SQL Saturday Phoenix took place last weekend. I went last year and I really enjoyed it. I planned on going this year as well, especially since it takes place incredibly close to my house, but those plans were destroyed by a wrecking ball.
Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band were playing in Los Angeles on the Friday before SQL Saturday. And since the tour wasn't stopping in Arizona, that meant one thing: road trip! Sorry SQL, but I can't pass up a chance to see Bruce. Here's an example of why: Tom Morello from Rage Against The Machine joined Bruce for several songs and, towards the end of this one, played one of the hottest guitar solos I've ever heard.
If anyone is interested in the time I got to meet and have dinner with a couple of the members of the E Street Band, check this out.
