    I think most of my hero's are recovering alcoholics, so I'd have to say grab a coffee with Pete Townshend (living) or Ronnie Lane (deceased). Could probably drink just about anything with Ron Wood, though.

    not a guitarist
    Also, i don't believe I recall ever seeing a pic of Linda Ronstadt holding a guitar
    Maybe I'm wrong

    Gotta say coffee with Joe Walsh.

    We share the same recovery path, and by all accounts he is a no B.S. kinda guy.

    I'd love some of his favorite war stories, and the truth about surviving that industry.

    For many of us old guitar guys that traveled a similar lifestyle, Joe is a kindred spirit.

    I’ve heard he wasn’t easy to get along with. In interviews it always seemed like Ed Cynar was scared of him. But dang, just give me something I can run with, Mr. Wray.

    Old wild bandmate who fell of the grid and emerged a decade later as a criminal defense attorney in FLA. I bet he's got some stories to tell. :cool:

    A drink with Mark Twain would potentially be interesting

    I've also heard that back at the height of her considerable powers of attraction, she was very uh, generous

    I think former drinkers are the ones who would have the best stories. I’d like something non-alcoholic with Steve Jones.

    @blowtorch I love Twain. The Innocents Abroad is probably the funniest book I’ve ever read. But I feel like I’d be way too dumb to keep up with him. But yeah, would be fun.

    To talk with a songwriter? Lou Reed.
    To talk about guitar? Mick Ronson.
    Or for fearlessness, Suzi Quatro!

    well it depends on what you call a guitarist. I think he played a bit, but was not that good. Especially compared to les paul.

    Can we get a ruling on this, from the Leo Fender authorities out there?

    I've read that when approached by players with the idea of installing a truss rod, he saw no need, and set one of his necks between two chairs and stood on it, to demonstrate it was strong enough as was, and wouldn't break

    I could be wrong, but my understanding has been he did not play, at all
