I want a used-car salesman presiding at my funeral. "Ashes to ashes, dust to dust... and, speaking of cheap off-road vehicles..."

Didn't watch it. Care to summarize?

And yeah I'm sure the orange guy wasn't invited.

Oh and Ringo - absolutely a top shelf drummer. 

He's way better than me. Hell a kid who has only been playing for a week is better than me. Love the drum sound they got on Come Together.

He wasn't overly technical on any track.  He played to support the vocal line.  His playing would have been out of place in a band like Rush, just like Peart would have been out of place in the Beatles.  "Put away the rototoms Neil, this is 'Love Me Do'.

He was what The Beatles need, a backbeat.

Neil had every possible percussive thing in his kit and then one more. Saw them 8 times. Jammed A Farewell To Kings yesterday. That I'm not tired of...

 Ringo is a great drummer, yer right there.

I was told that Ringo was one of the few drummers who could always keep a perfect beat.  Never off.

Perhaps if the current President actually showed up once in a while to pay some respect, there would be no need for this type of 'political' speech.   

I respect your opinion, but I don't think he did the right thing.

Yeah, Told Debbie, if it doesn't come this week, then I am going to tell them Forget it.  I gave you plenty of time and will order it from Sweetwater.

Its supposedly held up in California, but if it's still there, then maybe they closed down?  Getting ridicules anyway.

Who did you order it from? And what guitar, sorry if I missed that part of it.

I ordered a custom Riviera P93 in wine red from Dietze Music 6 weeks ago. I didn't see who they actually ordered it from. It was supposed to arrive in 10 to 12 days.

I have leaned this year that I am apparently an essential worker.  I want a raise.  You may call me sir.

And to the ones that really are essential, thank you for your service.

It's to hot and wet to fish, I hate that...

I wouldn't recommend this but,  Way back out of high school, I worked at Omaha Standard.  Over 3 years and they wouldn't give me a raise.  I worked my butt off 9 hours a day even setting records on racks I got done.  One day I had enough and hopped up on my rack to sit down & let the work pile up.  The leadman came over to ask what was going on?  I told him, it was my journeyman wages stopping me.  He sent me to the foreman's office and when I came back he was shocked that I got my raise instead of being fired.  Then the work started up again. Lol.

At least weld some type of metalic reed valve in the piping so you can tune them. 2 cylinder bike =power chord.

Imagine Sturgis,,,,, thousands of bikes rocking to AC/DC!
