Wyldbil Pirate Special #5


Recommended Posts

^^^^

As per "exposing yourself to art" in Portland. (And, yes, that is a former Mayor of Portland in the raincoat). It is not for nothing that a favorite bumper sticker in the City is "Keep Portland Weird".

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

Finally, Portland ripped us off instead of the other way around.

Hot dang! Now we get photos of the guitar with showgirls!

If it was in Houston another couple of days I was gonna use it in a photo shoot with a nude female model, but alas twas not to be.

If it ever makes it back to NC and into my hands, I will make a special trip to my alma mater to hang it over this guy's shoulders for a nice photo op:

Okay, I laughed. You beat me to a funny idea I had, but I deserve it.

It's here, safely with me. I'm trying to arrange a photo release from the Army, but it's not looking good. Fingers are crossed though. I should know soon.

Hey guys--I've been here a few years and seen a bit about Wyldbil. Can you share some history about Bill for those of us who didn't know him? I've seen a post about this guitar making a tour last year, I think. I love the idea and would be honored to carry the spirit of your beloved friend to a jam here in upstate NY. Perhaps at a jam at Arlo Guthries church not to far from here, or a local open mike. Happy to carry the torch for your beloved departed and pass it on.

This is the same thread. I saw your reply before but the guitar was headed West at the time and has made it's way to Arizona at the moment with Feynman. I have a plan to send it Cali way next followed by a West coast fling and then turn it back through through the Midwest and to the Northeast before a run back South to me again. It has been out there since March of 2014 with HFCers. Pages 14- 15 have some great videos and photos. We need more!

Wyldbil is HFC Hall of Fame. B)

Ha - the wall switch labels are from my daughters - the left one says "Don't Touch!" They kept forgetting and shutting off important things I had plugged in to a switched outlet. I have long since moved all of those things to their own dedicated circuit, but I left the labels there since they went to the trouble of making them.

Dem gals rok! May their Christmas be Pez (candy), hugs and rock and roll.

I had a conversation with Greg G who told me the story about the guitar, the Elvis impersonator, Vegas, etc. Sounds like a good guy, even IF he seems to have tended to move on from Hamers. -_-
