ABIII got me through some tough times when it first came out. I felt like that album was written for me and came out right when I needed it.

Random question to ask, but in the 15 years of this band existing, has there even been a show where any of the four guys were not part of it? I don't think I can recall if that was the case. Even if Myles is sick, he will still play on.

Ab3 is long story of my younger days. Best music Alter Bridge has ever made IMO

Wasn’t really sure where to put this but at Iron Maiden’s show on Monday night they played Addicted to Pain over the PA while the stage was being setup. Also played a Slash and Myles song, Hard and Fast.

I read this sentence way too fast the first time and thought it said that Iron Maiden played Addicted to Pain. That would certainly be interesting.

I’m imaging how mad the crowd would have been that they used up a song slot for a cover lol

Not that I remember. I love that there's never been a change in membership in this band, as well. I can't imagine AB ever being anything other than the 4 guys.

My second show (KC, Fortress tour) Myles was sick and they took watch over you and maybe open your eyes out of the set.

I met them before the show, and while the rest of the guys were inviting, he was just kind of there. I knew he was sick, but it did change my opinion if him for a bit.

When they hit the fall leg of the tour, he was much more energetic. He's fistbumped me at a couple of other shows during Metalingus in Tulsa '16. And Shed My Skin the next year in St Louis. So my opinion did a 180.

He manned up and sang through that spring 2014 tour. But I think a lesser man would have cancelled.

There is a live version of metalingus with Tremonti's guitar sounding decent?

Live from Amsterdam sounds quite good but I get what's you're saying. Part of the problem might be the fact that the riffs there are quite cut up and they get lost in the mix. Another thing is that the sound for the entire show is that the Myles' guitar is louder and on the left and Mark's is quieter and on the right. Metalingus is without Myles on the guitar but the mix stays the same so Mark's sound get lost beneath the bass and the drums.

People show their love and appreciation in a variety of ways.

But, yeah, that was kind of odd...
