    I sent his contact page one of my YouTube videos, and he really liked it, and so I got to play "Chicago Line" and "All Your Love" with the legend at his show at a small theater near me!!!

    I can't even begin to describe how amazing I felt up there with him, and he really liked my playing to boot!

    I will surely never forget this. :)

    Wow! I can't even begin to imagine how cool that must have been. Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor and you have all stood and played in the same spot on stage with the legendary John Mayall. Amazing. And you played All Your Loving! One of Eric's finest moments and now one of your's too. Congratulations!

    You will never forget it.

    Ryan, That right there makes you a celebrity in your own right! :cool:

    Don't let it go to your head! Did you record any of it?

    BTW, What part of CT are you in?

    I used to live up there many years ago, and still have a few dusty old connections... ;)

    My mom took an iPhone vid, and yeah I won't let my head get too big (but I don't know bout the hair ;) )

    I live in Ivoryton and Old Saybrook, down by the shoreline.

    Cool! I've got folks in Durham. I have fond memories of the Cockaponset state forest... There's is a fragrance to those woods that is especially sweet and unique.

    If you're in Ivoryton, I imagine you know what I mean... And if you don't, you should go visit! The foliage must be gorgeous this time of year!

    I just checked out your Youtube channel, you can definitely play!

    Do you write originals? You should, even if you don't think you're that good at it. Do it enough, and eventually you get good at it!

    Keep the Faith!

    That is amazing - you obviously impressed him good & proper . I'd live off the bragging rights for a long long time if that was me . Nice one!
