My RDC experience

Postby Agentmantis » Mon Oct 03, 2016 4:03 am

So I went to go see RDC in Seattle, Wa. The show ended up being cancelled and I was bummed but ended up hanging with an old friend instead so it wasn't a total loss. The show was rescheduled and I just figured I'd go up again in a few months. Later I learned that they were performing in Portland, Or which ruled because I didn't need to drive three hours to go see the band. So a quick backstory.. I have always loved Jake's work with Ozzy but I was a Rhoads fanatic. That's a tough spell to break. I had never heard Badlands at all.. nothing. So Jake was always kinda... second best in my mind. Higher on the list than Zakk mind you. So my wife and I went to go see the Portland show. Jake was mingling with the crowd and hanging around. RDC takes the stage and blew me away quickly! I was introduced to the Badlands stuff for the first time this way. My wife had a bad cold and had taken cold medicine before we went. We had a couple beers and I didn't know about the interactions of cold meds and alcohol. Long story short, we had to leave early. I was super bummed. I'll admit, a grown man shed a few tears of frustration and sadness that evening. I just didn't expect that seeing JEL perform would be as significant as it was. So I didn't want to find myself in a situation where I was upset with my wife for us having to leave. The band was playing Seattle the next night so I went by myself and it ruled! Also I obtained the Badlands albums and listened to them all on the drive up. Now I'm basically an old Jake fan but a new Badlands fan. That music is genius, especially Voodoo Highway. Anyway, I hope that Jake emerges again and makes some more music.
