Favorite AMA memory?

"At a recent AMA awards dinner, Dr. Carl Nohr was introduced to the stage for a guitar solo (albeit on an iPad) that reminded us of the performances of Eddie Van Halen or Stevie Ray Vaghan. There was sweat ejected from the stage, groupies lining up for autographs (of Robert's Rules) and a general air of stardom!" - Dr. Korbyl
