the two passes i have posted are from that tour. it was called the "extreme steel" tour.
i went to the Dallas show, then went with the band down to
the Houston show. The Houston show of THAT tour is my most memorable concert ever (and i have been to many - i was a teen in the 80's lol) - I got to
stand on the side of the stage with Philip and his (now ex)wife Stephanie Opal and watch the entire Morbid Angel set. Then later after the show when
we were leaving the venue, we were heading out to Philips bus (me, Stephanie, Philip, Joe Fazzio from Superjoint and Hank III, my friend and the bands
photographer Scott Caliva) - as we came out of the venue and were being escorted by security to Philips bus, the parking lot was FULL of screaming
fans and they were all throwin us the metal horns and stuff, it was THE coolest experience ever, at that moment, i KNEW how a rockstar felt. i can see
how it could be addicting. lol. I spent most of that show in the soundbooth doing crown shots with the sound guys while Scott was in front of the
stage taking pics - but during the encore, we got to go up on the stage and sing This Love with all the band and crew and stuff (that used to be their
thing, to let everyone come on stage for that song during the encore) - Good time, good times.
I have so many stories about Darrell. I have tons more pics and quite a bit of video (most of it is still on the small tapes from my old camcorder).
He was a phenomenal guitar player, but most importantly he was a cool dude. I can honestly say he was one of the most down to earth and FUNNIEST
people i have ever had the pleasure of knowing. his is sorely missed.
thanks for all your posts, guys (and girls!)
