    Best and worst subjects in school.
    Best - English. Worst - Math.


    If the president told you, you could kill any person on the planet, and have complete immunity from prosecution, who would you kill and why?

    Hugo Chavez, the Pres. of Venezuela. Not to get political, but he's the biggest threat to democracy in Central America. He, and whoever gets control of Cuba.


    I feel that paparazzi photographers and 'journalists' should be forced to have one nostril super-glued shut for life. Do you agree?

    I think they should have a big P or J branded into their foreheads with a cattle iron.

    I can't change the stations fast enough when either of those 2 come on.
    However, if 'We Built this City' by Starship came on, I'd probably listen intently and laugh to myself....just for campy nostalgia sake! LOL

    Both. Even stoned, I don't think anyone could write worse lyrics than 'I shot the Sheriff, but I did not shoot the duputy."

    I've thought about learning all the Clapton hits, and going out as a Clapton tribute, just to make money in Vegas, but the problem is that I'd flat out refuse to play that song! hahahaha

    You could still do that, and when somebody asked you to play that song, you could change the lyrics to something like, "You're such a ******bag, coz you want to hear this dumbass song...."

    yeah.

    I saw a John Couger Mellencamp punk rock cover band once. They were called 'John Cougar Concentration Camp!" hahahaha They played his songs with barre chords and changed the lyrics to be more brutal! hahahaha

    What guitar player would you most like to hang and jam with?

    What type of stuff is the new band doing, stylistically, and where do you see it going if anywhere?

    What's your favourite sounding note on the guitar, and in which position?
    I had to pick up my guitar to figure it out, because I've never thought about it.
    I like the E, at the 7th fret A string. There's so much you can milk out of that note. If the guitar were a human body, that note would be the neck.

    (1) say I was a burglar that got past the electrified razor wire, landmines, shotgun and guard dog,which amp and cab would you not want me to take. The Bogner or Silver Jubilee ?
    Neither. I would have stabbed ya! I can't lose the Bogner. The Jube is more of a fun collectible.

    (2) what kind of beer do you mostly keep in the fridge ?
    I found a cool grocery store that must cater to every ethnicity, because they stock the best beers from most countries. For the same price as Budweiser, I can fill up a box with single pint size bottles of every variety. It makes beer drinking an adventure, since every bottle in my fridge is a different brand. Usually, they're good, but I've had a few nasty ones go right into the garbage on very rare occasion.

    (3) what liquor do you have right now ?
    None right now. I'm trying to stay away from liquor, just because I can hardly function when it's around. Plus, those German, English, and Russian beers do a good job on their own.

    What guitar player would you most like to hang and jam with?
    Joe Walsh. I'd love to spend a whole day hanging out with and playing guitar with Joe Walsh.

    What type of stuff is the new band doing, stylistically, and where do you see it going if anywhere?
    Sort of a modern and unique blues rock band...sorta like dropping Joe Bonamassa into Faith No More. Where it goes, nobody knows, but I always like being part of a longterm band, as well as doing more 'jam-like' stuff on the side. For the past few years, I've been too inactive, and it's getting to me.

    Why wasn't this thread posted tomorrow..? It is once a week right?

    I'm sorry about that. I think Ratherdashing ended his a few days short, and passed me the torch. Instead of waiting till Sunday, I jumped the gun.

    Hey, but at least you've got a host that's on top of all the questions!

    What advice would you give for those looking to build their guitar/gear collection? Is it always best to go for what has the most resale per dollar spent, or is it better to go with smaller things like pickups and pedals, since cheap things are much more likely to sell than say a mid level amp or guitar.

    More importantly, how do you weigh situations where you would have to sell great gear that you love to afford a great deal? In other words, when does gaining money on a trade take a back seat to one of 'your gems'

    One thing you notice, when buying and selling gear is that there's modern classics as well as vintage classics. Then there's a lot of budget gear that's timely, and therefore doesn't hold value. You always want to own and buy the pieces that you KNOW will continue to be desireable by the guitar community as a whole. To buy a midline piece new, when you can spend the same on a used high end piece, is a HUGE mistake people make.

    I'm a player, first and foremost, so I really own the stuff I like to use, but the more gear you go through, the more you realize that the classics are the best. I've gone through a lot of timely gear, and lost my shirt everytime I went to sell and trade up. So, I made sure I was only spending my money on highend gear that people were letting go of, taking a big loss.

    NEVER assume you can't afford something. I don't know why people act like good gear is unattainable. It is out there on the used market, and if you don't have the cash, just sell your least favorites. Stop being sentimental about mediocre gear. Thing of them as playing cards. I assure you...you won't miss a mediocre guitar with sentimental value, the minute you bring home a killer new one. All that sentiment will fall right onto the new guitar!

    The current gear that I think will be collectible in the future is...
    All 90's Gibson Historics and Fender Custom Shops, as well as the best standard US models from both companies. Cool rare stuff is always a good bet. Or, models that hit the nail on the head like the new Hot Rod 62 and 52, as well as the EJ model.
    PRS Guitars
    Martin Acoustics
    Taylor Acoustics
    Most tube Marshalls
    Fender Custom Shop amps
    Fulltone, Way Huge, Klon, EH, HBE, Keeley, Moog, Analog Man, T Rex, Teese etc.
    Matchless, Soldano, Bogner, Dr. Z, Diezel, Krank, 5150's, Eden, 65 Amps, Top Hat, rare Mesa models, etc. Enjoy this period of great amps, because for collectibility, it may prove to be the goldmine. When choosing boutiques, pick the popular ones, since everyone will know what it is 20 years from now.

    You recently mentioned the pains of addiction and sliding and picking yourself back up,what is the main thing that helps keep you clean and clean-up when you slide?
    Waking up, looking in the mirror, and thinking that life moves on with or without you. There's comes a time, when you've got to completely change your routine.
    I know I've got some serious things coming up on the horizon, so scaling back the leisure time is one thing that has to be done.
