I don't think I've ever seen you wear a ball cap before. Love the song But have one suggestion: "Leave your six string at the house" (get it? Instead of six gun?).

This is another. We also discussed ASCAP/BMI and how it's destroying live music all over the United States.

As a musician, I for one do not believe that either organization is doing anything but ill for 95% of the working musicians in the United States over these tactics. I do not understand why there is every incentive for venue owners and operators to be offered canned vs. live music. One by one venues that we play at, where we hope to polish our craft, are being strongarmed and shut down all over the United States. It seems to me that over the long-term, the same people that do this are going to kill the future geese that lay golden eggs for them. If they truly represented music and musicians as they claimed, there would be incentive, not dissuasion via these excessive fees for venues to have live music. I fully support their mission in protecting the copyrighted material as recorded by the original artists, but to destroy music scenes and shut down venues over excessive and unrealstic fees in these trying economic times does little for me, or anyone else that I know that does, or wants to play live music in public, be they covers or original material. (and I suppose it doesn't matter at this point: They've already swept through and worked to shut down most of the venues in my area. I hope the same thing doesn't happen in your town. Peace, God Bless, and Good Luck!)

One more link: As of late I've been preoccupied with the political scene as it were. I have this issue with the Lacey Act. I think the Gibson Raid debacle is secondary to the fact that if this law is enforced across the board, it's going to put tens to hundreds of thousands of people out of jobs while killing manufacturing, repair, and retail of music instruments in the United States. The DOJ claims they don't want to target owners, but let the owner beware...as soon as you sell your guitar, and exchange it for money...you're crossing into the commercial domain. (And I still haven't found a soul out there who knows how to fill out a Lacey Act Declrations Form. Oh well. I can still hope, can't I?)

I got quoted in Guitar Player Magazine! (Alex Lifeson on the cover, page 21.) This has happened 3 times this year. I must be quotable or just having a great run of luck! http://www.guitarplayer.com/ .

Last night I was interviewed for the final Amador Music Hub blog by Gwen Bohdan. A couple of videos were shot. This is one of them.

This is way too funny! But the real question is...if you were stranded on a desert island and could only choose one guitar, would it be the Firebird X, the SG, the LP custom, or ?

There's something I don't undestand about Google+. I have a separate account...it forces this when I'm on another computer. I know I'm being stupid about this....grrrr...
