Let's forward another 10 hours or so, and we are in New Orleans. Backstage we have tons of friends of the boys, and for the first time on this tour, Kirk has is own surf VIP room...WOW! A familiar face from the past & the present is here, Pepper Keenan, singer & guitar player from Corrosion of Conformity. He told me they are working on some new material, and that it is heavy with some kick ass riffs. Kirk signed up for another guitar teacher job, and tonights student learned a lot and got his moneys worth. Photos on the way, and more updates to come.
