    if you search for "Adrian Smith" on youtube (Iron Maiden), he does a guitar school session, where he's explaining his warmup exercises and stuff. He's playing a tele for a lot of the segment. Face-melting metal, on a tele. Metal and Teles: two of my favorite things.

    Saw Bill live here in London in the room above a small suburban pub, audience of around 80 people. Absolutely awesome performance all the way through, and of course he finished with the extended HRL exhibition. Might be the best gig I ever went to! And after the gig, he comes out to the bar, clutching the Coalburner, and the first thing he says is "anybody want try my guitar?" What a gent!

    I saw Bill do that live in Albany NY earlier this year. He is flat out amazing and a real nice guy to boot. Stayed after the show and signed autographs for a long time.

    But those weak sounding pickups are the reason the telecaster is a great instrument. Higher output pickups, mind you a more modern sound, are not going to be as versatile. The higher output pickups are more mid-rangey and less twangier. They are louder than the low output pickups, though. Think and listen thru your own ears.

    Bill Kirchen isn't just an awesome guitarist, he's an amazing entertainer too, imagine having to learn all those riffs and changes and shout them up as you go!

    I've never seen someone play so good and have so much fun at the same time.
    Bill Kirchen you're awesome (and the band too.)
    Mistermullens, thanks for posting that.
