    POLL: The WORST thing to wear at a gig? (What's the worst you've seen?)

    Gotta be big enough for shoulder pads. If it fits without them- poser

    Rest in Peace Paul Chapman

    My first exposure to UFO was Mystery Train on the radio, then asking my guitar teacher to teach it to me. Still love No Place to Run. Sad day. I’ll listen to it on my way to work. RIP.

    Guitarists that affected the way of playing guitar

    Do I not see Eric Johnson on the list? Not my playing so much but a lot of players influenced by his style.

    First new Alcatrazz studio album in 34 years - "Born Innocent"

    Yngwie was on fire in those days, I’ll have to check out the new stuff but don’t expect anyone to measure up to some of the stuff he was pulling off.

    Free--All Right Now LIVE

    I love this stuff. I do wish we’d gotten more from Free and agree they were better, I can’t imagine not having all of Bad Co’s stuff that I also love.

    What five guitarists have influenced you the most?

    Jimmy Page Jeff Beck Jimi Hendrix Billy Gibbons SRV Way more than that though, honorable mentions to Yngwie Malmsteen for added speed through mostly failed attempts to play his stuff, Ace Frehley, David Grissom, Robin Trower. Did I mention I’m bad at lists?

    The Black Crowes reunion

    Fuzz Machine is pretty cool, but the Crowes at their best are way better than the sum of their parts. I have a couple Marc Ford discs, Rich Robinson, haven’t heard anything that touches the Crowes as a band. I have some instant live cds of live shows and they’re better than any official live...

    What's that one riff you struggle with?

    And the vibra-slap!

    What's that one riff you struggle with?

    Trying to get My Sharona up to speed. Same with I Will Survive by Cake. I can do the hard part but it’s not consistent and it needs to be dead on every time. Every time I pick up a guitar I run through it a few times.

    Last concert before this mess?

    Eric Johnson 3/11 Center Stage. Pretty much the day before the serious lock down talk got going. We were on the back row and we’re able to leave lots of seats between people.

    When dialing in your tone, what is your fav riff to know you got it right

    Gotta have squawk, no particular riff but maybe think Large Time by ARS. Ok, sometimes I use that riff.

    David Grissom Live CD upcoming...

    No Nasty Dogs and Funky Kings, so sad. Surprised it’s only 8 songs, but still looking forward to it.

    Should I use more gain?

    For me, yes more drive. A lot of what I like about drive is sustain. You have a jazzy style though so I wouldn’t go too crazy. An MXR comp set at the classic 9 and 3 o’clock works almost like an overdrive with a nice volume boost and more sustain. Not on all the time, for emphasis/dynamics.

    Neal Schon plays TOO fast

    I saw them recently at a baseball stadium outdoor gig and it was nearly impossible to make out the notes he was play. Went to the bathroom and, voila, I could hear his solos. I was thinking he needs to slow it down a bit because it was pointless in that environment to play all those notes no one...

    What's your Musical Heritage?

    I have to wonder if it matters. I was adopted sonno idea about heritage but neither parent had any musical leanings (adopted) but I loved the guitar from an early age and was drawn to music in general. So environment had nothing to do with it other than my adopted sister having some musical...
