  1. I’ll have to monkey around with my AMP11 this week when I’m home again. Still noisy on the Boost...
  2. Surprise drummer for “Black Coffee In Bed”?
  3. RIC and Paulina were still legally married at the time of his death. I believe they were just separated.
  4. Dave Grohl does not look impressed by Mr. Tillbrook’s choice of stage attire, despite the afternoon heat... However, Squeeze is great live, so he may just get a pass?
  5. I’ve seen him a few times before, but caught him in DC last week, and it was the best I’ve ever seen him. I was doing more watching and not much cell phone pic taking...
  6. I found out Jim Morgan was also there about halfway through the Foo’s set, and tried about 30 times to send a message, but next to zero connectivity in the place - it was packed!
  7. Flew into Louisville to take my son to the Bourbon & Beyond Festival this weekend, primarily, because he’s a HUGE Foo fan, but also because, well, Bourbon. Had the great pleasure of finally meeting Greg (Currypowder) in person. Glad we were finally able to catch up, and next time, we’ll bring Shishkovs to the party! I did really dig the Malcolm Young Gretsch too!
  8. Damnit. Got me again! was torn between the Chrome Modern and the Purple Plexi, so I flipped a coin. Purple Reigns, Purple Reigns...
  9. The only reason I didn't sell it in the last two years is because it's my son's favorite guitar. That may change...
  10. Congrats! They’re fantastic guitars, and mine rendered my #1 Standard almost obsolete.
  11. Yes - it was done with drum wrap, shipped from Ludwig. I’m sure Mike Shishkov, Dave Brown or Kim K. could weigh in, and there was also a Hamer Workshop Blog post about it, but things like the back of the neck were sprayed in Candy Apple Red. I’ve seen the guitar up close and held it, and it’s a dead smooth job.
