    Taking on a full hour (+) of solo live stream later next week. A major escalation of my musical endeavors. My old telecaster will be well represented next Thursday evening, and it will undoubtedly serve me well, as it always has.

    One time I had this gig lined up for a trio I fronted, and my then-bass player had his girlfriend call me telling me that he'd "gotten into some bad chicken" (he was a drunk) and wouldn't be making the gig. I had a drummer lined up for the night who I'd never worked with before.

    I called the venue and explained the situation, and to save face, offered to do a one-man show, just me and my guitar, for free.

    I was sure he'd turn down the offer, but he didn't.:(

    Someone slipped a one-dollar bill into my guitar case that night, and I've held onto that George Washington ever since, to remind me to stay humble

    Break a leg! :)

    Thanks, but at my age, I'm more likely to break a hip.

    This is a solo gig, so John Backlund's girlfriend would have to call John Backlund to tell him "he'd gotten into some bad chicken".

    What then?

    Nice, but you have to put a Backlund guitar or two on the poster.
