Well folks... I got the gig! Brian and Roger picked myself and Tristan Avakian (a truly fantastic musician!), to be guitarists of We Will Rock You Toronto. It will be playing at the Canon Theatre, 7 shows a week, starting in mid-March. I hope to see any QZers who can make the trip.

The auditioning was an amazing experience. Last week's audition was very intense, and on Tuesday, Brian and Roger came and took control of the second audition. It was only about 3 hours long, compared to 7 or 8 hours last Wednesday.

The band also got to watch the press conference yesterday, and that was a very cool experience as well. It has all been so incredibly exciting so far. The next year will be a great one in the life of Bob!

Holy Crap, congrats. I was hoping I'd hear good news about the band after I saw that they announced the leads.

Very impressive, GH.

I already congratulated you on MSN Messenger but here's another chance to do so, hehe :). Great to see a talented Queenzoner involved in activities related directly with the band. Cool! 2007 is looking good for you.

Fantastic, congratulations. I was waiting to read your report about the auditioning, did I miss it? What's it like to play in front of Brian and Roger?
Great to hear they picked a REALLY dedicated fan.
