  1. A lot of the bands in the 60s were teenagers, so many of them are the same age as the guys who made it in the 70s.
  2. I have been aware of them for at least 10 years, too. There is a CD around here somewhere.
  3. I like stainless steel binding with nibs. Ducking.
  4. The early stuff was an entirely different kind of songwriting than what was to come. The riffs drove the song. Ace just did whatever he wanted. It was great.
  5. Note made: Put Swords and Tequila in my next cover band's setlist.
  6. That article apparently was written ten years ago and "reprinted" this week. I saw Riot supporting Narita and Fire Down Under, and thought they were great all through high school. It turns out the last time I saw them was 11 days before Guy Speranza quit. Watching a video of a complete Riot club show from 1981 there was something different from the way I remembered them. The albums were great, so seeing the band play music from those albums in concert was exciting. The video-- not so much. In the article Sandy Slavin comes across as not wanting the band to be about a show as mu
  7. Do not forget that Manson was married to Rose McGowan, an endless victim in Hollywood. You might have to wonder if all of these women have the same personality traits, and if they do they likely were attracted to him for the same reasons. Manson also has a fault of picking women with poor judgment. What did they expect from a guy who created the image of Marilyn Manson? One by one Manson's band members left him to back Rob Zombie.
  8. I liked every song on the album the first time I heard it.
  9. A major Thin Lizzy fan told me that it was a Colorsound wah pedal.
  10. I have heard Norah Jones enough to understand why she is successful, but I do not regularly listen to her music.
  11. If your guitar is that much of a worry you just need to sell it and not have it nagging at you. I will buy it off you right now, as a friend looking out for a friend. Considering the current condition I am willing to go as high as $350.
  12. Thumbprint inlays... hmmm... That knot could be covered with a G brand or a kjq equivalent. Problem solved. Then there is an inlay of a dolphin... A medallion embedded into the wood... A monkey grip style handle... A Mercedes hood ornament... Solid finish... Just leave it as is and let someone play the guitar to find out if the knot really matters.
  13. Aluminum neck. Stainless steel frets. Brass nut. You realize a metal pick killed Eddie Van Halen, don't you?
  14. Who figures out which songs fit on top of one another? This works out way too well.
  15. If it was Rick Nielsen on his checkerboard John Deere riding lawnmower that would be cool.
  16. Are the chunks of wood cut from the body included in the case?
  17. Frets are like brake rotors and drums. They wear out. Binding nibs will get shorter as frets are leveled, too, so they are going to go away one day.
  18. I wish I could see a Cheap Trick headlining show. They still have to fulfill dates opening for Rod Stewart this year.
  19. Get it fixed. Over time it will get more annoying. I have seen a decades old guitar have binding shrink enough to get a fingertip between the binding and the wood. Your daughter's Martin may not get that bad, but that shrinkage is bad enough. Martin may have an approved repair center nearby. A local repairman may be able to do something for you cheaper than shipping the guitar off. Get it fixed.
  20. Mar-TEEN-ez or Mar-ti-NEZ? It depends on where you are from. Puerto Ricans go with the first one. You might hear the other in Mexico. So, Ibanez may have regional pronunciations as well.
  21. Add in Tom Toomey of The Zombies. http://tomtoomey.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/cropped-TOM-TOOMEY-NEW-WEBSITE-COVER-OCT-2020-2.0.jpg
  22. We bought gear, sold gear, talked about banned members, and bought and sold more gear.
