Yeah, I love Andy's playing. He's got such a distinct style and some serious chops. I remember listening to Death's Individual Thought Patterns and hearing that unmistakable whammy-warble in one of the solos. Immediately ran to look up who was in the band for that and yup, it's Andy Laroque.

Same with the solo on Cold by At the Gates. The version of that solo they do live is....not the same. :lol:

Mike Wead is no slouch either.
Listen to the shred on Last Rites by Mercyful Fate.

As much as Id be on a fly on shit over a tour like this, Id still rather have a "normal" set. There is just too much from the king that I would want to hear. I also saw him a few weeks back and it was incredible.

I'm interested in the Tulsa date. Maybe we can carpool. I may even convince my girlfriend to go. What better way to really test true love than to listen to a painted man sing in falsetto about Satan and dead babies?
