An enema, surrounded by a monastery, wrapped in a condom.
If my wife and I were ever to start another business, I would love to own an upscale Cigar Shop and Smoking Lounge/Bar. Cigars are my other true passion besides guitar, and I know quite a bit about it. That would be something that I wouldn't consider a job....it would be fun to go to work every day. I'm good with people and I'm a good salesman, so I know it would succeed.

Choose your weapons, sir.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
I thought you were around when the well was started up. Must have been set up just after you had to move.
To date, I've been a standby well recipient once. I guess I'm just not a vibrant enough character to get the nod. [slowly plods away weeping] LOL.
Amp - JCM 800 2205, full stack, loaded with a combination of GT12-75's and V30's. Amp modded by Jeff Seal just like the one I had to sell a few years back.
Pedal - I'm not a huge pedal guy, so and old Boss CE-2 to thicken up and help clean tones. If there was a pedal that had Chorus and Delay in one pedal, that would be great. All the gain I need comes from the amp.

I'll also need a lifetime supply of Diet 7up and an ice machine.
Pump that air! What sort of mods?Amp - JCM 800 2205, full stack, loaded with a combination of GT12-75's and V30's. Amp modded by Jeff Seal just like the one I had to sell a few years back.

Say you win $10 million in the lottery, what are the first 5 things you do?
As far as your rig is concerned, describe your favorite sound that you get from it.
If you were given an unlimited budget to go on holiday, but could only go to one place, where would you go?
Still no correct answer provided yet by the well inhabitants ... Who'd win in a wrestling match, Lemmy or God?
And for the record I nominate Gr8Scott for the next. I won't comment on his vibrantness.
I asked for the gain channel to go anywhere from JTM/Plexi breakup at the low end all the way up through modded JCM 800 80's tones and into Silver Jubilee territory. He delivered in spades. The gain channel was very, very quiet and just by adjusting the gain knob I was able to dial in almost any Marshall flavor I wanted. He also added a pseudo 3rd channel that I could access via a push/pull on the gain knob I believe. It went into seriously high gain/new metal sounds.....but was a bit noisy.
He did all of this without additional tubes or controls drilled into the amp. I ran Svetlana Winged C EL34's with an array of NOS pre-amp tubes including Bugle Boy, RFT and GE Blackplate. Interestingly enough, at that time the new Groove Tubes 12AX7-C's were good enough to make me take out all but 2 NOS pre-amp tubes and save them for later use. Not sure GT is as good any longer.
Jeff does fantastic work with 2 channel Marshalls, and I will have another 2205 modded by him in the future. I just don't need the headroom of a 2210, I like the earlier breakup of the 50 watters.
I originally hurt my back the day after Thanksgiving, 2006, unloading my daughters suitcase from the trunk. I just felt something snap when I lifted it out of the trunk. Put me flat on my back. 3-4 days later I was trying to hobble down the stairs to get something from the kitchen and I tripped over a dog toy and fell down the remaining flight of stairs. That cemented my back problem.
It's been constant back and leg pain from that point until today. The only thing that makes it better is Oxycontin or Morphine, and I refuse to go back on those meds again, even if Dr. prescribed again. I'm learning to just tough it out and looking for alternate therapies.

About Last Night
Ideal Pizza - Simple. New York Pizza, super thin crust. Baked in a 100 year old dirty pizza oven. Plain cheese is just fine, but if I have to choose just one topping...pepperoni (and extra cheese). Fold it in half, eat and let the grease run down my chin.
Oreo Cookie - I generally don't because I am diabetic. However, when I do I split it in half, eat the dry side first and then eat the side with the center. I do not lick all of the center off, but sometimes will take a portion of it first. Must have milk.
$10M Lottery Win -
1. Put $5M in investments for the future.
2. Buy a nice house, but probably not a million dollar mansion. At least not now.
3. Buy my Dad a house anywhere he wanted....anything he wanted and set him up for life.
4. Buy my sister and her family the house they have always dreamed of.
5. Re-build my guitar/amp collection. Get a 2205 again, see above. Buy a couple of nice Lesters, a USA Dean Hardtail and a Taylor Acoustic. I don't need a ton.
Current Favorite Rig Sound - don't have an amp currently, so no sound. My favorite sound from my former rig was a Les Paul or Dean Hardtail on the crunch channel of my Marshall. Enough gain to play AC/DC through GNR. Not a ton of difference in the gain between those two. Just a nice, crunchy, throaty Marshall growl through a 4x12.
Holiday anywhere in the world/unlimited budget: Does Europe count as one place? I'd love to take the train through all the countries of Europe and see all the history. If I had to pick one place.....Ireland.
Lemmy or God in a cage match: I have to give the initial edge to Lemmy as he is seemingly indestructible, but after a long and bloody battle, God wins out in the end. He has even more endurance than Lemmy, and he is Omnipotent after all. I am a believer.
