I went to NAMM for the first time yesterday. It was a one day thing for me but have always wanted to check it out. In addition to seeing almost any piece of music gear along with the latest releases, there were demos, autograph sessions and performances. In the short time that I was there, I saw Dick Dale, Bootsy Collins, Steve Morse, System of a Down, Gene Simmons, Slash, Eagles of Death Metal and more.
