Once again Paul rocked the joint.

For those lucky enough to go to the Casino Morongo show at the Key Club in Palm Springs Sunday night, CHEERS to you all.

Paul put on one of his best perfomances with energy and force. We were lucky enough to get second row in the middle right next to the three Japanese girls we met at most of the west cost QPR shows. In a small night club, Paul played to about 500 people. What a treat this was. Playing a mix from over his carrier, Paul showed why he is one of the best. Highlights were, Shooting Star, Satisfaction Garaunteed, Radioactive, and
a Jimmy Hendricks tip of the hat.

We also got treated to an great band including the drummer from the Firm, and Nils Lofgren on guitar from Bruce Springsteens band.

Paul closed the show after three oncores to do a solo acoustic version of Seagal, very nice.

So I raise the glass until next time.

Best to All

Yes, I've always been a fan of 'Seagal.' Such a nice tune. In fact, I've been a fan since he began his 'carrier' in the 1960s.

Seriously, though...good show, but I want more Free material.

And, I want some more hints as to whether or not this QPR novel will have another chapter written...be it another tour or a possible stint in the studio.

Rumors of solo shows for Paul in the UK/ Japan in LATE 2007 do leave a rather large window open... Hmm...

Hey Atomic Dog!

Thanks for the report on the gig. Can you comment at all on Nils' performance? What songs did he sit in on, did he do any cool solos? Anything you might remember would be great. I know you were there to see Paul, but would love to hear about Nils as well. Thanks so much!

Cheers!

Do you think this means that the adventure with Queen is over?

What is going through his head everytime he hits the stage and sees he's playing for just 500 people. When a few months before he was with Queen playing for 10 000s of people

I was wondering the same thing. Not that there's anyhting wrong with playing to a smaller crowd, and I'm sure he gives his 100%, but it must get him thinking...

Maybe he doesn't mind the smaller crowd.
There's less production on a smaller stage.
They can focus on the blusier songs in his catalogue.
It's a more intimate setting so it's easier to connect to the audience.
He's playing music because he enjoys it so maybe it's just for fun.

It speaks books about his character that he still enjoys playing small concerts. Very laid-back. And obiously very interested in the music itself.
