. To close his short set....he wowed everyone with yet another awe inspiring version of Whiter Shade Of Pale.

Later he came on to lead the final band encore in the ever popular Smoke On The Water - the crowd were soaking up every vocal minute that GLENN was able to provide.

In attendance were lots of Hughes/Thrall, Trapeze and Purple era fans....most of which hadn't seen him live since the 80's and even earlier! We even ran into rick, a fellow Fan Forum member, plus said "Hi" to quite a few others who we hadn't met before.

With a longer setlist promised for our next visit with Big Daddy in Brookdale, CA - it made for a great day and upon our return home, Songs In The Key Of Rock, was sitting in our mail box You can't ask for much more, plus it's a 3-day weekend, so you know what I'll be listening too
