    Linda Ronstadt, Frank Irwin Center, 1979-80.
    It’s big cavernous venue, but Linda and her brilliant band sounded incredible!
    The mix was loud, clear, and commanding!
    What’s the latest start (from the advertised time) you saw a major act have?

    Unsurprisingly guns and roses in1991. About an hour late. And Axl chucked a temper tantrum.

    What band was way better than you were expecting when you saw them live. I have three. U2 on the rattle and hum tour (I went for the b b king support and stayed for the main act). Black sabbath heaven and hell who I thought would be excellent but were outstanding. And jethro Tull in 2011. Again. I thought they’d be great. But much more then that.

    What about you?

    What about me? Oh I see... :oops:

    For me it would've been Pink Floyd on their Delicate Sound of Thunder tour at the Sydney Entertainment Centre. I had the seat immediately behind the sound guy, so I was in the sweet spot for all the quadrophonic stuff, plus an unobstructed view of the stage. I doubt I will go to a better concert again.

    What are you like at creative writing? Songs, poems, stories etc...

    I suck at it but that doesn’t stop me. Just like everything else I enjoy.

    Do you publicly perform any songs you’ve written?

    Yes I do.
    I play my original songs in three bands, all trios, BTW.
    I do about four of my songs.
    How many songs have you written?

    10. Counting one co-authored, and two still in the works.

    Is there a special person from your past, who still "stirs you soul", so to speak?

    Yup, really good friend actually, he just died at 32 at the first of this month. He got on drugs real bad, and had "track" that got septic and got into his blood and his dad had to pull the plug... horrible tragedy, considering he was the main person that ever really taught me anything about guitar and was an inseparable friend for about 10yrs.

    So, how many

    My computer--youtube. I'm too old, too cranky, and too tired to go out and see a show. But then again, I'd break that rule to go to Red Rocks.

    Funny, I was thinking about the last time I actually paid to go out and see someone--it was Jorma in Trenton, NJ, a lifetime ago. I just googled it to get some sense of how long ago it was and found that this. It was the show!

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003P73NB8/?tag=tdpri-20

    I wasn't very familiar with his music. But my buddy loves him and insisted I go with him. It was completely enjoyable and pushed me into fingerpicking (which I am still terrible at).

    So two questions: Are you a Jorma fan? How's your fingerpicking?

    Jorma who?
    I fingerpick pretty well. I learned on the banjo and applied some of the technique to guitar. I actually have trouble using a regular pick now.
    Do you prefer the older bluegrass or the modern stuff?

    Alas, I am not a bluegrass fan, at all.
    I don’t have a preference.
    What is your very favorite song?

    I futz around until I come up with something cool, or I have a lyric or melody pop in my head, or I have a concept for a piece (such as "Hmm, how would a piece in 11/4 with a bitonal key center of F major/Gb dorian sound?") or...

    I probably write too much though.

    What's a band you used to love that you now detest, or vice versa?

    When I was a kid, I loved Deep Purple.
    Now that “we” are not young, I really can’t listen to them.
    Are you a (musical) gear addict?

    Brother, I could open a guitar/pedal/amp store! I'm trying to reign it in, but I deal hunt, and just found a RK-5 pedal for a song, then a NU-X Cerberus pops up for less than half price. Just love different gear, and really digging the newer modeling gear.


    What is a pedal on your board that is Super Glued to the board??

    I prefer velcro ;)

    probably my homemade 9-knob, 4-switch fuzzbox. I'm a madman, I know!

    What did you think of the new spiderman movie?

    Is that the animated one? If yes, then I loved it. If no then I haven't seen it and probably would not like it.

    As a musician, do you project or cultivate an image? If you had to, what would it be?

    I’m a working player, but I’m also a (lazy) introvert, in an extrovert’s game.
    I project no image (maybe I’m a vampire, .... nah).
    I love to play, I really don’t like people looking at me when I do it.
    I know, boo hoo.
    Anyways, when I front bands, I do way more singing/playing than talking.
    I haven’t got a clue about image cultivation.
    If you gig, what is your favorite thing about it?
