    Do you own a llama?
    I am so close to retirement that I could play in a band full time. All I have to do is improve my playing, learn some songs, and find some other musicians more talented than me who will do exactly as they're told. .

    Hello, Dali... (yeah, I've been saving that one. )

    What was that one "choir of angels" moment when you knew you were going to play guitar?

    Tom Selleck, for sure. Plus, he drove a Ferrari. Did you know he was originally supposed to play Indiana Jones?


    Top 5 women on your F list.
    Tough question...so many to choose from...
    #1, Scarlett Johannson
    #2, Nicole Kidman
    #3, Hayden Panetierre
    #4, Jessica Biel
    #5, Gemma Atkinson



    Favorite pizza toppings?
    Cheese, pepperoni, bacon, ham. Yeah, no freakin' vegetarian here!


    Where did you grow up?
    I grew up in the hard-hitting streets of Mystic, Connecticut. Don't laugh. It was tough. Some of us had to wear Lacoste instead of Polo.


    Where did you go to college?
    I started out at Elizabethtown College in the middle of Pennsylvania. a liberal arts school tucked away between Hershey and Harrisburg. It was there that I learned how strange Pennsylvania is... and after averaging a C- (but an A+ in beer balls and girls - standard story) I transferred to Central Connecticut and became a CCSU Blue Devil. Working-class school with working-class students from working-class (or less) families. Great experience. Helped me grow up. I got my MBA from UConn.

    If you have to cross swords with one man, who would it be?
    If he were real I'd start with Anakin Skywalker. I mean, let's face it - he ordered the total obliteration of an entire planet! But, then again, he's not real so I'll say any Yankee fan.

    Do you own a llama?

    I don't own a llama, but the people down the road from us bough 20 acres of land with their house with the express intent of starting a Llama farm. They even went so far as to clear some of the land and buy a truck with "Deer Run Farms" emblazoned on it.

    Of course, they didn't check with town codes first... according to the zoning of the property they were restricted from running a commercial business on the land.

    So, undeterred, they decided to run a "Llama farm for personal use". I know that many of you have also expressed an interest in running your own Llama farm for personal enjoyment, but apparently this was just a ruse to fool the town officials! Well, the "neighborhood" (we consist of over 60 houses) decided to expose this inaccuracy to the town, and now these people have 20 acres of land that they can't use.

    Not Mass, Connecticut! You know, that red-headed stepchild who is directly south of you but, west of that ignored illegitimate, slightly "slow, love child Rhode Island.


    How many marbles can you hold in your mouth?
    Enough to make you smile. Enough to make you smile.


    Living or dead, who would you like to have a conversation with?
    Saddam Hussein so I could find out where he freakin' hid those WMDs.

    If you had to lose two fingers on your fretting hand, which two and why?
    Good lord, what kind of question is that? Wow! I'll answer this assuming that you count the thuimb as a finger. Incidentally, whyt do people not condsider the thumb as a finger? Anyway... I wouldn't want to lose my thumb because then I'd really be no better than the primates in the zoo. Need the thumb. Ok, it wouldn't be the index finger because let's face it, the index finger is the leader of the hand. Yeah, I know, the middle finger is bigger and gets the most press, but the index finger is what makes that motor run. So, I'll keep the index finger and get rid of the middle finger. The middle finger is like that oversized football player buddy you had in high school. He was helpful when trying to land girls and keep you out of fights, but you haven't talked to him in 20 years. The ring finger is key. It holds your rings, and I have it on good authority that it takes commands directly from the index finger. Let's call it "Gilligan" to the index finger's "Skipper". So, the ring finger stays. The pinky is just a pain in the ass finger. It gets broken easily. It doesn't really do what you want it to do on a guitar fretboard. It is weak and small. So, let's keep the thumb, index finger and ring finger. At the very least I will be able to play with Barre chords. Plus, I could flip around and play left-handed.

    What was that one "choir of angels" moment when you knew you were going to play guitar?


    Thanks for the question. Like many children of the early 1980s, I fell in love with the guitar after listening to 1984 by Van Halen. Before that album, I was a Huey Lewis and the News kinda kid. I became obsessed with Van Halen, and then they dumped DLR and picked up Sammy. Well, I really do think that I am in the group of people who got on the VH bandwagon just as DLR was being dumped so I wasn't really attached to him like those from the late 70s. When Sammy came on board I loved him and, in fact, probably view the two "bands" as equals.

