    RIP Nichelle Nichols

    I was really saddened to hear it, although I knew it was coming sooner rather than later, in all likelihood....I knew she hadn't been well...and I know there had been some legal fighting regarding her money, etc.... awful stuff. Star Trek was one of my primary happy memories as a young...

    Another 6 month "Thumb's Up" from Oncology Dr!

    I get to have oncology blood labs and CT Scans every 6 months....which means I start getting nervous and antsy every FIVE months...lol. This marked the completion of 3 years....and I'm so excited I'm telling EVERYONE...lol...I'll probably never get over the nervousness and nail biting...

    Shoe culture in the United States?

    Once I put carpeting in my house, shoes came off...and that goes for anyone that comes in. I do wear slippers sometimes, but as they don't ever go outside, they're ok...

    What is the Great Gretsch Sound to you?

    When growing up, I probably heard a ton of Gretsch's being played on songs....but I didn't know enough to realize it....and it wasn't until around 1981 or 82 that I SAW my first Gretsch from a band I immediately idolized (Stray Cats).....so for me, "The Great Gretsch Sound" always equated to...

    Shipping has gotten expensive...

    That seems like a bit much....but, shipping things HAS gotten pricey.....Recently, I was going to ship some items to my sister that had been my mother's.....The items.....maybe worth 2-300 dollars (guessing).....To ship them to California was going to cost over $400......I texted my sister, and...

    Ideal Concert Length

    It varies......assuming no opening act, and it's not one of these tours where there are multiple headliners (ie Poison, Motley Crue, Def Leppard).....I think 90 minutes to 2 hours is probably a good length......but, some bands I could certainly enjoy a 3 hour show from......and if I wanted less...

    What's your ideal song time length?

    Years ago, I always wanted to write that.....magnum opus song.....the "Thick as a Brick" ala Tull, or more realistically, "Stairway to Heaven" ala Zep, or "The End" ala Doors..... But....lately, whether it's recording covers with a friend, or playing for some folks......I prefer ridiculously...

    If I had a time machine

    1) I'd go back to the 60s, and tell my Dad to start getting colonoscopies starting at 40 and every 3-5 years after. 2) I'd make a quick pitstop in the 80's to tell myself to study harder in college (and pick a major I actually have an interest in), and buy as much Amazon stock as possible as...

    NBGD: New Blue Guitar Day

    That's a sharp guitar.....a shame about the problems...but, it seems like workmanship isn't anyone's top priority anymore.....at least you had someone close by who could fix all the issues! Now get to playing! ;-)

    I am so fed-up from other people carelessly demolishing my gear

    I believe it was Benjamin Franklin (or maybe it was PeeWee Herman) who said "Neither a borrower nor a lender be" I never loan out anything.....for exactly the reason you say. And I never borrow anything gear related because I worry about damaging the item.

    Happy 80th Birthday, Macca!

    He's one of the very few that I (probably) WOULD pay the exorbitant ticket price to see....Happy 80th and hopefully many more

    Curious on gear theft

    I'm just curious..... how many folks here have had gear stolen or "mysteriously disappear" at a gig or practice? I've never personally had it happen....but, I've heard other people mention stuff going missing in the past. (Granted, I wouldn't probably bring a super expensive guitar to play at...

    RIP Ray Liotta

    This really bummed me out when I heard....always liked Ray Liotta....Goodfellas is one of my top 3 or 4 movies of all time....and I enjoyed his roles in several other films (No one ever seems to talk about "Copland", but top flight cast, and Ray's part was memorable). Still young...

    Amps, how many is too many?

    If you can afford them without having to sacrifice necessities for your family, and you have the space to put them.....then you're good to go. ;-)

    Foo Fighters

    Was really surprised to hear it, this morning. Seemed like a good guy, and was a highly talented rock drummer. Too young.

    Low E Buzz

    Exactly....do whatever it takes for you to be able to play.....look at Tony Iommi.....cut the tips of his fingers off in an accident......figured out how to make "fake fingertips" and then tuned down to C# so that it didn't hurt....and it gave them a whole new sound. Django Reindhart was...
