Wow! Some people don't like their special souveniers I guess. I wouldn't part with mine! I wonder if there are any signed Chad Smith drumsticks? I saw a lot of people bringing some for him to sign.

I noticed none of you yahoos made it up to the Club Level when you were here (you shouldn't have been able to unless you were paying a boatload of money), so you missed the wall of honor for Glenn.

Prominently displayed in the main rotuda of that floor (across from the Sonny and Cher display case and the Club Lounge) is the "Voice of Rock Wall".

It's not completely finished but you get the idea. If anyone has anything especially cool to add to it let me know (I'll consult w/the impartial curator...me). If it meets the test I'll have it framed and mounted.

The photograph in the pic reads, "To the Hard Rock Hotel, may all who sleep here have sweet dreams", Glenn Hughes.

Saw Glenn this morning before his flight out and he said he had....

It was good seeing you folks again and glad many had a good time. Hope to see you all again (except for Frank who is neither invited back for overpriced drinks or lead belly pizza).

Rock & Roll, Lou

Hi Lou - first off, many thanks for taking care of everyone again this year and for making it another unforgettable couple of days in Orlando.

Now....don't be a stranger around here, join in the fun from time to time

I tried in vain to get upstairs for a look-see, but the lift wasn't having it, I guess it was malfunctioning right at that moment

Maybe see you in June, but if not, hope you'll join us here from time to time.

Cheers

Hey people...just wanted to let you know that a new member has joined the group. My name is Bill V. I've been into Glenn since the HUGHES THRALL and Seventh Star days.I was one of the lucky people at the Orlando show last week. Flew in from New Jersey.I bumped into Shirean after the show and she gave me a GHPG business card.So when i returned home i had to check out this website.This is a great website.Excellent photos from the show.(I have some that I may post someday).I've been at this site before but I never registered in the fan forum.(my mistake).Well now I am registered and just want to say hi.Catch you guys later...peace

Thanks for all the pictures and clips - this must have been a fantastic show, wish I could have been there.

As for the gig (?) in Spain - I will try to contact Reinhard the day after tomorrow, that's as far as I remember when he's going to be back here in Vienna.

Yet as we know him, he will be posting pics first thing after his return.

Where do I possibly start?

The details of the set list have been covered in detail and I will dispense with the hour-by-hour account of my every move. I would much rather sit here and just reflect back on not only this past show but the past year in general....There have been quite a few personal changes in my life in the past year i.e. losing my job, going back to school to retrain for a new career and now looking to start a whole new advenure that is this life!

Last year, I found this site after being directed here from glennhughes.com if memory serves me correctly. I heard about the Velvet Sessions show and quickly signed on..I had never seen Glenn in concert, let alone meet him and the whole atmosphere of the Hard Rock Hotel promised to be a fabulous time...I had no idea just how incredible it would be...

First off, I would like to give a thunderous Las Vegas style standing ovation for our host with the most...Lou Carrier!! As a general manger of a hotel, I know how busy he is..but he has gone out of his way to make all of us GHCP's feel at home and he took a lot of time out of his VERY busy schedule to make both of these Velvet Sessions a truly unforgettable experience!! And he is as big a fan as anyone here....he gets as much of a charge out of this as we do!! Lou...I will never forget your generosity and enthusiasm....You are the man!!

And let us not forget the couple behind the scenes that tirelessly keep this site the treasure trove of memorabilia and great people that it is....take a bow David and Shirean Harrison!! Thank you both for all that you do to make all of us feel part of something that can't be bought anywhere..I raise my pint high to both of you!!

I am flashing back on a March evening last year, sitting with several new friends in the Velvet Lounge, sharing stories..and then he walked in...The man who has brought us all together here...I remember the butterflies in my stomach..thinking "Oh my God..there he is..I've been listening to his music for 20 years..and he is here!" No rock star attitude here...He sat with us in the Lounge for the next 3 hours and made us feel at home and was so generous and funny....a raconteur supreme...He really appreciates what lengths we all go to in order to see him play...To Glenn Hughes I say this; Thank you for showing us that the Man is ten times taller than any Myth! I am so honored to have made your acquaintance!

Which brings me to the next part of the tale...I was at the grocery store earlier and had to pick up a few things..you can buy tomato sauce..and detergent...and eggs...but you can't buy CHEMISTRY!! The point of all this, you ask? Hold on..I'm getting there!

I have read several interviews with Glenn and he recounts how music industry people and rock mag writers have said something along the lines of "Hey Glenn..why don't you work with *insert name of big name guitarist here*??" And that it really pisses him off...and rightly so, when you have the tremendous talent and partner in musical alchemy that is JJ Marsh!! The night before this year's show, a group of us were in the Lounge talking with JJ. Somehow, the conversation got around to how this would be JJ's first proper gig in the US..JJ said something about people not knowing who he was, to which I replied; "After tomorrow night, they will know who you are!" JJ was genuinely touched by that...what a huge talent he is and such a kind, funny spirit he is! And on that stage the following night, he DELIVERED!!! That's what is all about folks..you can't bottle the chemistry that Glenn, JJ, Chad Smith and Ed Roth displayed on that stage. Those who were there know what I am talking about!

