April 6-10, 2008: Five days and four nights aboard the Carnival Elation. The whole trip was traveling from San Diego, California to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and back. The 3rd annual “Cabo Wabo Arrr We Having Fun Yet Cruise.” Highlights to getting this pic was doing shots with Sammy & Michael Anthony before the show. Great live show at the Cabo Wabo Cantina with Sammy going through a catalog with his band “The Waborita’s” and a few choice Van Halen songs. Only bad thing that happened to me? Guess who lost his wallet in a taxi cab and almost didn’t make it back to the ship to come home… The pic was put in my hand by Sammy himself, and I also got to have dinner with Michael Anthony on the cruise ship.

If you have a story about how you got a great guitar pic from an artist, send it to me screamin@wrif.com and a photo!
