We had an exciting time at the Klipsch sponsored event at the John Varvatos store in the Bowery. This event was with Rock & Roll Hall of Fame legends Matt Sorum,Glenn Hughes, Robin Zander and Chad Smith as well as SoundStageDirect.com and The Musicians Ear. The event featured a Q and A with Matt, Glenn, Rob, and John Varvatos asking the questions. It was great hearing about their experience as musicians as well as the impact vinyl has had on their lives. Both Matt and John have VPI tables and we are excited they are keeping them spinning.
One of the more “colorful” parts of the night was Glenn sharing a story about the craziest fan experience he had. It is amazing what someone can do with a helicopter, police uniform, and pair of handcuff! Meeting Matt Sorum was a great experience! He is a cool down to earth guy that we hope to hang out with more sometime. He has also been a major VPI fan as well as his involvement with The Musicians Ear.
In addition, the Varvatos Bowery store location carries the full production line of VPI turntables on active display. For anyone wondering, we don’t have an Avenger in their yet, but they certainly like it.
… and look who else we found at the event!
Always great to see Michael at an event!
