"We're all playing the same 12 notes. After that, it's what's inside that counts," Joe Satriani.

"If you don't sing, you better have a van, because that's the only way you're going to get a gig." Jimmie Vaughan.

"...Teles and Big Muffs go together like ham and cheese," Gearmanndude.

"If you're going to play the damn thing, play it like it's never been played beforeóor don't play it at all," Buddy Guy.

"See, a lot of cats don't work on the rhythm enough, and if you don't have rhythm, you might as well take up needlepoint or something," Prince.

"A pop star's career lasts for 18 months, but a musician's career lasts a life time," Peter Frampton.

"When I was touring with Neil Young, I got the best schooling ever on guitars and tone. He taught me that basically if you donít have tone, you might as well go home," Mike Ness from Social Distortion.

"To be honest, looking at your pic for about 18 months (I downloaded it, very good shot apart from also being a beautiful guitar) was one BIG reason for me getting it. I thought "I MUST have one of those before it's too late," Gibson Forums Member.

"It's all about feel, passion, and emotionómoving people with the guitar," Kenny Wayne Shepherd.

My first rush Concert was the 2112 tour at the Boston Gardens, but they had me @ Caress of Steel

I've probably seen them 10 or 11 times.