    Any how... during the 80s, after VH, I started getting into rock and metal and listening to the back-catalogue of bands like Aerosmith, Zep, Iron Maiden, Metallica... (remember, I was 12 in 1984). I became a very competent air-guitarist and was very happy rocking out without an actual instrument.

    Many of you may agree with this statement: growing up in the late 70s/early 80s you didn't get all this "you can do anything you want" positive reinforcement that kids get today. Back then, I truly thought that if I had not been singled out by the advanced math and science teacher as an "exceptional" student yet, then I would never be something like a doctor or professor. Similiarly, if you didn't play an instrument by the age of 11 I just figured that you didn't have the "innate talent" to play a musicial instrument. Since I was never singled out for great math aptitude or musical ability, I never pursued those avenues.

    I carried that thought process with me for years - years!!! I was good at many things, but I never thought I could play an instrument. I just didn't have "it" - the God-given talent. When I turned 30 I decided to try to learn to play guitar because I freaking love it (or so I thought) and my wife encouraged me to give it a shot. So, she bought me a beginner acoustic and I took some lessons.

    Long story not quite so long... I found out that having some innate musical talent can really be useful!!! And I don't have it!! But, I did find out that you can learn to play an instrument with practice and dedication. What's more, as many of you probably know, I because very proificient in refinishing, building, fixing, and generally messing around with guitars and electronics. While I am a passable guitar player, I am very good at building and fixing guitars.

    You're flying over some distant mountains when your plane goes down. By some fluke of nature all people on the plane survived. Two part question . . . how long do you wait for rescue before resorting to cannibalism, and how do you pick who should be eaten?

    Apocalypse comes and you're short on food and trapped in your own neighborhood. Who on your street do you kill and eat first, and why?

    You are a master chef working at a busy restaurant but times are tough . . . you don't have enough money to buy meat one day, but you discover that your best waitress has accidentally been locked in the walk-in freezer and frozen to death. What cuts do you take from the carcass, and how do you season/prepare the flesh in order make it tasty enough for your diners that evening? (Remember, the more dishes you prepare, the less chance that someone will find incriminating body parts in your freezer.)

    Is it not the glory of the people of America that, whilst they have paid a decent regard to the opinions of former times and other nations, they have not suffered a blind veneration for antiquity, for custom, or for names, to overrule the suggestions of their own good sense, the knowledge of their own situation, and the lessons of their own experience?" - James Madison - Federalist #14

    If you could have one each of any guitar/amp/pedal and these three would be all you'd have for the rest of your life, which three?

    You're flying over some distant mountains when your plane goes down. By some fluke of nature all people on the plane survived. Two part question . . . how long do you wait for rescue before resorting to cannibalism, and how do you pick who should be eaten?

    Steve, you're a weird dude for a guy that looks pretty normal.

    So, how long do we run out of food? Are we so inept that none of us can find food? Are these mountains so high that it is freezing weather? Do we have water?

    As a recent graduate of the University of "Lost", clearly we need to find fresh water first. Given how things played out, we need to make sure that no-one eats Hurley (even though he would be the most likely candidate to be eaten) because he'll need to run the mountains when we all leave.

    Given that we are in a remote part of the world, likely in poor weather conditions, I think I'd try to wait until someone dies and then eat them.

    But, I did just read "Unbroken" and those two dudes lasted like 40 days in the middle of the ocean with no water or food, so I think it would take a least 20 days before I resorted to eating a person.


    Apocalypse comes and you're short on food and trapped in your own neighborhood. Who on your street do you kill and eat first, and why?

    You guys don't know anyone on my street so you'd have no idea who I was talking about. Plus, I run a kick-ass garden on my property so I think we'd be ok.

    You are a master chef working at a busy restaurant but times are tough . . . you don't have enough money to buy meat one day, but you discover that your best waitress has accidentally been locked in the walk-in freezer and frozen to death. What cuts do you take from the carcass, and how do you season/prepare the flesh in order make it tasty enough for your diners that evening? (Remember, the more dishes you prepare, the less chance that someone will find incriminating body parts in your freezer.)


    Steve, What the ****?!?!

    Seriously, if I work at a busy restaurant wouldn't it be easier (and less likely for me to end up in Hell) to just steal some food from the meat locker than to hack up my best waitress? This scenario is so far-fetched. Geez, it's not a plausible scenario like being lost in the mountains after a plane crash, or finding myself trapped in my neighborhood.
