  1. Lynyrd Skynyrd after the crash had most of its members, but it has been nearly 30 years since that time. Not many bands stay together with the original members that long. When we are talking about success are we talking about bands "in their day" or an overall career? We have been throwing out names of bands that have had empty years and bands that have never stopped. I do not like the Eagles, but they are for the most part intact from their heyday. Their music has remained popular. KISS has never broken up. They have had ups and downs but they still plug away. Aerosmith is still the o
  2. The Eagles are probably the most successful American rock band although not all of their music would be considered rock.
  3. If anyone attending the NAMM show has Internet access I'd like a little heads up on what's happening.
  4. lemme guess A you're a lousy singer B you're a good singer, but you're guitar playing is even better C As a young kid you ate some deep fried white spotted owl and got a neckbone lodged in your throat and severed a vocal cord, permanently rendering you as a terrible singer. I'm going with B. I've heard Bill sing. He should do more singing, but he won't.
  5. I could never afford the TC Electronic 2290 which seemed to be the obligatory delay unit for all "serious" players in the 80's. With all the rack gear, it made me wonder what the amp heads were for. I must agree with the previous statement that the Peavey 5150 or the newer 6505 series have the 80's sound built in.
  6. A sunburst back is something that I think only looks right on an arched back. On a flat back it doesn't seem right to me. However, some people like that sunburst on the back.
  7. That guitar sums up what beautiful can mean! It looks sooo right!
  8. Comic book and science fiction conventions started this way.
  9. I want a free T-shirt. ...I'll pay if I have to...
  10. Today's emo kids certainly buy their pants there. What the heck is "emo"? I keep seeing that phrase used to describe clothing on eBay. I think Vai's shirts may be big name designer shirts in the $700+ range. Sometimes you just run across cool stuff. Go to a store that sells biker boots and you will see some odd ones that look like Mad Max meets Judas Priest. It also helps if you can have someone make your clothing. Sometimes it is cheaper than you think. A lady who made clothes for Kurt Russell and Sam Elliott in Tombstone made a vest for me for $50.
  11. Unless there are too many nicks and dings that show up from a distance, keep the original finish on that one.
  12. It would depend on how much wood is in the neck joint area. Just how much of the Monaco is hollow? Does it have a center section like the Newport? I have only seen the LP style Monaco.
  13. Well, then, can we argue over the non-traditional truss rod cover? Actually I like the headstock and the truss rod cover, but we know that for some people only a Gibson headstock is good enough.
  14. A friend let me take home a Byrdland one night. The friend loves jazz and Chet Atkins. I wanted to see what the Byrd could do. I tried it for its intended purpose and then I cranked the amp. We know that ten different people can play the same guitar and each person will get his own sound. That being said, the Byrdland is a BIG part of Ted Nugent's tone.
  15. Let me get this straight... The guy dumped the guitar because it did not have a one piece neck or body? I know someone who will tell you that Hamers play and sound wonderful, but he cannot own one because he has to have a one piece neck. Tone and feel mean nothing unless the construction methods used meet his approval. I also know someone else who owns a '79 Les Paul Custom with a sandwich body and a multi-piece maple neck that sounds and feels incredible. That guitar is not supposed to be as cool as it is, but it helps to debunk theories about guitar construction being good or bad based o
