Bruce Dickinson



Everett and I went to the Lead Singer of Iron Maiden Bruce Dickinson "What does this Button do?" book signing stop in Ridgewood, NJ yesterday.  It was a 3 hour drive each way we got there early were 12th in line.  As for the actual signing it was over quick (Less than 5 minutes from when he started) I bought 2 books walked up he signed and we were moved along. No conversation, no pictures, kinda shook his hand I put my right hand out and he shook it with his left hand so he didn't have to drop his pen.  I did snap a picture as he signed and one after I stepped away see below. By the time we left Bookends it was Sold Out and there was a few hundred people wait outside the store.  I also bought from the store a signed Corey Taylor (Stone Sour/Slipknot Singer) book "America 51".

Highly Suspect

Ben & I went to the sold out Highly Suspect show at The Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA on October 31, 2017.  It was interesting that it was Halloween and both bands dressed up in costumes for the occasion.  The opening band was Bones (UK) who is a 3 piece English band 2 women fronted  and a drummer.  We didn't get any autographs, set-lists or picks from this show as it was very crowded as it was sold out and I think they may have even over sold it.
