Once a year the streets of Anaheim California, home of The Angels, The Ducks and Mickey Mouse are shoulder to shoulder with musicians, merchants and music fans from all over the world and this year is no different. Not even the torrential downpour of Southern California rain (yeah right our East Coast visitors scoff), could detour nor discourage the NAMM faithful, both old timers and newcomers, from joining in the insanity that is NAMM 2013. The floors were buzzing with merchants, distributors, visitors, media and of course the myriad rock stars showing some love for their respective sponsors and adoring fans. Attendance for day one is usually lighter than two and three and I’m sure this year will be no different, however, the turnout was quite robust nonetheless. Seen roaming the halls today was Lita Ford, Billy Sheehan, Rikki Rockett and CC DeVille of Poison, Sean McNabb (Dokken), Mitch Perry (Lita Ford), Jacob Bunton, Lonnie Paul and Johnny Martin (Adler) to name but a few. I can assure you, there were dozens more I missed. But in honor of day one of 2013 NAMM below are interviews and photos (more to come).
Video Interviews (More to come.)
Photos (More to come).
Day two kicks off at 10:00 am Friday and won’t end ‘til the rock n’ roll cows come home (a lil down home lingo for our Midwest guests). Team Scream will be there to get you the interviews you want to hear from the rockers you love. Signing off!
