  1. Blues! Circa 1983 or 1984 or so; a bootleg recording on cassette of John Mayall's Blues Breakers featuring Eric Clapton doing their version of "Steppin' Out" set the whole thing in motion for me! I found the destination of my whole music sojourn when I discovered that song... It has led me to see and even meet many of the pioneers & originators; Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Hubert Sumlin, and many many more... Culminating in my obsession with British Blues guitar...
  2. Certainly not for the photo stills that play for the audio... But I think this live performance at The Warehouse in New Orleans circa January 30th 1970 was simply amazing! The whole concert can be found on YouTube... Otis Rush's "It Takes Time" as performed by Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac:
  3. A little more on the subject; which apparently from my history is one of my very favorite subjects ever... Peter Green, Gary Moore and The Holy Grail Les Paul Ted Drozdowski 10.25.2011 An article on Gibson.com We also have the information from the Gibson Collector's Choice premier relsease: The Collector's Choiceâ„¢ #1 Introducing the Gary Moore Aged and Melvyn Franks VOS 1959 Les Paul Standard It is not in production currently and the information isn't updated to current; the fact that Metallica's Kirk Hammett now owns it... Supposedly Gibson's reproduction is a
  4. Thanks guys! I still say there's no such thing a handling illicit drugs, I believe there are people that think they handle illicit drugs, but it's usually a fools fantasy! Even pot turns people into utterly useless wasteoids and hold zero value as do people who think it's OK... In my book. (my personal belief and opinion, U don't like it GFY) There are a couple close-but-not-quite points on the topic. I'd like to set the record : Both Peter and Danny were utterly lost from that moment on... Danny has never recovered and still lives in mental institutions and halfway houses
  5. And I still disagree with that being his greatest solo. Some of it is OK, it was certainly a dramatic departure from his earlier style. Some of it is just mushy and washes-out on that album. Frankly I never much liked his wah work I don't think he had the knack for it... To each his own... I will say this; even when he was "lost" and had seemed to have fallen off the face of the earth with his mental illness and the fallout of his drugs. He was still very prolific in the studio! He made many albums after leaving Fleetwood Mac thru the years before his re-emergence with The Splinte
  6. He's one of the guys I saw when I was doing my research on them. He sounded great with one! I'll vote for his '53-'56 Custom Black Beauty RI signature too! Although I understand it was not a main guitar of his for any serious period from what I can tell... But that won't really help me get my hands on one because I'm sure it would be out of my price range...
  7. Yes, Peter Green's Fleetwood Mac was on the original bill for the Premier/Grand-Opening!
  8. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_BhYUadJ90 Man Gregg could pull-off BB King tunes with his voice at such a young age! Amazing! Early days as a cover band... Fun stuff!
  9. Sweet!!! That looks very much like the In-Step tour when I got to see him in 1989... Best concert I ever saw!
  10. OK, not that one, but Debbie Gibson owns a piano that I believe was given to her by Liberace; a mirrored piano. She was featured on Celebrity Ghost Stories about an event surrounding that piano... She's a hottie! alright, where were we? I think I'm definitely missing something alluded to somewhere in the conversation that I'm just not connecting the dots on... I'm definitely in the dark on some level about some parts of this conversation...
  11. I thought I saw somewhere that Debbie Gibson owns this now...
  12. Sorry, but Barry Soetoro proved it so with a daytime raid during work hours by black-out clad, automatic weapons armed, federal agents on Gibson factory workers during business hours... It happened dude!
  13. Players will want nothing to do with this guitar... It's not for players. It's not even for posers either, (not sure I get the posers reference, it sounds like a shot the way it's framed, but that seems unlike you so I'll presume it's not and I simply missed the meaning) it's for investors. It is nothing more than a thing to invest money in. Instead of a bond or piece of paper, it's a physical good for store away and keep for the investment... If you have it stored in a safe place on your own property, you will have something valuable to barter with if banks fail, again... You also
