Review by Lucy Piller.
Our dear Paul was in great form, as usual. Backing Paul on this gig was the
Howard Leese Band from the West Coast. This time, Howard Leese was playing lead guitar.
Must be honest, though, I did prefer the great Randy Hansen. Most of the songs they played
were Bad Co material.
As you see by the pictures, Paul still has his goatie beard. And he is in such good
shape -- WOW. What does he do to keep himself so fit?? This is the only picture of Paul on
stage because I was too far back.
Met Paul and his manager back stage with some other fans. Great meeting a cyber friend
by chance -- Christian from Tennessee. He and his family were just so overwhelmed by
meeting Paul. Should be getting a review from him shortly. Christian, in fact, is playing
some of Paul's material in his own band.
Then, there was the sweet Sammy Jay. "So, who's Sammy Jay?" you ask. Before
the show, I saw a young girl dancing on the chairs with such style. I had to go up to her
and tell her parents what a MOVER she was. So happens, they were from London, England. We
talked about Sammy and they mentioned she was over here to start her new music career in
The mother of Sammy then asked me "Do you know PR?" I said, "Well, yes.
But why are you asking?" She said, "Sammy was performing yesterday and Paul and
his girl friend walked past where Sammy was singing. They stopped and wanted to check
where this great voice was coming from. They both thought she was SO good they invited her
to the show tonight."
Can you imagine me discovering the same person as Paul? What a blast!!!!! Good Luck
Sammy with your life in Nashville.
Rob stands next to Paul for the first time in his life!
