  1. That's good to hear. Now, you do know about the cup sizes, right?
  2. Damn, that is tough news to read. I have some measurable loss in both ears that largely impacts certain frequencies rather hearing overall. I definitely feel for anyone suffering total loss in either or both ears.
  3. Indeed, it is. "Hi! Today we're going to check out my 1973 Marshall..."
  4. Good synopsis. Truth be told, I don't want to understand it.
  5. Thanks--I have that book with all of its drool worthy pics and verbal gymnastics. The white Scepter is in there. I was actually referring to a possible matching guitar to Dusty's red Scepter bass. If it exists, I've not seen a photo of it.
  6. I always thought that looked like something that Fred Sanford would have behind his house.
  7. I'd say that having a keys player with a legit rig up front is not nearly as annoying and clunky as having a random percussion instrument (especially a single tom or massive bass drum) up there front-and-center like some of these nauseating electro/alt pop bands like Imagine Dragons or Arcade Fire.
  8. The Book details the back story behind that white bass with the LEDs in the fretboard. The existence of this red bass suggests there is likely a matching Scepter guitar in Billy Gibbons' possession. Anyone here able to confirm that?
  9. I preach this exact sermon regularly to lots of local musicians. Thanks for being of like mind, Dave.
  10. Our drummer for the last four years retired from gigging in the Spring and our fill-in, while a great drummer, has a primary band that limits his availability. Our keys player just informed us he's hanging it up after the next three gigs. As the de facto leader and music director, I'm planning to initiate a hiatus from full-band gigs. It's typically 6-8 hours of sweat equity poured into $120-$200 paydays, and quite frankly, I feel like we're getting stale. The bassist hit his mediocre ceiling long ago, and I'm now the only guitarist, both of which limit what we can play. I do plan on working up 2-3 hours of acoustic material and doing a duo thing for a few months. Total control and no baggage. Once or twice per month is fine for me. At some point, I'll get the itch and perhaps reform an overhauled full electric band. Or maybe not. At 52, I'm content to do what I want and nothing that I don't. YMMV.
  11. Our own Willie Moseley wrote this piece on Kurt. Hell, I should have figured I'd have read about it in an old issue of VG: https://www.vintageguitar.com/15997/kurt-hendrick/
