I'm not a big blues rock fan, but that's not Eamonn McCormack's fault. He's a nice guy and a skilled player, who played the show alone with some backing tapes. An ok opener for Jan Akkerman.

Soon after he started, a smell of burning paper came up, along with some smoke clouds under the ceiling. McCormack pays some tribute to the famous Frank Zappa/Smoke on the Water incident at Montreux.

So why not leave the closing words to Frank Zappa:

"I have taken your time
I have sung you my song
ain't no great revelation
but it wasn't too long"
