I have already met and gotten to hang out with most of my heroes. I'd like to hang out with Brian Posehn and another chance with Jim Florentine would be cool.

Well, not for a beer, but to my backyard and the pool; " Would you like a glass of wine dude ? See all that pool water.......? " [flapper] [flapper] [flapper] ...........

Why not beer? He is God, you know. If you prefer a pool of beer rather than wine, you gotta know he can do it.

I would take him to my favourite pizza restaurant and say "come on, do the trick! you know? where you can produce loads of bread from one...pizza is bread!"

 

Matt

Actually, you haven't run out of pizza there yet, have you?

 

See how cool he is?

How about Peter Coors? If you're going to have a beer, might as well have one with the guy that brews most of them (at least most of the good ones). [biggrin]

I actually did interview Vinton - but long before you were born. <grin>

 

Summer of '66 as I recall... Or '67. Hmmmm. No, probably '67.

 

Yes I remember you telling me, that's why I threw it out there. Hahaha!

 

 

Oh and if anyone's taking notes my DOB= 02/11/1960. So I was 7.

OK, you were in the world, if not entirely up with it at the time. <grin>

 

Oddly my mental picture of him I best recall is sitting on the Davison County Courthouse lawn with his wife during "down time" between performances.

Hard to pick just one person so I'm gonna go with Jimi Hendrix and Albert Einstein. That would probably be a very interesting conversation.........

Actually...

 

I figured only live people for this one. Ain't tipped a beer or coffee with any dead one lately.

 

I'll still stand with choosing HenryJ as an individual and...

 

If a real party, hey guys, howbout a Gibson Forums party??? Three days of organized and informal pickin' and grinnin'.

That would be Alex Lifeson, and I would insist on us both having our Les Paul's. I would have my current equipment set-up: pedals, amp and my Les Paul and get his input on my sound set-up for possible enhancements and he would teach me all of his musical secrets.

 

Ok, you can pinch me and wake me up from my dream now. [biggrin]

I was only thinking of the living but if you want to include those who have passed, I would love to have a beer with my younger brother, a great musician and friend.

Miss him a lot.

YES!!! Partying with you're heros and jamming and conversing with them---SWEET!!! And the chance to see Paul Gilbert and Satch or KWS snd Joe Bonamassa trading licks--that would be like guitar heaven. And if Jerry Seinfeld did stand up--nice. Now that I think about it, this would make an awesome festival--but a festival where everyone jams--no band/artist/comedien is booked. Like It Might Get Loud only on an outdoor stage and with a ton more people.

Sinatra. At Toots Shor in NYC, in the wee small hours of an autumn morning in 1964.

 

"Hey Joe...get me another and, uh.. one for my pal, here...."
