  1. Was he in Trouble for a bit or am I misremembering that?
  2. Vintage PERSONAL band publicity photos

    I had the T-shirt of that one.
  3. Nazareth yesterday

    Me too. I only got to see them once, but I got on the bus after the show and they signed a bunch of my stuff and took pictures with me. Two weeks later their original drummer, Darrell Sweet, died. So glad I got to see them with 3 out of 4 of the original guys: Dan, Darrell, and Pete. They opened with Razamanaz and Dan just blew everybody's head off with that voice of his. That's Carl Sentance singing lead now. He's put time in with several NWOBHM or hard rock bands before I think - Persian Risk and Krokus for sure, and maybe some others.
  4. Vintage PERSONAL band publicity photos

    They posted dozens and they all looked just alike! I think I knew 2 of them.
  5. Vintage PERSONAL band publicity photos

    This is from the mid-90's maybe??? I'm the guy in the hat. We had someone come over and take some shots of us in an effort to make a press kit and be more professional. This is a shot we all liked but it was slightly out of focus. Thinking back, that probably suited us at the time! The band was called (faucet) and yes, the parentheses were part of the name (oooooh, how "alternative" and artsy!), as seen on the one shirt we had made that the bass player is wearing. We would trade it around so different ones of us got to wear it in the photo session and at the gigs. I still have it!
  6. Vintage PERSONAL band publicity photos

    OK, not really but a lot of my bands have certainly felt like this!
  7. GC CS Sucks

    There are two in Richmond, VA. At one of them, you can't so much as glance in the direction of an item before a salesman is hounding you about it. At the other, there are always 15-20 workers there and they all just stand in a pile helping no one. Polar opposites just 20 miles apart, and both with an approach to customer "service" that sucks.
  8. I'm sorry to see it go for so cheap, but I'm glad that Smiley didn't get to rip anyone off.
  9. That is exactly what I was looking for when I joined this forum years ago. Fortunately I was able to pick up NOS 'burst Standard and one of the three Zandards since then. If I didn't have both of them, I would have seriously considered this. GLWTS!
  10. Wood Filler Putty for Screw Holes

    This is my method too.
  11. Ha! My second amp was a Peavey Bandit 65!
  12. No apology necessary! I just wanted to make sure I hadn't messed up one of my ads. BTW, I've reduced the prices on a couple of them even further for HFCers.
  13. Nobody bought the Mesa combo. Why did you think that? Just want to make sure my ad isn't messed up.
  14. Cyber Monday bump. Get yourself a nice amp right here!
