Rocky's, Charlotte, NC
March 16, 1993

 

This was a very cool show. When we walked in Rick Richards and Charlie Quintana were sitting at the bar drinking a beer. My buddy and I plopped down and chatted them up a bit. We were both big Georgia Satellites fans and talked to Rick about a bunch of their shows we'd seen. His fuzzy memory couldn't recall any of 'em which elevated the hard-partying rock n roll image I had of Rick even further. My friend worshipped Dylan as a modern day deity and he got some "Bob" stories from Charlie as he'd played a stint with him not too long before. They were nice guys - who like to rock. I was never a Guns fan but always liked the Izzy material - it had a deep blues backbone that really came out after he lit out on his own. He was really in his element with this band and this setlist covering most of his first solo record while throwing in Stones, blues and reggae covers. It was a really packed show and there were some concerns about fan safety as they were crushing in up front. .
