    As far as hype...for me...the Fulltone OCD. It didn't play well with others for sure and i play through a Fender voiced amp...i feel like it's really geared towards Marshall voiced amps. The Catalinbread DLS is soooo much better to me...not even close...of course that's all imho!

    Hmmm...the ticket could probably be negotiated in Strats!

    Thanks man! I got the impression you were the drummer and the singer was someone else. Gives us a little insight into who you are, being able to give yourself a little rip there.

    Why did you choose the user name Hoss? Don't most guys in your area of the world get called Hoss, Bubba, Slim or something similar?

    Nissan or Toyota?
    Tomato or Tomato?

    If you had a tragic accident that severely limited the use use of your fretting hand, would you concentrate of slide or would you work to play other handed?

    How old were you when you had your greatest life altering experience?

    Did you know my mother went to college with Dan Blocker?

    Do you have a college degree ...... and if so, in what discipline?

    On a scale from one to ten how would you rate yourself as a guitarist ..... B .... B+?
    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. .

    What enrages you?

    What settles you down?
    If you had to kill one person, who would it be? and why? They just killed him a few days ago although i hear his burial at sea was demeaning...yeah so was 9/11.

    What's the most important thing in your life? Yikes...all the forbidden topics in here! haha! That's easy...not even a second thought...My personal relationship with Jesus Christ is the single most important thing in my life.

    Most important person? I gotta go with 2 here...My wife Brenda and my daughter Julia...i'm the luckiest dude in the world...to be called husband and father.

    If I gave you the choice to be fabulously wealthy, amazingly talented, and a total chick magnet, and somehow, you retain all your friends, but the catch is that you must sever all ties to your existing family, and you cannot ever have a family ever again, would you do it? Hahaha...i already have wealth beyond monetary measure. I have all the talents that God has gifted me with. I'm still a chick magnet...i get chicken stuck between my teeth every single time i eat chinese food! I spend 99.99% of every moment of my life that i'm not at work with my family...they are part of the wealth i already spoke of.

    What enrages you? Crimes against children. I can't hardly stand to even think about it!

    What settles you down? No matter how mad...no matter how furious i am...no matter what it's about...one smile from my wife breaks down any and all armor and walls i can put up...i melt.

    hahah...i can rip on me with the best of them! i have no visions of grandeur!

    i love music...love what makes it...the emotions...the ability to convey what you feel inside with people who "get it".

    i'm a total hack on the guitar...but i get by. i tend to improve when i play with people who are better than me pretty quick...sadly...really sadly (haha) i'm currently the best musician in the band at my church...so while i've been more creative in the other areas of music (writing/arranging) my actually playing skills have been at a stand still for quite some time.

    i've been called Hoss since i was a little kid...my last name is Hoskins...i guess i eventually and unfortunately (depending on how you look at it) grew into the name in a "roundabout" way...hahah!

    Nissan or Toyota? Dodge , seriously though...i'd go with Toyota. I almost bought a Tacoma once.

    Tomato or Tomato? It all makes Salsa and Sauce...i'll take either or is it either?

    If you had a tragic accident that severely limited the use use of your fretting hand, would you concentrate of slide or would you work to play other handed? Hmm...never thought about that one? I'd probably try slide?!

    How old were you when you had your greatest life altering experience? 4 years young. I was stung by a wasp inside the nose and then rushed to a nearby dr's office...they quickly realized i was severly allergic to the sting...however they didn't know i was also going to be allergic to the medicine they would give me to treat it. I was in a coma and on life support for 7 months...they thought that my fever had reached such a height that i was more than likely brain damaged beyond repair. My mom and dad's insurance wouldn't pay for the life support any longer. The night before they were going to pull the plug on me, my mother knelt beside my bed and told God that i was in His hands...and that she was at peace with whatever He decided. I woke up 10 minutes before they were scheduled to let me go the next morning. I'm still trying to figure out why i was spared...and i'm doing my best with my second chance! I may mess up all the time...but i'll NEVER stop trying!

    Did you know my mother went to college with Dan Blocker? Nope, but that doesn't surprise me, because i have no idea who Dan Blocker is...haha!

    Do you have a college degree ...... and if so, in what discipline? Ahhh...another bad taste in my mouth...haha! I went for 3 years as a Religion/Theology Major. It was really a 5 or 6 year degree that i tried like crazy to complete in 4. I took 20-25 hours a semester, and while i could hack it my freshman and first part of my sophmore year, when i started taking the more advanced classes...i burned myself out sooooo bad that i've never really recovered from it to this day!

    On a scale from one to ten how would you rate yourself as a guitarist ..... B .... B+? I'd say a 5 or a C...i've heard equal amounts of guitar players worse than me and probably that many better than me as well!

    Complaining that there are hypocrites in church is like complaining that fat people use the gym. Where else would you have them be?

    - 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 not to notice anything's amiss? (Remember, the more dishes you prepare, the less chance that someone will find incriminating body parts in your freezer.)
