    Why not ? i saw them twice, and i had a good time at both shows. There a few beefy skinheads in there, but it was a big party with everyone singing the words.

    Did he bother to use necks two and three at all during those shows? Because he didn't in the above clip. Which then begs the question: why? That's a lot of weight to strap around your neck to not use 2/3 of it.

    he probably didn't have that guitar back then. I watched the intro to the song and you can see him playing different chords on the 3 necks. I guess it is just for show more than anything else.
    Pretty sure he switched to his usual tele after that song.

    The intro, fretting one neck and strumming the other, that's a great trick and fits the group perfectly. Everyone complaining hates fun.

    Punk bands take great care not to look ridiculous.

    What's the point of 3 seemingly identical guitars/necks? Unless at some point two other people get behind him and they all play together...

    Now this thing on the other hand:

    Don't even bother this is like all those kids in 1963 trying to convince their parents The Beatles can do more than "scream yeah yeah yeah into the microphone"