To Chad Smith and Ed Roth..the Boss Beat and the Wizard Of The Keys...for adding your huge talents to the mix...You guys RULE!!!

And let us not forget the friends I have made and new acquaintances I have had the pleasure to make in the past year...Kenny and Carolyn,the dynamic duo of Chip and Todd,The four Marks, LA Mark, NY Mark, Texas Mark, English Mark, Chris Mazzeo, Vinnis, "Famous Mike", Kat, Fedor, John H, Danny and Christy, and so many others that escape me at the moment..but who will reappear in my brain the next day when I am washing the dishes..To Glenn's partners in musical mayhem last year; Gary Ferguson, Jeff Kollman and Dave "Rick James' Mary Jane is the greatest drug song ever written" Schulz....to the staff of the Hard Rock Hotel who do such an incerdible job...

And a final tip of the cap to the Lady In Red and fitness guru Tony Little....all I could think was; "Dude..you look so much taller on TV!!"

Yours In The Funk
Bill "Capt. Midnite" Redford

As Peter Falk's Lt. Columbo was so fond of saying.."oh..one more thing!"

To Bill V.

Welcome to the list! If anyone had the opportunity to steal that bass, it was myself and our very own David Harrison...Last year, Lou invited us to his office the day after the show...The sight was mind blowing; wall to wall memorabilia and the newest acquisitions being an ESP 5-string bass guitar signed by Glenn and "THE SHOES"!! David and I got to closely inspect these items and numerous pics were taken....

Nicely put, Bill

There's a word that seems to sum up what we GH fans share - it's present on this board, and it's present when we're in each others' company at the various shows. It's a sense of community. When I made that comment the other night in Orlando to JJ and David, they agreed that it is quite a remarkable thing, JJ especially. What a humble, and supremely talented guy.

I don't know where I'm going with this.

Cheers...Todd

I too would like to thank Lou Carrier for everything he did for us GHCP at the hotel! I would also like to thank David and Shirean Harrison for all thier info and for a great website. Now on with the show.......

Ok this is my opinion of the show, I wont go into detail w set lists n such as thats already been posted ill just comment on the preformance. Lets start w JJ, to me he was very nervous often playing out of key and even out of tune on some songs. Ive heard JJ on many bootleg shows and ive heard what hes capable of. I realise that this was JJs american debut and maybe added to the nervousness i dont know but he didnt sound like the JJ i have heard before. I heard comments by Glenn after songs, like, "what key was that in?" so it was obvious to him. I saw a couple of frowns from Glenn as well, like when JJ dropped his guitar and walked off stage. JJ later admitted Glenn didnt like that. Chad on the otherhand didnt look nervous but played rather sloppy on a few tunes but did a good job. Ed Roth to me held the band together, when sometimes it sounded like it was falling apart. the second half of the show Glenn starting giving signs to Ed instead of JJ. and last but not least Glenn......... What can I say hes the MAN!!!!!!!!!! His voice was excellent and his bass playing was great. To me the show looked like it was like a vacation show where all the guys were just out to rest and relax and one night get on stage. Nothing wrong with that!!!!!! Cant wait for the next show!!!!! lol

And let me not forget the great people I met along the way!! Kenny&Carolyn,David&Shirean,Bill,Chip,Todd,Andy,Patrick,Famous Mike,Kat and anyone else that slipped my mind.

Hello David,

Thanks for "squashing" my pictures so that they fit neatly on the page...You mentioned that you will have software in place soon that will accomplish this automatically and that will be great! I had held back on posting pics because I knew there was a file size limit. I regret that now...thanks for all your help!

Besides...after looking at the stunning work of Reinhard Lackner and his pics from the May 1st show...I am tempted to make a paperweight out of my camera!!.....OK, I won't do anything rash!!

Yours In The Funk

Hey Bill,

Glenn said that those shoes were size 9 1/2 and that his feet actually grew to a size 11 in later years..The only way I could squeeze my size 12D feet in those platforms is with a shoehorn and a can of Crisco!!!

And I am actualy supposed to RUN in them too?? There isn't enough money in the world!!!

Sounds like I missed one wonderful event, in more ways than one. Spending the night in bushes? Jumping in the pool? JJ misbehaving? Vinnis' tongue hanging out?

Thanks for some great posts - Bill, Chip, Todd et al; really intereresting reading.

And welcome aboard, Bill V. You will never be disappointed.

... and you know what they say about big feet ...
