  2. Our little buddy Jamie had a very serious medical scare last week, and we nearly lost him. He's doing better, resting comfortably, pinching nurses, still doesn't look like Brad Pitt. He'll fill in the details when he's back up and running again, which hopefully will be very soon. Some very scary close-call sh!t. If you praying-types would, I'm sure he'd take them. And if you non-praying types would give him a thought, I know he'd appreciate that, too.

  3. I'd honestly forgotten that C.T. has an album called Busted, so the tagline came off as an unintended pun. Jeezus, I hate gettin' old. Got appointments next week w/ my chiropractor and a hernia surgeon.

  7. Coupla observations: Family got into Meet & Greet, then we were taken on an unexpected private tour of the backstage set by Rick and Tom, bless their hearts. I couldn't really respond to most of our conversation back there, on accounta it's hard to talk when your mandible has abruptly dropped to the floor. Couldn't believe the collectibles that Rick, to his credit, takes on the road (he's always had some strong opinions about 'colleciting' vs. 'hoarding', and rightly so, IMO). Tom showed me the details of his new signature Gretsch 12-string bass, somewhat like his White Falcon b

  9. Yeah, but I think someone of Rick's stature would employ Dewey, Cheatem and Howe.

  10. Busted was OK, but not my favorite Cheap Trick album. Lap Of Luxury came out before it, and Woke Up With A Monster came after it. Both of those were better albums.

  15. I caught the Jordan plays Jimi show at Infinity Hall tonight. Stanley Jordan has never really been on my radar. I was anticipating a jazz fusion take on Jimi. I was dead wrong. He came out in full costume and played the part. He played behind his head, with his teeth, had a lot of Jimi’s moves down. I was shocked and pleased. It was a not a note for note tribute but I can’t think of a reason a Hendrix fan would be disappointed. Check it out if it comes near you.

  16. Yes, I do like to enable, but I also have a decent memory of what gear and/or players and/or topics get mentioned here on the HFC; Gary Moore is a favorite of a few people here from what I've seen, and as good of an example that I can think of at the moment, enabler-wise. If I could find a vintage/used guitar shop that sells gear at relatively reasonable prices, and with a constantly changing selection and wide variety of gear as DGS has/gets, that isn't DGS, I'd go to them, too.

  19. I'm not affiliated with the seller on this forum, but as an owner of both a Reverend Goblin 5/15 1x10 combo amp (currently housed in a custom Mojotone 1x12 combo amp cab with a Jensen Neo 12-100 speaker in it) and a Reverend Kingsnake 1x12 combo amp, I wanted to say that these amps as a clean pedal platform have a great clean tube amp tone and is currently in my gig amp lineup for its tone/portability/wattage. The overdrive when the Schizo switch is switched Lo-Fi or UK has a good quality sounding overdrive that's useful if you want to drive the amp more for a blues or classic rock type of ton

  20. Some of the first songs I learned as a boy and they where always bar favorites. Love Steve’s tone on that clip!! Sounds like musician/guitar/cable/amp!! Tone to the bone!!

  21. A TAD 7025 Mullard style TAD tube now is in V1. The amp sounds nice and clean. I will see if it removed the noise finally. However, the swap was already worth it. The VAC25 sounds very balanced, clear and warm now. Definitely an overall improvement. It's a shame the amps are not produced anymore. They are just great! #https://www.tubeampdoctor.com/7025-s-premium-selected-mullard-style-tad-tubes

  22. Will try to post concert photos and maybe a coupla remarks RE the show later today. Petersson only used one bass, but it was an unreal retro-style item. Stay tuned.

  24. https://www.oakhurstporchfest.org/map-and-schedule It's usually around 200 acts, from American Idol finalists to middle-school kids playing AC/DC covers, cover bands to experimental modular synth drone stuff. Absolutely free all over the historic Oakhurst neighborhood... the biggest challenge is to try to see the acts you want over six hours! Naturally we'll be there, playing mostly new stuff from the album we're currently tracking for a February 2020 release. Hope ya'll will stop by!

  27. Yup. Those are the ones I buy. Couldn't remember the manufacturer. But the GI in the Vintage Chrome sounds killer. That's the demo versus the wall wart adaptor. Playing a big gig next Friday. I'll have a Dollar General cheapie in the tweed suitcase, just in case.

  29. This. Most of the time a V1 swap will drop it a lot. Haven't followed tubes in a while, but if you end up needing a new one, imagine a TAD ECC83 would be worth a look. One thing I can't remember is the class for the VAC25. If its AB, then the V4 is most likely the phase inverter with the 2 triodes balanced, which would be best to remain as the V4.

  32. No affiliation. Posting this as more of an FYI item, in case no one's ever seen old-growth, nearly straight-grained Brazilian Rosewood, not only on the back but the sides too. IMO, it kinda puts 'recent' Brazilian Rosewood guitars with wild/wavy/streaky/knotty grain to shame: https://davesguitar.com/products/martin/d-28-58-madison-608-405-8770/

  33. a little history of the one on the right: sorry for the delay in getting back to you with a little more info on the Schecter. I think I may have told you already, but in case I didn't, I believe it was made in 1980 or possibly 1979. The guitar was purchased in May of 1981, but as I recall, the owner of the store had told me it had been in the store for about a year. This is why he sold it to me at a reduced price. I think the original price had been $1,399. As I mentioned when we met, there have been quite a few guitarists that have played this guitar at some point. This

  34. Eric Johnson loves the old RayOVac silver ones. But I'm not going to try to find those. Just the old Duracell.

  35. Here are some simple numbers and facts for you to think about.... We have 28 people on the road, three trucks, four buses. Fuel and permits for said vehicles. Hotels for each person on many days, ( on back to back shows I sleep on the bus and shower backstage), flights to and from various states and countries. Work permits for international dates. Shipping gear all over the world with cargo companies so fans can see and hear the same show at the same level of quality. Full sound system and lighting rental. We rent all the venues ourselves, do all the advertising

  36. Sean, the builder, goes so far as to say that some of his pedals sound best with a plain cheap carbon battery, not the alkalines or anything fancy.

  39. I'm a big fan too, and am saddened by this news. I've seen her twice here in the Twin Cities with the Muffs, once over 15 years ago and then again two years ago. A couple of my groups have covered That Awful Man over the years. We'll have to play it at our next gathering. She was a true rock star in my book. Although this is not her song, I always loved the energy of the performers in this video, and of course the song. This is Derrick Anderson, featuring Kim Shattuck and Debbi and Vicki Peterson of the Bangles.

  40. "Under Pressure" gets me sometimes. But the my ultimate tear jerker song is "Cats in the Cradle", Harry Chapin. I lost my little brother Brian in July. Was only 42. I can't imagine how my dad feels now if and when he hears this song. -Bobby
