    I am a huge fan of Adam, and even though this was quite a treat, if they cover it again I hope he sings it with a little more justice to the original. Was so excited to hear it and was left a little disappointed. And for the make out sessions, simulated jerking off, and mic BJ’s, it is starting to turn me off a bit. Please Adam, you could be so huge without all this! We all know your sexual preference, but you can still be true to yourself without acting it out on stage!

    WOW! He has outdone himself alright! What a treat to have witnessed this amazing performance. Jimi Hendrix would be proud. Monte also done superb job with Purple Haze on his guitar. Love you guys. I will be back to comment when I can pull myself together.

    Never let it be said that Adam doesn’t have a sense of humor. Beautiful man

    There is just ONE little minor detail you forgot to put in your article……that song was a tribute to Montee, his lead guitarist, for his birhday because he loves it!

    So when are Isaac and Cam’s birthdays? Purple Haze for Monte’s, Enter Sandman for Tommy I’d love to see what he’d do for Isaac and Cam on their birthdays. PS. I love Isaac so glad he’s with the band. What a great personality and he seems so happy to be a part of the Glam Band.

    Loved Purple Haze and Whole Lot of Love Adam did in Paris.
