  1. I like "The Godfather" but my all time favorite mob movie is "Goodfellas".
  2. "Who's Next" is in my top 10 best classic rock albums. Thanks to the great piano work of Nicky Hopkins.
  3. I also have a "seatbelt" strap. Very comfortable.
  4. See it as a good investment, the value can only go up over the years.
  5. Did you try the Voodoo Lab "Sparkle Drive" ? Great for blues.
  6. Crate V3112T worth a look and goes for $480.
  7. The company must know that many people pay big bucks to get old beaten ones. Is it impossible to make it today with the same specs? Ibanez did with the AD-9, so why not Boss?
  8. Savoy Truffle is a funny one written whist hanging out with Eric Clapton in the '60s. At that time he had a lot of cavities in his teeth and needed dental work. He always had a toothache but he ate a lot of chocolates - he couldn't resist them, and once he saw a box he had to eat them all. He was over at my house, and I had a box of Good News chocolates on the table and wrote the song from the names inside the lid. I got stuck with the two bridges for a while and Derek Taylor wrote some of the words in the middle - 'You know that what you eat you are'. George Harrison I Me Mine, 1980
  9. I don't know if they used it on the guitars, but according to Recording The Beatles, they used two EMI / REDD RS61 tube line amps in series to grunge up the horns on that song. The session men were playing really well - there's nothing like a good brass section letting rip - and it sounded fantastic. But having got this really nice sound George turned to Ken Scott and said, 'Right, I want to distort it.' So I had to plug-up two high-gain amplifiers which overloaded and deliberately introduced a lot of distortion, completely tearing the sound to pieces and making it dirty. The musicians came up to the control room to listen to a playback and George said to them, 'Before you listen I've got to apologise for what I've done to your beautiful sound. Please forgive me - but it's the way I want it!' I don't think they particularly enjoyed hearing their magnificent sound screwed up quite so much but they realised that this was what George wanted, and that it was their job to provide it. Brian Gibson, engineer
  10. I think it's tonebender too, but only Sola sounds and Fulltone make copies of it and it's $$$! Could a Big Muff acheive that tone maybe?
  11. Screw that boring, hackneyed, repetitive, preachy bald has been. Screw 43,042 posters;)
