  1. Gibby Disease is spreading:

    When you said 'Gibby Disease is spreading', I thought you were referring to bankruptcy.
  2. I re-read the OP, and for some reason it reminded me of the Lo-Fi stylings of Guided By Voices...in other words, rules are made to be broken, folded, spindled, and mutilated. Just have fun doing it!
  3. I wish I'd gone in the direction of fame and fortune.
  4. Here's a 'blast from the past' from the Eighties...a selection of old Night Flight episodes, complete with the commercials, if you remember watching it on Friday and Saturday nights from when it was on the cable USA Network. Some of the selections are kinda meh IMO, but if you can get past those, the ones that might be worth checking out for a nostalgia fix are the ones that are listed as 'full episode'. http://www.nightflightplus.com/playlists/Night Flight Original Episodes http://www.nightflightplus.com/
  5. Alright Gibson!!

    It's not bad, but I'd like it a LOT better if it was a Jackson Roswell.
  6. Alright Gibson!!

    I feel sorry for anybody who plays one of those things in public.
  7. Glenn Tipton No Longer Touring

    Maybe they complained in the Sixties and Seventies, but probably not before, IMO. Big Band was pretty much dead or dying by the Fifties, before Rockers you had Patty Page and Perry Como taking over the airwaves; they weren't Big Band (more like a solo act with a band backing) but they were palatable to the older generation when compared with Rawk. Maybe things are going full circle again. Or not.
  8. Glenn Tipton No Longer Touring

    From this statement, I wonder if Glenn is actually gonna do what he said in the Blabbermouth article...maybe at a venue that's convenient to him and his home and family, but IMO I wouldn't expect to see him hanging out at every show: Glenn said: "I want everyone to know that it's vital that the JUDAS PRIEST tour go ahead and that I am not leaving the band — it's simply that my role has changed. I don't rule out the chance to go on stage as and when I feel able to blast out some PRIEST! So at some point in the not-too-distant future, I'm really looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful metal maniacs once again."
  9. Glenn Tipton No Longer Touring

    2018 is starting to suck worse than 2017...and we're not even halfway through February. It's one thing when Rockers drop dead suddenly without notice, but long, slow illnesses bite hard. Maybe I'm feeling sorry for myself and my generation, but I don't see any new, truly 'equivalent'-level acts/groups heading in to take these bands' places, either...and I haven't for a long time, and I'm beginning to think it's not gonna happen.
  10. So...

    I completely missed the video in '84...I was stationed in the UK with the U.S. Air Force at the time, as far as I know it never showed over there except maybe on TOTP. It can't be that bad, can it? Yep, it's that bad.
  11. It might have an 'A' width neck (Jazz-width at the nut) instead of a 'B' width neck (standard P-bass width at the nut)...IIRC (and please correct me if I'm wrong), Fender used to incorporate the letter code into the ink stamp on the end of the neck itself. I dunno if Fender was still doing that (ink stamps) when this bass was manufactured, though.
  12. Not that anybody on the HFC follows this guy (I don't), but.... I checked the calendar too, it's nowhere near April Fool's Day today! https://reverb.com/news/john-mayer-reveals-new-image-of-strat-like-prs-model
  13. Non-master volume Marshalls.

    I've owned mid-late '70's DR 504 (50 watt) and DR 103 (100 watt) heads before. Nope, I know I wouldn't want them back, they're just way too freakin' loud for anything other than a large venue.
  14. Things That Make Me Say Hmmmm....

    Apparently it's official, DGS has a banner promoting their addition of Heritage Guitars on their website (it's seen when you first hit the website), alongside adverts for Fender and G&L.
  15. Non-master volume Marshalls.

    I think that in comparison with Rock (or Rawk), modern-day 'popular music' tastes pretty much suck and bite at the same time...it's just too tame. It's also just not worth the effort to do anything else with that music except be a DJ playing the latest 'hit' recordings, if you're playing what passes for 'popular music' nowadays (gee, that sounds a lot like what happened with Disco). At least with Rock, you can put your own stamp and interpretation on it. Justin Timberlake doing the Super Bowl LII Halftime Show didn't help the situation any, and didn't change my mind at all about that...maybe I'm simply just not into modern day Pop/R&B/NeoSoul, but I thought it was bland and boring as hell; and what passed as a Prince tribute was so nondescript, that nothing about it stuck in my mind except the little video clip of Prince they played. I can't figure out why the 'crowd' on the field was so hopped up about the show unless they were drunk or being paid to be enthusiastic. They shoulda had somebody like Vintage Trouble come out and rip the place up, now there's something to be enthusiastic about! BTW, don't get me started with 'Modern Country'! Rant/Derail over, sorry!
