Ed Fore One Model 757



Been wanting one of these Iron Maiden ED Force One Model planes from the Somewhere Back In Time Tour 2008 – 2009 forever. They are hard to locate and they are expensive. I struck a deal with a fellow Iron Maiden fan from the UK who was advertising a mint condition unit. I paid $5 more than I wanted to, but if the unit arrives as described, it will be worth it. A few conversations later and a PayPal transaction. I am the proud owner of one. It’s left the UK heading to New York right now. I am excited. More when It arrives.

Crack the Sky | Tally Ho Theater | 02/12/2016


Crack the Sky Tally Ho

Crack the Sky
Tour - Beauty of Nothing
Venue - Tally Ho | 02/12/2016
Attendance - Myself | Rob Lang

What a great night. Started the night with a shot of Fireball, then some Deep Eddy Ruby Red. That stuff is delicious. Time to hit the road! Road trip to Leesburg for dinner and another great Crack the Sky show at The Tally Ho Theater. We listened to a new to us guitarist on the way, Charlie Parra, from Peru. Dining was at the Leesburg Public House, one of Leesburgs finest places to eat. We sat at the bar for faster service on a crowded night, as we were running late. After Dinner off to the show. As usual the band performed in their unique style. Not a large crowd. We stood up front right with the band. Of course the band recognized us. A great night as usual with my good friend, Rob Lang. After the show a picture with Bobby as he came to greet us.

Reagan Years | Tally Ho | 02/06/2016



The Reagan Years
Tour - 80's Cover
Venue - Tally Ho | 02/06/2016
Attendance - Myself | Lisa Brown

 
If you grew up when I did, the 80's, you will remember so much great music and a great time to growing up. This is what the Reagan Years is supposed to recapture.
Not as good a show as I was anticipating. They actually murdered some of the best covers from the 80’s. Lets put it this way, on the way home I so wanted to shuffle all the songs they played just to hear how they were supposed to be done. I don’t know if they were having an “off Night” or what. The show was sold out and the crowd seemed pumped. I wouldn’t drive this distance again to see them. I would give them one more chance closer to home however. My wife was turned off by the lead singer’s flaunting of chest, muscles and thrusting. I don’t know if that's his show for the show, but whatever. Supposedly this band has played together for over 20 years. I don’t know if its just me or I am super finicky, but they didn't sound like they played that long together, I expected a bit more.
