So, apparently I'm into falconry now...White Falconry, that is.
It seems I had a birthday last week and this little sweetheart came flying into the coop!
It plays like a dream and the FilterTrons sound amazing.
This guy is pretty funny.
He does metal versions of non-metal songs. Though, he does remakes of some songs that are pretty straight-up rock songs.
Anyway, he does all the instruments and vocals.
Here are a few of the more humorous ones:
Perhaps my favorite I've seen him do:
This past Sunday evening a lady had a serious motorcycle accident directly across the street from my house. She actually died the next day in the hospital, but the accident that killed her occurred not 100 feet from my house.
She ran her Harley into a power pole and flew/tumbled about fifty...
I hardly watch television, anymore. But, this one goes way back to the old Carol Burnett Show.
The backstory is that Tim Conway told a different elephant story during the actual taping of the show than what the cast had heard during dress rehearsal. So, this is their first time hearing it...
So, I stopped into the local music store where I always shop to pick up a rack-type guitar stand today.
It's in a state of decline. The manager they hired a couple of years ago left. He was a high-energy guy who was really making headway to bring in good product. Before him, their pedal...
So, we've all heard of Spinal Tap.
The primary lineup consisted of Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) on lead guitar, Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) on bass, and David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean) on lead vocals and rhythm guitar.
Here's a brief peek, to remind and entertain you:
So far, so...
Today, the whole family went to an 1812 fair and battle re-enactment. There were a lot of cool displays and exhibits, including a couple of blacksmiths doing demonstrations.
I met this wonderful gentleman who was playing some period songs, though not with an 1812 era guitar. As you may...
So, I haven't been in the gigging band for awhile. I've been playing other venues.
But, I got an email from the female vocalist/keyboardist from the old band asking me if I'd play for a short, 40 minute gig next month with the rest of the old team.
Well....SURE!!! It didn't take a...
So, last weekend was my first attempt in my life at playing golf - or "Cow-Pasture Pool," as I call it. Aside from using a putter at the mini-putt, I have never even held a golf club. I also think a golf ball would be great to use in Death Match Ping Pong!
Anyhoo, my son invited me down to...
I ran across this and thought of all you Orange amp fans.
I know it's not rock, but, seriously...Tina is the queen of female vocalists. Okay, maybe Aretha and her share thrones...yeah, Aretha is vocal royalty, too.
This amp is not on ebay, yet. But, it will be soon.
This is a Washburn VGA 30 amplifier. It belongs to a friend of mine who will put it on eBay in the next week, or so. I will post a link to the auction when he does. I am posting this now with his permission to generate a little...
Alrighty, in another thread we're discussing Gibson vs. Epiphone.
I think we should discuss something that really matters...like which is better: French toast or pancakes!
Step up and vote, boys and girls. Breakfast is depending on YOU!
