We first met Col. R at our first Rock Band event in Iraq when he was our emcee and we've become good friends and long-time supporters since! He can definitely play the guitar and now we're helping him teach guitar to our warriors over there! Thanks Big Daddy for your service and letting us be part of the fun!!!
Guitar Lessons for our Warriors in Iraq and Kuwait
We're supplying the guitars and one USAF Colonel is supplying the talent!
When one of our good friends and multi-tour adoptee, Col. Ralph R asked if we could get some guitars so he could give some lessons, one of our rock band friends, EOS, took up the challenge IMMEDIATELY! Before we knew it, we had seven guitars for Col R (we call him Big Daddy!). Five electric Ibanez guitars, one bass (all with amps!) and two acoustic guitars.
Well, Big Daddy already has five troopers signed up! We're thinking this could be the start of a real cool project. So if we have other guitar players who would like to try it, chaplains, etc., please let us know. Maybe we can get our other band friends to do the same.
But a HUGE thank you to Joe Birardi, Bill Tuohy and the band EOS for their fantastic generosity and quick action! More details to come on some of their tunes they want to post on iTunes and give the proceeds to our troops. Also, a big thanks to John Diehl and Toms River (NJ) Music for their great deal to EOS!
