This is hilarious (and a little sad). Thank you for this anecdote.Here's my time to shine - About 10 years ago I lived in central Illinois and posted a natural Fender MIM jazz bass on Craigslist for a reasonable price. Got a couple cash offers but one other offer stuck out. I received an email from the then-drummer (not original member) of Molly Hatchet looking to trade some signed merch and VIP passes to their upcoming show. I politely declined.
Isn't he from your corner of the world?True story: I once facilitated a vintage Gibson amp sale to none other than Joe Bonamassa-- conversed with him via email before he called my buddy and arranged to have it shipped out. He was super nice! Total gear nerd, and incredibly knowledgeable, as you'd expect.
Oh wow, you're in Potsdam!Sure is! I'm a little under 3 hours north of Utica, where he's from. It's a cold, desolate life.
Small world! Yep, I'm a prof at SUNY Potsdam for my day gig. I love Cuse-- the closest place to find fine dining!Oh wow, you're in Potsdam!
Yeah, that's up there. You're basically Canadian! For some reason I thought you were in Ithaca.
I'm originally from Syracuse. I thought that Watertown was "Upstate".....
It's funny, living in NYC, people refer to Westchester as 'Upstate'!!
