    I get the feeling that it might be more fun to hang out with Setzer when he is out of character than when he is performing. Like a few other artists, some of his work makes my jaw drop in awe, and some of it I don't care for at all. I sure wish I had his chops, though!

    A sales engineer at an online shop where I bought my Setzer 6120 told me a story. Seems that he had some connections and got to hang out with Setzer after a concert. They passed around an acoustic guitar and the sales-guy thinks, "Oh boy, I'm going to show him some stuff now!". Then Setzer takes his turn and does some mind-blowing unbelievable playing. When the guitar gets to sales-guy he says, "Hell no, I'm a drummer" and passes.

    Never heard of Setzer? I guess that’s ok.
    A buddy of mine told me the story of someone with several Gibson LPs on his wall(I seem to recall about 10 or 20!). Apparently the guy can’t play a single note. He likes them as... art objects.
