    Jerry Lee anecdote: many years ago he and his crew stopped in a backwater gas station. Inside he found a rack of bootleg tapes of his music. Jerry Lee tore down the rack and stomped on all the illegal merch. When the attendent screamed, "What am I supposed to do now???!!!", Jerry Lee said, "Tell ‘em Killer was here", and walked out. Essence of cool. Always the essence of cool.

    Playing a roots gig next weekend and I’m reminded that all one really needs is a guitar, amp, and a Mystery Brain. That’s it.

    Very nice!

    At one point I was casting about for a leopard print strap but couldn't find one I liked. Who made that one?

    Really cool! It is definitely good that you now have the signings protected.
    I have a candy apple red James Burton signature. The neck is really a super nice shape and thickness. Those came
    factory with US Texas special pickups. I remember reading that James had a lot of input on the design and features.

    A bengal cat. The dots give it away... Or is it one of the Pantherae?

    Doesn't purr, but makes noise.

    Love it!
