    George Orwell is currently writing a book about it. I'll wait till it comes out to find out.

    What were The 70's really like?

    I loved the 70's. Allman Brothers Band (and so much other great music), pretty girls, draft stopped the year I became eligible ('73), being 20 in '75 with no expectations from anyone. Drove some clunkers that were some of the most unsafe cars on the road - no windshield wipers, a bag of Burger...

    Another Unpopular Opinion

    I was the only one in my circle that didn't like them. Boring. Every time someone would put on one of their albums I was always thinking "Really? There are so many better choices available". Then there's Bob Weir wearing those "Daisy Dukes" - too weird, even for the 70's. I was permanently out...

    Pickguard on or off!

    Pickguard on for LPs. Mojo escapes through those empty screw holes.

    Three Dog Night - Vintage and Live Performances

    Came to appreciate them more over the years. All they did was turn clunkers into #1 hits. No session musicians, their band played all the music.

    Single worst line of lyrics....

    And men still keep on marching off to war Electrically they keep a baseball score Man, they must've really struggled with that one. There are thousands of words that rhyme with 'war'.

    Duane's sound on this album is the holy grail of tone. I wore out so many copies trying to cop all of Dickies' licks - it's what substituted as 'scales' for me in a pre-internet age. Duane's licks? Yeah, right ;)

    Heater on or off at night?

    I use just a sheet and an electric blanket in the winter months down here where winter is defined as anything below 68. I can't stand anything heavy on my feet when I sleep (claustrophobic) so extra blankets are not an option. The forced-air heat in the house is a last option. All it does is...

    I don't enjoy dancing

    No - never felt natural or fun. As someone who came of age during the disco years - this was a pretty big handicap. Thank God it didn't last long. And yes, I hate going to weddings!

    Draining the pool

    Just had a 10,000 gallon pool drained and refinished. Refinishing cost twice as much as when I last had it done in 2005, but the water refill was only $100. BTW - the pool guy says to drain your pool twice a year... yeah, right.

    What’s Your Best Twin Lead Song?

    I always though this one was underrated. Not a band normally known for twin leads, but the harmonies on this one is as good as it gets IMO.

    What is your fave Rhythm Guitar?

    Nothing beats a 60's style Tele for me.
