    Neil Young did some weird stuff in the 80s ...

    I once waited for my dog at the vets while neil waited for his dog. it was about 1978 in the spring... we talked quietly, he was interesting and nice and a much larger man (over 6') than I expected. I was just a kid (18) then... I saw him on several tours... sometimes he was outstanding...

    Statistical analysis of music trends (The Economist)

    on the radio, there was great new music on up until about 1978. After that... it has waned considerably. That is how I correctly interpret that graph.

    How did you find " Gretsch-Talk " ?

    It was 4th of July in Prescott in about 1980... a band was playing in a bar near a HUGE pile of guns (you had to check weapons at the door) and this cat was just killing it on a white falcon.... I dreamt of that guitar for years... I was (and am) a mod on the tdpri and when I started hunting...

    Way Huge Aqua Puss

    not a big aquapuss fan. I've had one a couple of years and it never makes it to the gig.. I have finally decided to just do the Vince Gill thing and get two dd3's and be done with the short and long need... I tried a bunch of different pedals and keep coming back to the dd3

    Coffee Connoisseurs in the house?

    Oh, I like starbucks just fine. I find that their pikes place roast is consistent and very good. It is very different from what I brew, but I like it and it is reasonably priced. I get 20 oz for 2.10 which where I live is very inexpensive. I don't drink much 'fancy coffee' but, I know that...

    you are referring to the Parsons Green mechanism licensed to fender. It is a much heavier and less versatile unit than the Parsons White. As for Page's les paul, I'll bet it was nearly a net zero weight difference between the heavier, denser wood being routed and the mechanicals being fitted.

    my main guitar is a pine tele I built, it has a parsons white bender in it. It is fairly light (because I started with a one piece pine body) It is one of those things that just becomes a tool and a flavor and just kind of shows up after awhile... there are several flavors of bender... so...
