Post show hang, Milan. Lately, I sing a few vocal parts in the set, but with someone like this in the house (such a beautiful voice), time to step it up..;) Always a pleasure. Grazie Miss Scabbia!

"What'll it be?!" Post show event at Roma watering hole: #BarBraccioDeMontone . Pouring a well deserved round for the band, our Italian hosts, #RossiniManagement (well deserved!) & new friends, Grazie & Salute! #ASTEuropeUnbound #AST

#AST in Roma, 1st time! After overnight travel, some early morning sightseeing & a nice meal, we are resting up for our Italian debut. Tonight: Planet Live, Via Del Commercio 36
Showtime: 22:00
Buon Giorno!

Chuck Berry created the 1st lead gtr licks I ever learned. His music had a direct impact on The Beatles, Hendrix, ACDC, Prince, Lemmy & too many more to name. I first discovered him as a kid watching the 1980 film "American Hot Wax" - it's available online and recommended (ok, the acting is so/so, but Chuck Berry's live performance is mesmerizing). A huge toast to someone who changed the world for the better RIP

Wrapping up a fun set in E Germany, no Guinness here, but we have hats (& the pilsner is good) #AST wishes all a Happy & SAFE #StPatricksDay

#AST 1st time ever in Budapest, 1 hr till showtime, great catering. At the risk of stating the obvious: u CAN have your cake & eat it too 😆‬

Vienna: AST @ Reigen Live Tonight Today, found another great guitar shop, this one all boutique acoustic and specializing in the traditional "Viennese guitar" from the 1930s. The proprietor/craftsman, Michael (pictured), restores and builds these which come in several variations (and have as many as 17-strings). Not ready to make the commitment yet - whole new learning curve - but they sound beautiful. May have to pick up one of these up one day... if in town: Gold'n'Guitars A-1130 Wein Maxingstrasse 2, Vienna
