Check Out Living Colour’s Rig Rundowns – The Most Complicated Setups EVER

The coolest thing about YouTube is the access we now have to guitar stuff.  Rig rundowns, guitar lessons, gear reviews where we can actually hear the stuff...and you can see how your favorite guitar players get the sounds they get!

And, of course, the lovely Rebecca Dirks.  Although she seems to have disappeared from all the recent Rig Rundowns.  I'm sad.

Check out this RR she did with the guys in Living Colour.  Not only are they great players, they perform at such a high level while navigating the most complicated setups I've ever seen!

Daytona Bike Week! – Wayland Tour Log 3/12/14

Last night it felt so great to be on a big stage. We've been playing club dates all winter and I forgot the excitement that comes with being able to run and jump all over the stage.

Phil’s been M.I.A. – Wayland Tour Blog 3/11/14

I'm really sorry I haven't written a tour log in a few days. I appreciate everyone contacting me asking about them.

It's been crazy in Camp Wayland. There were a few times I sat down to write a log and couldn't figure out where to begin. Ha ha!

Birmingham, Ala., was a fun night and we really bonded with the local opening bands. We were so relieved to play a nice room and a beautiful sound system with a sound guy who knew what he was doing! I swear the building could've caught fire and burnt down around us and we wouldn't have noticed.

Goodbye to Big Fancy – Wayland Tour Log 3/6/14

The show was a lot of fun last night. We had a good set but I was so excited to see Zach Myers, Zack Mack, and Chris Allen play. They killed it. At the end of their set we all went up on stage with them and jammed "Take it Easy" by The Eagles and "The Weight" by a The Band. Those guys are such amazing musicians , it's a true honor to play with them.

Walkin’ in Memphis – Wayland Tour Log 3/5/14

Well, where do I start?  

Bobaflex broke down on the way to St. Louis yesterday. So, we took over as the headliner of last night's show. We played a great show and the sound on stage was loud and inspiring.

Heat Wave! – Wayland Tour Log 3/4/14

Last night really escalated quickly. I would love to have watched through the eyes of an outsider as the shenanigans ensued between us and our pals in Bobaflex. When we get together it's like high school kids who's parents have gone on vacation. We can't wait to break every rule we can think of and have the best time doing so!! Haha! We love those guys, and we love their music.

Guns N’ Roses ‘Appetite for Democracy’ DVD is Finally Coming Out!

In true GNR fashion, the 3D concert film from Guns N Roses' first Las Vegas residency from 2012 is scheduled for release!  There were teases for the release all last year, and then, suddenly everything went silent.  There were rumors that it actually had to do with the company putting it together, and not Axl.

Just rumors.

Ice, Fog and the Great Plains – Wayland Tour Log 3/2/14

Freezing!!! Our bus isn't insulated at all and there are many holes in it. We don't notice when it's sitting still with the heat cranked, but when we're going 70mph across the Kansas in 2 degree weather, it tends to be all we can think about. I can't get warm. I'm in my bunk, in my sleeping bag, under 2 blankets, and my feet are so cold they might fall off. Because the storm came through the area, we decided not to make the drive to KC last night. It was super foggy and slippery.

Coming Down the Mountain! – Wayland Tour Log 3/1/14

Yesterday was a crazy Friday. We loaded into the club at our usual 5 p.m.

Once we loaded in and sound-checked, Mitch and I started walking to meet our friend Ryan for dinner. It was a 35-minute walk to the Thai restaurant. We laughed the whole way there and talked about out plans for the next few months. Ryan ended up getting stuck at work and we had dinner -- just the two of us.

One Road Up a Mountain! – Wayland Tour Log 2/28/14

Wow! Back in the saddle again! We all spent the three "days off" working from morning to night.

Our days were filled with running errands, getting gear fixed, and booking shows,and planning tour routing. I don't think I set my phone down hardly at all during the break. My plan was to spend time with my guitar but there just wasn't enough hours in the day.

Counting Down the Days to Thursday Night – Wayland Tour Log 2/23/14

It's been a wild and intense 24 hours since my last tour log. Yesterday, 2 hours before load in, we found out that the venue never got a sound man for the show. They had a great system, with a beautiful digital soundboard, with no one to run it! This could have easily resulted in canceling the show. Luckily within the hour we got a hold of our friend Rob, who we met through Royal Bliss, and he happens to live in Logan! He was scheduled to leave for a gig in Paris, France that afternoon that had JUST gotten canceled! He came and saved the day!

One Road Out of Salt Lake City – Wayland Tour Log 2/22/14

Last night was fantastic in Salt Lake City! There were some little road bumps in sound and production as usual, but nothing team Wayland couldn't overcome. For those instances we have a secret weapon, his name is Chip! Haha! We had a fantastic turn out and the local bands were great to work with! I was so tired by the time I got into my bunk at the end of the night.
