  1. I've bought all of the late stage Beatles box sets, as well as owning every album in just about every incarnation released. (except 8track which I hated from its beginning) Most of this material has been bootlegged for years but I'm a sucker for any enhanced audio of these classic. Mainly because as stated earlier Pepper and The White Album were like hearing something entirely different. I was also interested in hearing the Glyn Johns album that was rejected by the Beatles. (perhaps a little to raw and possibly a shock to their ears) In the end 3 weeks to write, record and perform live ,this new material, was too much for them. All in all , after listening to it for a couple days its a great addition to my collection. P.S. The blue ray disc does use the red apple pic. So it's there in the multi-disc set.
  2. If you’ve ever sung in a band or musical group you owe a debt of gratitude to the brothers. Two of rocks originals . RIP
  3. Always good to see another old timer pop in from time to time. Hope you and those close to you are doing well.
  4. You guys throw some great choices out there but I'm just a simple kind a man. For years now I've used the Boss Blues Driver into a Boss Distortion pedal. On a good day, if the winds just right and the temperature outside reaches a balmy 77 degrees I can find my Santana tone on the neck pup.
  5. Yes, She looks at guitars as art and loves when I'm looking for a new one. She's also become my concert buddy since my brother got married 8 years ago. We've seen some great shows together, McCartney, Billy Joel, Brian Wilson, Paul Simon, The Who, Brian Setzer, The Police to name a few. For years she came out on weekends to hear me play in the clubs. She's my biggest fan and the love of my life.
  6. Hofner Violin Bass (just like that lefty from the Beatles)
  7. The difference was Brian Wilson had complete control in the studio from the start. Don Kirshner ran the show on the early Monkees records and had the music for the first album and TV season in the can waiting for the newly hired band to put the vocals on. Tork told the story of how he showed up with his guitar for the first session and Kirshner asked him what he was doing? Of course a line was eventually drawn with show execs Rafelson and Schneider siding with the band and giving them total control to make the music.
  8. I don't know. He's been an extremely successful producer of movies, music and videos along with his songwriting. I'm not buying the being a Monkee was a curse BS. Of course when your Mom invents White Out and becomes a millionaire it softens any career missteps you might have made
  9. Come on, I was 6 when they debut and I knew it was a TV show. They were ripped by the media for doing nothing worse than the Mamas and Papas, Beach Boys and Birds were already doing. They did eventually play all the instruments on their third album.
  10. They've been touring every couple of years for a long time. Since 86 and with a little help from MTV, its been Mickey ,Peter and Davey, with MIke joining in for the occasional one off. Seen them several times and had the honor of meeting them backstage after meeting Mr. Jones in our airport as he came into town for their show. He gave me and my family free tickets and backstage passes and couldn't have been nicer.
  11. Very nice! Looks like a different guitar in every pic.
