    I'm sure your command of the English language is better than that and insult Joe himself.
    A friend of mine here in South Aus. sold Joe a couple of vintage necks and Joe said " You'll see me using those". Apparently a great bloke, great manners, nice guy, down to earth and a great muso.

    I think Joe is often at his best in small venues. Seems to have more fun, and play around/experiment more. And, IMHO, he shines on a Tele.

    Ive seen him a few times at smaller venues and a few times at bigger venues, Hollywood Bowl and the Greek. The smaller stuff is way better i think. He plays differently, get to stretch out more. Last night was a nice combo of funk rock, progressive jazz rock stuff, blues and country stuff. He used the tele about 50 % and this Les Paul the rest. Played through 2 old Tweed amps, and some pedals Ive never seen before?

    Outstanding tone.

    I had no idea. Bet that was a good show. I hadn't been to the Baked Potato in many years.

    ...And you're a comedian too.

    No, (I) don't offend that easily. Cuss "like a sailor" (or street filth or whatever you wanna call it) myself. Sometimes.
    I was just alluding to what the other, "command of the English Language" post might've been "on about".
    And what moderators sometimes (depending on depending on) fuss about.

    VikinginLA it is your language I object to.
    Quite frankly I don't know how it was allowed as
    it contravenes the respectful rules we should all read and adhere to.
    I'm no snob but after38 years of teaching, some in rough schools where I've seen grown men cry, then "throw in the towel", some of us appreciate the governance on this forum; and plainly put, I don't want that kind of language around me and don't use it. Swearing only shows one's ignorance and is disrespectful to others.

    Wow, rough crowd. I thought it was a good description of how much fun you had.

    I do believe that is why he may or may not have purposely mis-spelled the word that you are alluding to.
