    I like Lonnie Mack, but he barely pulls off the vest and the matching shirt & hat, let alone the V. :D

    Stupid?
    Well every time I pick up a guitar, the guitar cops a plea. and shamelessly points at me screaming
    " it' him, not me!".
    That pick up intimidating. I like the very clean look of the guitar.

    We can't all be bedazzled chicken pickers.

    Hendrix and DD are the only 2 cats that get passes for strats. And gilmour too, I guess.

    Have his medical records been released, with a doctor's diagnosis indicating a low-strung guitar ruined his back?

    According to an interview I read, he said he broke his back.

    And he probably pulled a lot more tail than you could ever dream of 'looking like a d-bag.'

    The measure of a man is the number of notches of his bedpost, after all. Didn't mean to touch a nerve making fun of the pop-punk troubadour, but it's sweet of you to speak up for him.

    You know, now that I'm not a youngster anymore, and my stomach has grown s couple pant sizes, I would imagine any guitar looks stupid on me. But I'm gonna play em, and if I get much bigger I can lay it out like a lap steel... ;-)

    To the OP, pics or it never happened. Let us decide. As you can tell, we're a kind, impartial audience.

    Yes, just as the measure of d-baggery is how low one's guitar is slung. I'll make sure Jimmy Page is made aware Zezozose of the tdpri doesn't approve.

    What's next, Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne chiming in on TDPRI's "Poser stole my look?" Lonnie paid his dues, he gets a pass.

    I always thought SRV would have been like 6 ft 3 or around that area. By the way, Fender's Tom Delonge Strat is actually a great guitar!

    G-dang, you guys. You are a seriously funny group of guys. That is rarely mentioned when we sing the praises of this forum, but it is true. Always some good zingers in every thread. Me, on the other hand, believe it or not, I am almost always very funny in social settings when there are 5 or more people. Timing. Somehow, I learned timing, maybe from Jack Benny, or something. But in print, I am just a drip. Put me in a party, and I am the life of it, even though I dread going. But once I am there, I try to keep the ball rolling. I don't tell any jokes, I just chime in with a perfect word at the perfect moment. My girlfriends have always commented on how ironic it is that I detest going to any kind of social event, but once there, I am the life of the party. Why do I suck so much in print? OK, I am a little wordy and over-explain things. But that's only because I want to be clear and set up the context for my post. I wonder how you demons of the post are in social settings?
