  1. The Gary Moore BFG I had... I sold it mainly cos I didn't get on with the fat neck.. I hadn't started building at that point. If I still had it I would have shaved the neck down myself now... The thing about this guitar is it didn't look or sound like any other guitar I have or have played.. Proper unique... I loved the barely finished look and it had a proper monster sound, especially in the middle position.
  2. Yeah I heard this too.. Really sad what with everything else that's going on. Amazing voice.. And I am not sure music comes any more funky than this
  3. Yeah I heard that too.... I spoke to my boss earlier today. He lives in Camden which is a very busy part of London. He also has asthma and has totally noticed how much cleaner the air feels to breath and how much better he is breathing in general because of it.. Its amazing how quickly the change has come since we have only been in lockdown a few weeks. And totally shows how much difference we could make to what we are doing to the planet if we all just made a few changes in our lives. When all this stops and life gets back to "normal" I sadly think people will just go straight back to their old habits. We can always hope though 🙂
  4. Its amazing really isn't it.. AND actually shows if the world were to work together and all just change our lives a bit we could actually help heal the planet. This will be real proof. Sadly I don't think it will change anything. But we can only hope and as mentioned above, if our generation cant or wont maybe the next generation will.
  5. Well good luck with it all... And yes I think this is going to force us all to change the way we think a little.. Which will hopefully bring new and creative/interesting ways of living our lives that we would have previously not considered.
  6. Exactly... It shows we are all the same on the inside... All human (even though some act like animals and monsters)...
  7. Yes as others have said.. And what with all this virus going on.. My best wishes too.. Good luck....
  8. What times we are living through hey...... I was thinking though that already we are starting to see some interesting positive effects from this. Like from what I have read for instance some places like in China they are seeing a massive drop in pollution as people aren't driving as much and some factories that were pumping out nasty crap have closed for the moment. That's a positive I think... People coming together. Ok there are always Aholes around to ruin things but I think in general this is making people more aware of other people and how we are all feeling. I donno and stuff like when they asked for volunteers for the NHS we had 500,000 people in one day apply.. That's pretty amazing. I think we will see more of this. New creative ways to interact with each other using technology... Brian May becoming our personal teacher 😄 Maybe, hopefully people become more aware of general hygiene. Families spending more quality time together.. Lots of people work hard and don't get much time with their kids... This is giving people a breather as such. Ok I know its not all that simple. Some people will be totally screwed because of this and I am not ignoring that.. Just looking for the silver lining if you like.. Its all so negative I want to see where the positives are.. I guess what I am hoping for is we learn a bit from whats happening and use it to make us stronger in the end, not weaker as a species. Anyone else got more to add?
  9. Yeah... I think they are very cool guitars... Apparently Aquaman plays one 🙂
  10. She is very cute isn't she 🙂 Also shes a bit mad. Welsh terriers are known to be a bit head strong which she is.. But she is lovely none the less.
  11. Not a lot here.. We are setting up a tablet for my mum so she can skype the grandkids... So I popped out to pick it up.. The hardest bit is going to be getting my mum to learn how to use it.. She doesn't do technology... When I picked it up though at my sisters home I had the most painful moment yet in this whole thing. My sister has a lovely dog called Olive (Welsh terrier). We are very good friends and I haven't seen her for weeks. In order to be sensible my sister just left the tablet on her front door so I didn't go in the house or anything, but my niece Betssie wanted to say hello at the widow.. Olive spotted me and started whining cos she wanted to see me.. Was really upsetting just cos she doesn't understand why she cant see me... not being able to go in and give her a good scratching.... Oh well. better to be safe... I know. Just so odd how something as simple as popping to my sisters is now so weird. Olive.. In this shot I had said the W word 🙂 And of course loves a good fight
  12. Had to go out again today.. Did my mums weekly shop and got her pills... And got my mum to put the pills in the pill box herself so I didn't touch them at all.. And had to get some shopping for my sister too as she has health issues and her partner is a delivery driver so is still working.. When he has to drive for more than 8 hours he has to stop and rest before he can continue so sometimes is away overnight. I did do one thing different today.. Every person who I dealt with at the shops, I thanked them for their service.. Especially the pharmacy, they were down to two shop staff and were dealing with most of the areas pills and requests.. Mad.... I think all of these people who have to go out every day and face hundreds of the public are amazing.. Putting themselves at risk and continuing to work. Let alone the front line medical staff. I wouldn't want to be doing that job at any time, let alone now.. Stay safe everyone
  13. Don't know if its still on there but the Anvil film is a brilliant watch.. Both utterly tragic but uplifting at the same time 🙂 (like real life Spinal Tap).
  14. Its in times like this that we need to be more supportive than ever.. Its like a war time footing. That old saying, We can each help change the world one person at a time.. Its the only way an individual can really. We are all it together. Being nice and thoughtful to each other cost nothing and means everything. It shouldn't really take something like this or a war to bring people together but it certainly highlights the issue.. Stay safe as you can everyone.
  15. Cheers. But she deserves it... My dad only passed about a year and a half ago, she still isn't really over that, they were married for like 52 years.. While I will take every precaution including limiting my own exposure as much as I can by staying in unless going out for food, theres no way we can totally leave her alone. And theres no way I am going to let her down. Both of my parents have been amazing throughout my life ALWAYS supporting me no matter what and only wanting the best for me to a point I could never repay them (not that they or any parent wants repaying).. This is the least I can do.
  16. I went out today as I had to go and do some stuff at my mums.. Financial stuff that cant really wait.. But I kept my distance... While I was there and as it was actually nice out I did the lawn for the first time this year (been raining constantly for months)…. At least it was time outside 🙂 Then on the way home needed some foodstuffs... Went to the biggest supermarket and was greeted with this Never seen that before... Mad, but at least the supermarket are finally doing something to avoid crowding inside.. I hope they are also limiting what people buy cos its just so ridiculous... I then went straight to a smaller shop and there was no queue and about five people in the shop 😄 And the shelves were about 80% full... Got most the stuff I need.. Still no chicken though which is annoying as I am trying to decrease my intake of red meat and ONLY have read meat in the freezer as that's all I could find.. Fun fun fun,,, NOT!!
  17. I donno.. That was five years ago now.. They aren't expected to keep stock for ever... Graphtech do a great replacement... https://www.stringsdirect.co.uk/parts-c4/acoustic-guitar-parts-c691/nuts-c692/graph-tech-tusq-xl-adjustable-replacement-nut-p10912?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2Zrb6Oax6AIVxkPTCh0O1gXlEAQYASABEgL0UPD_BwE#fo_c=1949&fo_k=e350a883f22a16c99f79e4043eda8256&fo_s=gplauk?utm_source=google&utm_medium=cpc&utm_term=
  18. We are about to get an announcement over here. Boris going on at 20:30 (just over an hours time)... I reckon, London at least will go in to proper lockdown Not gonna be fun. But I cant believe the scenes I am seeing out on the streets with people totally ignoring any advice to stay away from each other. So sadly due to the selfish idiots its now pretty much inevitable Crazy times indeed.. Really not looking forward to this, and im already bored..
  19. Lol.. I guess so.. I dare not listen to Pink Floyd at the moment. Real life is depressing enough 😛
  20. Yup.. 😞 (what I wouldn't give to see his little furry face right now). I did nothing today.. And that seems to be what I will be doing most days now till this crap gets sorted out or whatever is going to happen. Yikes... all getting very worrying and boring.
  21. Don't forget Authentic too 😄
