Gary Hoey digs #5 😁

WBPS#5 made a "Special" stop today .... to Paul Hamer's House!

I cannot discuss those things and the Wylbil Special has been sworn to secrecy,,, though I think I saw it swipe some heavy metal off of our lab table. Besides myself, W.S. (Wyldbil Special) got to me

That sounds like something you should do with that guitar.

We can send it to someone in the Chicago area after that for McChris and The Rub on the 24th then.

Yeah, if I could get it in time for that, awesome. Another guaranteed public appearance!

The shows went great (we set another attendance record in Toledo/Maumee) :)

This guitar is SO much fun to play! Anyone who still on the fence about spending some time with it should get in line for delivery! The neck reminds me of the earliest SG/Les Pauls - which is pretty typical for old Specials. I used a couple "off brand" guitars along with it that don't have shreddish necks, to make transitions painless.

The pictures are starting to trickle in - I've been promised many more, and a video or two, as well (I'll post more as they appear).

Gig One (Lazy Chameleon, Powell, Ohio):

Gig Two (Indian Lake Festival) - friends of the band - stage pictures on the way...

Hoping to do it some sorta justice if/when it makes it to the west coast!

This is a great idea.

Raised On Radio gig in Itasca, Illinois September 5th. I'd surely rock it, if it's in Chicago area.

The WBPS#5 is here, and it's a CLUB!

Looking forward to getting weird with it on Sunday!

I love clubs. Don't leave before I get there. Should be at the show by 6:30-ish. May bring the fam' as it's 'all ages'.

Not on me. But it was fuggin' hot, man. Dripped my DNA allover the WBS#5.

I'm actually impressed that the guys in the core band are all on board with the NSOS rule. Can't control what the guests do.

It was fuggin' hot! I promise to follow the NSOS rule from now on - just having an Angus Young moment i guess ....

Seriously - that was a lot of fun! Thanks MCChris!

Nah, you had the right idea. I was a sweaty mess....even more than usual!

Glad you could make it. "Stranglehold" and "What Is and What Should Never Be" teases are always welcome!

The WBS#5 really brought out the "rock" in all of us. I'm sure Bil was smiling.

I'm laughing because we had an outdoor gig on Saturday... At noon. The sax player an i weer the only two that honored the NSoS law.

And i was a wet smelly mess when it was over... :wacko:

so awesome.

idea. Wyldbil's skull and crossbones is unique. The smile and the bones crossing behind the skull is closest to the pirate Richard Worley. they were a straight X though, and looked different. (only looked at 15 though)

Is there a tribute logo that can raise funds for his girl or his website? Wyldbil under unique pirate skull-and-crossbones is cool.
