Chester during the WW tour

Hi there, I remember reading somewhere about the bad reports Chester got during the first part of the WW tour. That was really surprising because listening to those shows i hear him playing beautifully, in fact making several song sound better than the originals

I think it was the very first shows (at the Rainbow?) where Chester had received some minor critical reviews. I remember the term "fish out of water" was used. Basically, these were his first live gigs with the band, and apparently he seemed a little out of place, possibly playing a bit tight and careful, and it took a handful of shows for him to loosen up. But the same reviewer (I believe) saw him shortly afterward and acknowledged Chester had settled in quite nicely.
