Paul Gilbert -- Hollywood, CA -- February 28th, 2009
Just came back from the show. What an epic one at that!! Richie Koetzen, George Lynch and Paul Gilbert came together for the Guitar Generation tour at the House Of Blues. Each of them played a 45-minute individual set after which they did a jam set which was f-ing insanely incredible! Could not believe the perfection with which they were trading solos and taking turns. They must have really practised the jam well.
Well, myself being a biiig Racer-X and Paul Gilbert fan, the highlights for me were Scarified and Technical Difficulties. But I also really enjoyed the covers of The Doors' Light My Fire and Rolling Stones' Jumping Jack Flash during the jam set.
I have seen quite a few virtuosic guitar players in shows, gotta say Paul is definitely the fastest of them all!
I managed to grab the paper setlists of Paul Gilbert and the jam sets.
Here they are :

Paul Gilbert's song 'Pulsar' was an unreleased track which he said will be in the next album. He also called Billy Sheehan on stage to participate in the jam.
