  1. You know something fellow, I just read some of your tripe and you just ran me off this site. I got no need for you.
  2. I’ve got a cat. The cats name is Chili, my last 3 cats were all named Chili, all 3 I got from the Humane Society. But this cat is different because she is mean as a rattlesnake and never stops running her mouth. Should have named her after my ex-wife.
  3. Wouldn’t you loved to had been there, tucked away in the back and taking it all in. Talk about a memory for the rest of your life.
  4. Huntsville is a much bigger ‘music town’ than Birmingham. And if you head a few miles to your west you know why. Birmingham in the in the 1970’s had a decent amount of live music clubs. Not anymore.
  5. The regularly scheduled halftime show has been interrupted in my house with music by Robin Trower- Bridge of Sighs.
  6. “Well I’m not the kind to live in the past The years run too short and the days too fast The things you lean on are the things that don’t last“
  7. Living in the past, another century, this photo was from her youth and fast forward to today and she ain’t looking the same. Same with Stevie Nicks. Today she’s 5 feet tall and 5 feet wide. But as it has been written and sung, All Things Must Pass. We can still hold on to our youth till the bitter end, if only in our memories.
  8. I’ve never played a baritone anything. I’ve been driving around looking for pawn shop gems. Mostly struck out everyplace I go. Lots of Squier’s haven’t stumbled upon a 1980’s MIJ, lots of wore out amps, and lots of cheap Alvarez acoustic guitars. I know it’s just a matter of time before I find that ‘58 Burst with a 100.00 price tag on it.😂
  9. Active duty from 1983-1989. Recalled back to active duty 2001-2002. Got awarded 100% P&T by the VA in September 2019 and retired from the VA after 16 years in December 2019.
  10. I think when Lennon said he lit a fire, I think he meant he burned her house down.
  11. Bad acid in Munich killed the real Fleetwood Mac. The blues band that I thought was better than the Bluesbreakers. Bob Welch came along a saved a struggling rhythm section from becoming an afterthought then he left. Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks joined a band that was severely down on their luck and made them a super band. Mick Fleetwood has more lives than a cat.
  12. I saw them at Birmingham’s Boutwell Auditorium in January 1975. This was their only album and it was a great concert. I paid 7 a piece for two tickets. Man that was a great period in my life.
  13. So says Mick Fleetwood about Lindsey Buckingham as a member of Fleetwood Mac. Now it’s certainly none of my business but that doesn’t stop me from having an opinion. Fleetwood Mac was not founded by Mick Fleetwood as the article erroneously stated. Fleetwood Mac was originally founded by Peter Green. I do know the Peter Green carried the band until he left. Then Bob Welch carried the band until he left. Then Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks not only carried the band they were the band and made Mick Fleetwood a lot of money. I’ll pay to see Lindsey Buckingham but I wouldn’t walk across the street to see this edition of Fleetwood Mac.
  14. I got a jar from Tiny some years ago. Tiny would put rock candy in the jars of his shine. I looked at a jar and it looked like fine strings stuck to the bottom and rising up to the top. I asked Tiny what’s in this shine. He said oh it’s just the rock candy. I said it doesn’t look like candy. Tiny said that’s a sign the liquor has cured. I said, Tiny folks cure meat, I ain’t never heard of anyone curing liquor. Tiny looked at me and said, well if you sip this shine it I’ll cure whatever is a Illinig you.
  15. You ain’t tried nothing until you sip Tiny Skunkwaters corn liquor. Easy 180 proof. It could get a mule to win the Kentucky Derby
  16. That’s a beautiful guitar.
  17. I saw Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks 1975 at Boutwell Auditorium on their Buckingham Nicks album tour. It was the only album they made. Stevie Nicks had to be about 24 years old, 3 years older than me. Lindsey Buckingham was unbelievable and they even played a song that wasn’t on the album- Rhiannon! When they joined ‘Mac, they became Fleetwood Mac.
  18. What ever these folks do it’s really none of my business. Because it’s really just business. I never owned one piece of Aerosmith’s music and I never will. They just aren’t my cup of tea. But for those fans who dig Aerosmith you can do what I chose not to do when Fleetwood Mac went on tour last year without Lindsey Buckingham, I chose not to see them in Birmingham. And I didn’t miss a damn thing.
  19. When I stop and think about it, bands such as the Beatles, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Yes, and others became a brand. I saw The Who last spring and it was obvious that not only did Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend form a band, they really built a musical business, a corporate empire.
  20. I’ve been following NAMM on Guitar Player.Com, Guitar. Com, Music Radar. Com and I tell you the only guitar that jazzed me up is the non reverse Firebird from Gibson Custom Shop. Now everyone seems to be digging the Epiphones, and I get it, a Epiphone made in the USA is a rare treat for those who dig Epiphone. I don’t, but that doesn’t mean anything. I didn’t see one guitar from Fender that I would want, but I would be like a dog on a bone for a non reverse Firebird. And it’s made in the USA, like every Gibson.
  21. Man that clip was great. I would have played for the Beatles for free,,.. but I’m a rank amateur, suffice to say this cat wasn’t. Now I know who played my favorite part of the song.
  22. As a former resident of the Great State of Alabama (Roll Tide!) I’ve seen my share of tornadoes. I was at the Tuscaloosa VA when the epic tornado hit and destroyed Alberta section of town. Now a resident of Tennessee it’s the same today. Winds are ripping up here in the mountains, and I have relocated all of my guitars downstairs in a crawl space under the stairwell. But I would never consider living anywhere other that the South. If I have to explain what grits are or collard greens, I ain’t living there.
