Waiting For Lightning, Danny Way’s bio-pic premiered last night, April 10th, at the ArcLight Cinerama Dome in Hollywood. The turn out was good, and so was the response.

Waiting For Lighting is the story of how it came to be, with special appearances by many, including Colin McKay, Brian Harper, Christian Hosoi, Skin Philips, Jacob Rosenberg, J. Grant Brittian, Jake Phelps, and more.
