Re: Eric Valentine
I was at Luke's show in New York last week and the band was very good. 2 hour show. Eric Valentine was solid, unknown to me before the show. He was powerful and energetic and had good chops. Having said that I still prefer the way Simon Phillips handled Party In Simon's Pants. Simon solos while the band plays the main riff and Eric chose to solo without the band playing. A nice solo but I prefer Simon soloing over the riff. Personal preference.
