    Musicians who use made up first names!

    Bono and Edge would have to be my pet dislikes for pseudonyms. Why dey all do it??Okay a nickname here and there but so many. Elvis Costello is a weird one, why use Elvis who had a real name Elvis? Got me mystified.

    Meatloaf went all the way last night, paradise, no dashboard light...

    He "sang" at our AFL Football Grand final a few years ago. Many wondered why the AFL hired him as it was not the loaf's best performance. Seems he invented a new key to sing in.

    Japan and wackiness.

    Not whacky, sensible, especially in a cold climate. I liked it when I visited, I could shave. Just so unusual when you come from hot Australia. Today was a mild day , 32C ( 89.6 C ) . Need to shower early and later in the day. Air- conditioning or perish here.

    The "Shared" Gig

    Best band I played in the other guitarist sang and played, so Did I. He's also made a Thinline Telecaster with a Widerange p/up in the neck and a Mighty Mite in the bridge. Ash body ( Mighty Mite ) and wired it himself. In those days MM and Schecter parts were for improving your Fender. That...

    Indiana Jones

    What I don't get is Harrison Ford went on to marry that singer in Shanghai who had a screeching , whining voice. I wonder if that lasted. I can't bare that movie because of her. She and I wouldn't last a date.

    The "Shared" Gig

    No , not shared time, but I will only share guitar work ala Keith and Ron Woods. Hate the idea of a dominant guitar player and a " rhythm" guitarist.

    Japan and wackiness.

    My sister lived and worked in Japan for two years in the 90s. Her small apartment had a heated toilet seat and mirrors in the bathroom. They, her and husband, actually had a bedroom that only fitted a bed but better than a hidden in the wall bed like an ironing board that you pulled out. Wasn't...

    44 Years Ago Today - What Was YOUR FIRST CONCERT ?

    Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1972, I was 16. John Fogerty, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford ( Tom Fogerty had left the band). John Fogerty used a Japanese Ibanez ( no label) early 70s lawsuit guitar that sounded as good as any Les Paul. He only used his " Black Beauty" for the encore and it was...

    Would you rather be without electricity, or water?

    In oz we can get sun power or you can create a water powered generator. We need the water.

    Weird Phone Calls

    It happens here in Oz. They ( real estate agents) even ask if it's okay for buyers to do a drive by. It's a nuisance and they just want sales and commissions.

    Netflix Increasing Shareholder Value Again

    Yeah they raised it here to just over $20 AUD. I'm disappointed with it and may go to another provider.

    Kelton Swade..R.I.P.

    Regardless of what some people seem to think of him , he made good guitars. I believe Keith Urban has a Brownie Telecaster made by Swade after losing several guitars in the Nashville floods. Now Kelton can RIP.

    The stigma of yoga

    I found yoga my mid-week relaxation when I worked. Often fell asleep during the meditation at end and was relaxed driving home. BTW i do not carry aa gun ( only Police and certain others do here) and swim about 30+ km. ( 20 miles) a week. No gun toting round here.

    Terrible unfortunate accident. Injury. Need some advice.

    Sounds like you're a nice guy giving some person a hand. Stupid idea to get involved in what is essentially a commercial contract between repairer and your mother. I don't think you'll be compensated. It was totally wrong of that man to get a bystander involved' He should have had a co-worker...

    The most important lesson you or your children can learn.

    Be kind to others. You don't know how they are feeling or what is going on in their lives. Just be a nice person to others.

    i m not a huge dire straits fan but...

    Best guitar playing on an electric I've ever heard in 55 years of playing. Sultans of Swing made me throw away my picks , sell my 73 telecaster for a Strat. Anyone who can keep up with Chet has got to be good and MK is a lefty.
