    Worst You've Been Called

    My wife says I’m a nihilist. I prefer optimism impaired mixed with misanthropy.

    Are You A Tourist In Your Own Town?

    We’ve been in Atlanta for about 15 years and it’s so huge that you can never know everything going on. I’d say I know the northeast quarter inside the perimeter pretty well and know quite a few places that tourists would never see. Downtown is lame anyway. We live in a small townhome community...

    Acoustic treatment of your music room/studio?

    Couch cushions and an SM-57 are my secret. Lo-fi forever!

    Always wanted a J200

    I had 1 of these for 20 years but with the lawsuit “open book” headstock. It was a beast but attracted hippie chicks like a magnet. Good luck with your build. Very ambitious.

    Spooky Hot Sauce ?

    Not hot. I like it a lot although I prefer hotter sauces. Their spicy mango flavor is great.

    It’s not Leo’s fault, but . . . .

    Took me about 1 1/2 years to get used to it. Now it doesn’t bother me at all.

    This old house, check out what I found.

    A buddy of mine bought an apartment building and asked me if I would come over and help him rip up old crappy carpet. The whole building had 3 layers of carpet over original gorgeous 1870s wide board wood floors. It took days. The wood was riddled with staples and nail holes. He covered them...

    Contractors/flippers/builders/interior design aficionados : when will white/black/grey/oatmeal be over ?

    I noticed this trend in cars a while back. The vast majority of new cars I saw were black, white, grey, tan or silvery. My car is “slate” for example. Lately it seems to be slowly changing.

    Pink Floyd Argument Bait

    Pink Floyd can’t be categorized. I like the early stuff the best. Everything before Dark Side. They set no limits and would try just about anything. Sure, some of it is crap but some of it is amazing music that no other band could or would have done. None of them were virtuosos except Gilmour...

    What's The One Piece Of Gear You Can't Live Without?

    1986 Taylor 712. I chose wisely. Cedar top. Neck is among the best I’ve ever played. Logo is gold silkscreen and binding is plastic. Broken in to perfection. Every time I play it I am blown away.

    Are we guitarists the absolute worst about buying stuff for our stuff? Who is worse than we are?

    Honestly, I use a $20 santoku I bought at the grocery store more these days. I pull out the good chef’s knife if I have to process large amounts of vegetables. It’s fantastic for that.

    Are You The Cutest Boy In Town? Zappa content.

    I saw a show on this tour. Amazing.

    Are we guitarists the absolute worst about buying stuff for our stuff? Who is worse than we are?

    I buy myself a present once a year. Most times it’s music gear. 1 Year it was a really nice chef’s knife because I cook a lot. Last year it was a very nice pocket knife because I never had 1. Another year it was a very rare record I had been looking for. Another year it was a silver/turquoise...

    Physics: Large Hadron Collider suggests a new particle carrying a fifth force of nature.

    It’s the force that makes socks, picks and lighters disappear, isn’t it?

    Physics: Large Hadron Collider suggests a new particle carrying a fifth force of nature.

    My theory is that space/time is torus shaped. The Big Bang is at the center. We have travelled more than halfway around the surface so it appears that the expansion of the universe is speeding up because we can only look backwards in time.

    Zippo! Who still has one?

    I had 1 for many years. Lost it and my Swiss Army knife in the same bar on the same night. Worst night of my life but I did meet my wife for the first time the next day.

    Weird Phone Calls

    Obscene caller in the 1970s, breathing heavily: Can you guess what I have in my hand right now? My Ma: Honey, if you only need 1 hand, I ain’t interested. Obscene caller, no longer breathing heavily: ..... click Don’t mess with my Ma. She will own you.

    Let's talk about Classic cartoon series and what you hate about them.

    I still remember some of the background music loops from Scooby Doo. They taught me how to play lead guitar.

    Any Pink Floyd Fans Out There?

    Yeah, the production on DSOTM was completely unmatched at the time. Also, the sax was a nice addition to their palette as were the female vocals. I’m not knocking the album, just saying that they took everything they had learned from the very beginning and threw it all together into a cohesive...

    Any Pink Floyd Fans Out There?

    Oddly, I mostly listen to everything before DSOTM these days and especially the Amsterdam ‘69 show. To me DSOTM didn’t break new ground but basically summed up everything they had learned up to that point very nicely. It sort of put all the pieces together.

    Why. Oh, Why.

    The guy is definitely a great player and very versatile but I wouldn’t put him in the top echelon with Jimi and the like.
