Triumph always brought a spectacular stage show to go with their great music. They were three guys putting out an unbelievable sound. Rik Emmett is a guitar master who never failed to deliver. He played so hard that it was not unusual to see a busted guitar string hanging down while he belted out a tune.
One of my favorite photos of Rik was taken during the intro to "Lay It On The Line". He has his double necked guitar and he's surrounded by smoke and blue light as he proceeds to blow us away. A memorable moment for me.
As usual, we went looking for the band after the show and found them at a nearby hotel. I met Rik and walked away with a couple of guitar picks from this guitar great.
