  1. You should have opened a few more cases while you were at the 4-3-2-1 Club. As I said in a different thread, we stock these types of guitars at the 4-3-2-1. haha. Seriously, stop by again. All of my favorite guitars have P-90s, and I might even be talked into parting with one. At the very least, you can put a few different models through their paces.
  2. It's time to restring the T-51 and prepare the queso dip. Mmm Hmm.
  3. I'll have some stuff on the grill. The usual.
  4. Bump. It's looking like one of those small, intimate gatherings. Those are often the smokingest!
  5. Glad to hear he's still out and about. It was great hanging with him here in Mpls last fall, and got to hear him play too. Thanks for the update!
  6. Don't you mean my new-ish P90 Monaco GoldTop Elite?
  7. Those are never in short supply at the 4-3-2-1. We stock them.
  8. Do you think he ever smoked reefer or experienced windowpane?
  9. dammit is right. Our timing has not been good this year!
  10. I miss my people! It's been far too long since I've opened the house to my local guys for a full-on Hamer assault. Is anyone around that weekend? Want to stop by? Let's do this. I wonder if any celebrities are available? You know the drill. Anytime after 5:00, unless you show up earlier.
  11. I'm pretty sure I started hanging out here in 96 or 97. I had one Hamer, my 80 Sunburst and was using the newfangled internet to try to find out what it was worth. I started lurking, and making guitar purchases. My first ebay purchase, in February 97 I think, was a Phantom Custom, and I pretty quickly bought a 12 string eclipse, delivered in January 98, which I still own and play. The infighting was legendary, and I would pop in occasionally and flex my vocabulary with words like "puerile." I think the time is right to publish this little gem. This was penned by yours truly, and the document is dated May 12, 1999. For all the obvious reasons, I never published this back in the day. I've now got the band which could pull this off, so perhaps it's time to set it to music. Names have been changed to protect the guilty! 4321 Productions presents: Het I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, so I could be like Beau! I’d bash some queers to allay my fears, that I am just like them, Oh! I’d ogle girls with fancy curls, then whack off in the closet. I’d scratch my balls while caressing dolls, and drag them by the hair, Oh! I’d join the boys with all their toys, in puffing up our egos. I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, so Fred would like me more, Oh! He’d use his wit, that little snit, and beat off in the toilet. I’d be his friend, he’d take me in and let me touch his Hamer! We’d stroke the strings and touch the curves, and then we’d make some music. I’d make him sing, that little song, he likes so much to sing, Oh! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more! I wish I was a hetero, then the boys would like me more!
  12. Thanks for sharing this song. In 1988, just before I moved to Minneapolis and bought the 4-3-2-1 Club, I befriended a Frenchman who worked for my company and spent time training in the US in the factory where I worked. We became fast friends and started making each other mix tapes. Les Rita Mitsouko was one of the groups he made a tape for, as was Serge Gainsbourg. This brings back old memories, and I got to spend weeks in Paris as a result of this friendship. This makes me want to dig out my old tapes and rock out to this music again. Fun stuff!
  13. Here's the crew at Martyrs, all except George. The Talking Heads tribute band, Start Making Sense did a phenomenal job.
  14. It was a perfect weekend. Lots of fun had by all. Here's a few photos from the weekend: Huge thanks to Badger Dave for the hospitality, and the TLC with my original Hamer. This is my 80 Sunburst which I purchased new from Guzzardo Music in Belvidere, IL in 1981. Sir Dan, ever the bookish one,even in the Chicago Music Exchange. One half of CME's Wall of Les Pauls.
