  1. That guitar looks great, and I hope you think of that guitar as a necessity instead of buying too much last year.
  2. Steve Harris has been determined to make shorts work in a heavy metal setting. I still prefer the spandex version of Steve Harris.
  3. There was no second wave of presents under the tree. This year sucks already.
  4. I think a friend has a deal with her husband that if she gets a chance to have a fling with Paul Stanley she can go ahead.
  5. I have my doubts the Osmonds really made people go out and buy Marshalls. Donnie Osmond can actually sing music that could be hard rock or metal, but his image prevented him from ever being able to do that.
  6. Be careful about connecting performers with brands based on old videos. Sometimes the guitars and amps were provided by a television she's production crew. Bands came in and used what was set up for them. Concert videos are more reliable.
  7. If you needed a Jackson, you needed a Jackson. Rock on.
  8. How is your speech? Remember Matt Mattson used a guitar to get back some control after having a stroke.
  9. I remember working a Bill Wharton and The Ingredients show. He had a giant pot of gumbo cooking from the start to finish. At the end of the show everyone in the audience got a cup of gumbo. The music was good, and the cooking put the show over the top.
  10. Yup. Hardly anyone bought tickets, so they made that the night for their annual fundraiser silent auction to get more people to show up.
  11. If you are going to dress in period clothing you need to have the hair and facial expression to go with it. There was an entire demeanor that went with the clothing styles of the past. If you have not had a blues name through this point, just keep your name as is. Cool names like Bleeding Gums Murphy have their place. Hard Hearted Bill still works. It actually makes one wonder what experiences made you hard hearted. If you want to play a resonator or a modern guitar to play old music, it is OK. Leon Redbone was playing a 50s Gibson to play his 10s, 20s, 30s music. While I wou
  12. I wanted to look up information on Molly Hatchet and ran across a TGP thread that was a mix of useful information and slams on the players in Molly Hatchet. "Their licks were good for a beginner to learn from, but I quickly excelled to become a genuine virtuoso who can look down upon the inadequacies of Molly Hatchet's 'guitar players' if one could consider them able to play in the first place." My opinion was that everything sounded right on those Molly Hatchet albums, and it certainly was and is above my skill level. If I let braggarts on the Internet control what I can like and
  13. The venues that are getting priority would be large sheds and concert halls that do not have bars or restaurants. LiveNation will be cashing in. No shows at the pavilion all summer is a sure guarantee to meet that 70 - 90% loss in revenue. Some small venues have gone to patio shows-- acoustic duos playing outside for people who will eat and drink outside during the months with nicer weather. They likely have experienced the 25% drop just because of the total shutdowns in some cities. I am no fan of LiveNation or municipal/county owned venues. Local staff is paid on an as-needed
  14. The thicker cuts taste best to me. Fry some and try some. You will thank Wyldbil.
  15. Ho. I will reserve the other two ho's for whether or not I get a lot of presents this year.
  16. Sweetwater has a feature on their website for listing used gear. Right now it is free. It also a wild west situation with no buyer/seller protection. https://www.sweetwater.com/used/how-it-works
  17. Have you tried getting rid of some furniture? A chair takes the same area on the floor as a 4 x 12" cabinet. Which one matters more to you?
  18. Hameritis is a finish separation around the neck joint or along the edges of the fretboard. It most often shows up on guitars from the 90s.
  19. You cannot have too many guitars. You cannot have too many amps, especially Marshalls and Marshall-based amps.
