“It’s wonderful to have, first of all, band support, and get text messages and emails from around the world, and listening to the audience was very exciting. It’s not nice to see an old man cry, but we cry.”

Tipton helped the band set up the set: “It’s hard, it’s one of the hardest things to do, because when you decide to leave any track aside, you disappoint someone, we try to represent the whole band where we’ve been, where we’ve been, where So when we have a new album, some of the old favorites have to go out to make room for the new songs. But it’s never perfect, which is why we always have to make some adjustments after the first shows.”

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
