    I like to maintain an air of mystery.

    I’ve met @StrangerNY at one of his gigs in 2019. I’ve had conversations with a few here, @nojazzhere among them. @P Thought and I have exchanged letters or essays as the case may be, often about “banned” topics. I hope to travel abroad again when the world’s biggest health problems are non-communicable. Maybe I’ll try to make contact with someone at my destination. I’ve got stamps from 40 something countries in my passport collection. I’d like to see a few more.

    Yes - I sold an amp to somebody on here, and at the NAMM Show I met an admin who gave me an enormous TDPRI sticker, which I still have. One of those too-good-to-use stickers!

    Paul Green, Pete Bradt, Ron Augustinsky, Tim Armstrong, I think BSman (been awhile) and a couple others my old brain is failing to remember, all great experiences, all super cool folks... I used to talk to E.D. Patton on the phone quite a bit, have not heard from him in a bit. Would love to have a cold one with everybody!

    I became friends with @cuscus through TDPRI and when I visited the UK ... man I guess it was well over 10 years ago, I met him and his wife, saw his guitars, got to go to a pub, talk guitars etc. in person. I consider him one of my closest friends and we chat about guitars and everything else probably weekly, though I am in the US and he in the UK.

    I highly recommend meeting your TDPRI buddies in person once we can do that again. It seems we have something in common with whoever is here :)

    No.

    I took a couple years off the forum (nasty divorce, ex was holding onto all of my music equipment saying it was hers). When I came back I don't recognize a lot of people and a lot of the regulars that I knew (online) weren't here anymore.

    I’ve had a nice lunch with @TheGoodTexan. Supper with @Redd Volkaert. Played a few Blugrass jobs with founder Noam Pikelny. Plus one or two (I guess) former members- Joel Ulmer and Johnny Issacs.

    Great people all

    Met another member once at the Continental Club, very nice fellow by the name of Redd, Redd Volkaert I believe. We talked for 10 minutes, but neither of us knew we were members.

    In any event, he can really play. Would love to see him play again.:D:eek::D

    How could I have forgotten our illustrious member Redd V!
    I’ve seen him play dozens of times, and had lunch with him a time or three.
    I bought a great sounding BF Twin from him a dozen years ago.
    It sounded great, but wasn’t contagious.
    I still sounded like me.
    We miss him around here.

    I did (unknowingly) meet the late Big John in the late 1970's. He was playing for one of the top Country bands in our area - a band called 'Countrystyle'.

    This only came to light during an on-line message exchange via this forum with him after he had moved to the States. We were reminiscing about the bands in East Anglia during the late '70's and it came to light that we had met and chatted during one of his gigs in a local social club all those years ago. He was an amazing player and a thoroughly nice guy.

    Yep... had a terrific lunch with @Buckocaster51 and his lovely wife about a year ago. He didn't even ban me!

    Of course, @Joel Terry and I were good friends.

    I used to see @Danocaster quite frequently at a now defunct guitar store in Nashville, where I once worked. He's the one who first told me about the TDPRI. I haven't seen him in person in years and years.

    My oldest friend here is @DDickens. He and I have known each other since about 1993. We lived on the same hall in college, and pledged the same fraternity at the same time. Became life-long friends. I haven't seen him in person in several years, but next time we see each other in person it will be as if no time has passed.

    As mentioned by @Jared Purdy, some of us have met over a cold one. It seems to me it was organised by @Geoff738

    There were some others in the Greater Toronto Area who came downtown, whose names escape me. It was quite a while ago now. Too long! Just about time for it to happen again.
