  1. And yet, without him, the band couldn't write. "Momentary Lapse of Reason," was not written by the remaining members. Roger Waters is a remarkable lyricist. Something that is overlooked by most. He is a remarkable composer. He is self indulgent, especially since post, "The Final Cut," or possibly before. Grumpy? For sure. But that was Pink Floyd.
  2. Back in the late seventies he tried to make a comeback. I guess he had an hiatus or lost his record label or something. His first concert for the tour was at the Lakeland Civic Center which at the time was the premier center in the entire US. (Leave it to our commissioners to lose that.) I didn't see him but the review in the Lakeland Ledger was scathing. He apparently celebrated before coming on stage. Ended up puking under the spot lights. Passed out or something and the concert was cut short. I think he may have quit drinking after that.
  3. I bought this because it was on sale. Learning curve is kind of high for me since I don't enjoy turning knobs on a simple stomp box. But, it has a lot of presets and a few I have written down to use for something in the future. The only knobs I mess with are the pitch bend and modulation.
  4. @JGravelin probably has the best stuff. He said he'd send me a magnet but I never followed through.
  5. I don't think I've ever listened to those records. I remember when they came out around y2k. The name obviously caught my eye. I read in a magazine around that time, I think it may have been, "Reptiles Magazine," because I wasn't reading any guitar related stuff then, that Slash had a snake collection. But, he didn't take care of them himself. He had a caretaker, lol. He had an albino reticulated python which was pretty impressive at the time.
  6. I found the photo and gave you a link to a page and a few photos. Eastern collared lizard.
  7. A few years ago I saw an acoustic set with Myles and Slash. He sounded played really well and the acoustic sounded good. His tone and style with GNR was annoying to my ears as well as Axl. Just couldn't stand anything they did though all I heard was what was on the radio which I turned off at the beginning of the songs. Just couldn't stand them. This video changed my mind about him. That was some damn good shredding.

A police report has been filed with the Los Angeles Police Department, and the two bands were advised to take the story public in order to help raise awareness with other small business owners and bands alike. STATIC-X said: "We want to encourage our community to keep a close eye on your property and on your facilities during this unprecedented time… We also ask for our fans to keep an eye out for the stolen items and maybe we can help the police find these people." Drummer Ken Jay added: "With most of us in lockdown, and those who aren't locked down, wearing masks in public, apparently it's a great time to be a thief." STATIC-X has released a list of stolen equipment, complete with many of the serial numbers. The list includes multiple LED video panels, two drum kits, more than 40 cymbals, various high-end audio/video gear, microphones, racks and branded backdrops. STATIC-X has also set up a tip center where you can share any info that may help in the investigation. "This is tough one to swallow," says DOPE singer Edsel Dope, who is also rumored to be the masked STATIC-X frontman Xer0. "Our bands are small businesses that have developed and refined our touring systems over years. The amount of time and effort that has gone into building out the tech and AV production alone is hard to quantify. It's a lot of money. We own all of our own gear and have built our touring business through years of continuous investment back into ourselves." Click here for pictures, full list of missing equipment, and to submit anonymous tip. STATIC-X's long-awaited, seventh studio album, "Project: Regeneration Vol. 1", will be made available on May 29. It will feature 12 brand new STATIC-X tracks, containing many of the final vocal performances and musical compositions of late STATIC-X frontman Wayne Static, along with the original "Wisconsin Death Trip" lineup of bassist Tony Campos, drummer Ken Jay, and guitarist Koichi Fukuda. Static died after mixing Xanax and other powerful prescription drugs with alcohol, according to the coroner's report. The 48-year-old Static, whose real name was Wayne Richard Wells, was found dead in his Landers, California home on November 1, 2014. Static founded STATIC-X in 1994 and achieved commercial success with "Wisconsin Death Trip", which included the rock radio hit "Push It". The group issued five more studio albums before disbanding permanently in June 2013. Static had been pursuing a solo career at the time of his death.
  9. It's cool that he can play solo, rhythm, and make a machine gun noise with his guitar all at the same time.
  10. Man, I hated this guy when he first came out with the Bawh wit da bawh wit da dangy dang wicki wicki. But I find it energising now, especially with this lock up. And he gets some fuckin' tits. I like the, "I ain't no fuckin' midget," guy too.
