  1. I could never use a thin pick. Tried it and just does not work for me. I hit strings pretty hard and don’t have much finesse in my playing style. I’m working on it though.
  2. They were going to just throw them away? Crazy.
  3. I have a Silverface Deluxe Reverb, I think it’s from the late 60s, all original. My grandfather bought it new, then my dad got it when he died and I got it from my dad when he passed away. It’s a great amp that hasn’t actually been played much, at least in the 30 years I’ve known about it. I’ve always wanted a Twin. Nothing sounds better than a cranked Twin Reverb IMO.
  4. I buy Dunlop 1.0s, but I’ll play with whatever is laying around.
  5. I’ve never gotten wanting to own an exact replica of someone else’s guitar either. I mean, I think Steve Jones’ 1974 white LPC is the coolest looking guitar there ever was or will be, and I own a white LPC because of him, but I don’t want my guitar to be a copy of his. I want my guitar to be my guitar. But do many people try to replicate his down to the stickers, aged finish, no pickup covers, no pickguard etc etc etc.
  6. I’ve seen them “fix” old valuable guitars that had damage and they “age” the repairs to match the rest of the guitar. Personally I’d rather a repair be left alone, it adds to a guitars character and uniqueness IMO. It also prevents anyone from trying to pass it off as “all original” down the line. My 95 Classic is beat to hell and I did about 95% of it (my dad did the other 5) by playing it. Im proud of that. I wore a tiny sliver of the finish off where my arm rests and I played the dog crap out of that guitar for over 15 years. I would never buy a “”reliced” guitar.
  7. The guys who really know what they’re doing will fool anyone. I read a book about the original burst 58-60 LP a while back and in the book one of the experts says even he can never be 100% sure the guitars are authentic because of relicing and expert guitar makers who can replicate any detail on an old guitar. And of course people can do what they want but it doesn’t make it any less fake or ridiculous. Especially the homemade “relic” jobs on Craigslist or Ebay. There’s a Fender Highway 1 Strat I was looking at on Reverb that was marked down because someone had “reliced” it. It looked like they just used a sander to take paint off in random spots, which of course looks retarded.
  8. I’ve always though Mosrites looked lame. Before Johnny Ramone they were dirt cheap from what I’ve read, I think he bought his first one for $50 bucks and one of the reasons he stuck with it was because no one else played them. Now original “vintage” Mosrites go for thousands and I’ve read they aren’t particularly well made guitars.
  9. Nah, it’s just my fans doing what they do. I don’t downvote anything, it’s silly and childish. If I don’t like what someone says I just tell them.
  10. That’s my problem with Grohl, he’s “Mr Entertainment”. The Foo Fighters have played with everyone on every awards show, every tribute. Them doing horrible mainstream bullshit like Carpool Karaoke is just sad. I mean if you’re going to be a rock band you have to have some rock cred. Singing with some fat unfunny TV show host in a minivan is about as lame as it gets IMO.
  11. That song just sounds like a generic rock song to me until Vedder starts singing, I just can’t stand his voice.
  12. Yeah, I’ve never heard any of the Pixies say they thought they were over produced or even talk about over production or anything. They just had their own unique sound. Kim’s Bass was great, Joey’s sonic contributions made the songs sound different than any other band and Black’s songwriting was great. Their drummer...well....he’s a drummer lol. I wasn’t into the Pixies much their first go around, I think I only ever heard Where is my Mind and Monkey Gone to Heaven until I got their greatest hits about a decade ago. But now Santiago is one of my favorite guitarists. I love the tones and textures he layers through their songs. I think what kept them from being huge is also what made them great, their songs lyrics and subject matter are often bizarre and unrelatable. I remember the first time I heard Bone Machine or Caribou and thinking “great tune but WTF is he talking about?” I had to get past the fact that the lyrics were often surreal and unrelatable (for me personally) to get into them. I don’t need literal lyrics, I love “tone poem” type songs but I’m one of those people that can’t get into a song easily if I can’t get into the lyrics or subject matter.
  13. Sure thing. And sometimes people follow other people around because they “like messing with them”, like you for instance. I mean Farns up there was just talking about PMs you knuckleheads have about me so a little late for denial now. Be sure to report all this to him, so he can “expose” me lol. I love how he says he’s “documenting” everything I say so he can “expose” me but you’re acting like me laughing at you lunatics is crazy.
