Re: On this day in MAY Bonahistory (& the starting of the BH Threads)

Thank you for the dates.

Into the log book they will go. (The May 7th won't show up for about a year. smile) Adding Forum members names as "first show" may be a cool add onto the list.

Re: On this day in MAY Bonahistory (& the starting of the BH Threads)

Last year today was the first time I saw Joe live!!! Didn't get to meet him, but Carmine, Rick and Tal came out to say hi to the fans and I met them all! Great night!

Re: On this day in MAY Bonahistory (& the starting of the BH Threads)

I'll admit...neat to see the compilation growing, and see people spark old memories.

But won't this eventually get out of hand, maintaining this sort of list in a single post?  Are there forum size limitations for characters in a single post? 

And so far, this only covers about 12 calendar dates, right?  (With nearly every day filled in with something.)  And lots of suggestions that have to be held onto, until that date rolls around.  Not that every day has significant "Bonahistory" that any or all of us might be aware of.

Perhaps this just becomes a log of "Memorable Moments in 'Bonahistory'" -- as opposed to the "On this day in..." daily entry sort of thing?

Tossing out ideas, and concerns, but carry on.

Play like you've worked at it, and don't worry about sounding like your influences.  You can't cheat on them, or your practice, anyway.  If you've worked hard at your skill, your audience will know it.

Re: On this day in MAY Bonahistory (& the starting of the BH Threads)

Maybe something like Phil's gig guide where the first post can always be updated. Or make room in advance for the first 12 posts to be updated - one for each month.

Re: On this day in MAY Bonahistory (& the starting of the BH Threads)

Change the title to "On this Day In May Bonahistory", and have a separate topic for every month. hmm

Royal Albert Hall: 5/4/09 - lots of the faithful at that show, many journeyed from far & wide.
I also saw Joe at the Star Plaza Theater in Merrillville Indiana on the one year anniversary of RAH: 5/4/10.

Re: On this day in MAY Bonahistory (& the starting of the BH Threads)

What a fantastic trip down memory lane reliving those heady days. I had just discovered Joe and was lurking on the site, vicariously enjoying the posts from the fans then and wishing I had been just a little earlier finding him. I would have been there too.
Who knew where that would take us all at that time. Some names have faded from the poster list, some remain, but the music has gone on. Rock On Joe,
Great work Roadcase Boy, acknowledged by the man himself. cool
