Adrian Belew Power Trio

Late post of a montage from last night. This is the the astounding Adrian Belew Power trio, comprising the legendary Adrian Belew, supported by the awesome Julie and Eric Slick. I think Adrian may be the best guitarist in the world. His unique style has made him the long standing frontman of King Crimson, as well as playing in a who's who of top bands including Frank Zappa, David Bowie, Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club, Paul Simon, and The Bears. Julie and Eric Slick are brother and sister. Julie was a revelation as a bass player - delivering a stunning combination of complex riffs and fills, crunching power chords, and belew-esque sound effects. As a bass player myself, all I can say is "I am not worthy!" Eric is the best young drummer I've heard in years. These shots are not my usual quality, as I left the Nikon at home. I wanted to concentrate on the music, not on getting the right shot. I'm posting this not as a piece of photo art, but just in case you see these guys billed as playing in your area. If you do, please Go, you'll thank me!
