    Your 1st guitar

    late 70's, made in Korea, my dad bought this for $35. Later I found out he bought it for himself, and when he couldn't figure it out handed it down to me. Frets are almost done, but it seems wrong to put any money into it. I have already spent more that it's original value replacing the tuning...

    I learned of Frank Ocean via the Afghan Whigs' cover of Love Crimes. It led me back to the source material, which is really good stuff. looking forward to SNL on the west coast

    Most perfectly realized rock album ever?

    odd - DSOTM has always been "the perfect album, except for that one song" I always thought "Money" was a crappy song the first time i heard it, and I still do. a couple of perfect albums for me: Afghan Whigs - Gentlemen AC/DC - Highway to Hell Van Halen - I The Cure - Disintegration

    Favorite Unknown or Underrated 80's Band

    Concrete Blonde - it's a shame they are mostly known as the "Joey" band, because their two albums that came out in the 80's were terrific. Hoodoo Gurus - just fun guitar rock from Australia. Mars Needs Guitars a great album. So was Blow Your Cool.

    Goofy looking dudes with great voices!

    the first time i saw Screaming Trees (early 90s), Mark Lanegan was so skinny he was pretty effectively hiding behind the microphone stand. Then came this booming growl of a voice. Incongruent, but flat out awesome. 9z6_zqk7V10

    Eric Johnson - Ah Via Musicom - 1990 - Where You There?

    I was about 20 when that album came out. i had heard Cliffs of Dover, and is was something special for sure. I saw him open for Joe Satriani, and spent the break wondering why the hell Satch would have someone THAT strong setting the bar every night. Satch came out and killed it as well...

    AIC: Dirt

    me too. my first intro to Smashing Pumpkins, too. I bought the Soundtrack and just played the hell out of it, then pretty much went through the catalogues of every artist on the soundtrack. Jar of Flies is the only EP to make my desert island disc list.

    Best music films and/or Rockumentaries?

    I quite enjoyed Flight 666 (Iron Maiden). also, Soul Power was interesting - it was about the concert featuring James Brown that was set up as part of the Ali / Foreman fight in Zaire in 1974.

    Black Country Communion (Bonamossa content)

    I rather liked the first album. It got a little self indulgent towards the end, but for the msot part, it's just good, straight ahead rock.
