    thinline yes ( squire pro tone series )

    player - not knocker ( lol ).. or Vai.....

    some very famous musicians hold him in very high esteem.... One pretty famous band (with 100m plus record sales) has done cover versions of several of his songs, and regularly play his songs live .....


    Any ideas ?

    This is a total stab in the dark, but your hints make me want to guess - Richard Thompson?

    LOL, I'm quite sure Mark would have loved to still have that much hair in '93! Hell, in 1980 for that matter.
