    This appearance by EVH has the makings of something remarkable; I hope he acquits himself well and is prepared.

    As much as I love EVH, I would never want to hear that. Just because you play guitar, it doesn't mean you know how to speak. I've never seen a single interview / video with the guy that would make my want to listen to him ramble on.

    Same with other celebs I've seen. Quite often, their speaking persona ruined the image I had in my head.

    I know what you mean. I've heard Eddie speak on a few occasions (NAMM events) and it was a disaster both times. He was clearly under the influence then. I don't know what his present level of sobriety or clarity is and so I think that this event at the Smithsonian could go either way.

    It should be interesting . . .

    I love ed. I just hope it's not the same tired story about how Al played guitar and he started on drums and then they switched and then he painted a guitar. I agree with musicman and hope he has something prepared.

    I have no use for Gene or KISS anymore. His greed is too much of a turn off.



    I hear his KISS Tribute band is doing pretty good.

    Finally, a convenient event! I work across the street from the Museum building. I mean literally across the street - I could hit it with a rock. Thanks for the heads up, I'll stop by Monday and try for tickets. The last time I attended a Smithsonian event there was the panel and jam in connection with the Blue Guitars exhibit. Hearing from some of the most accomplished luthiers in the world followed by a jam with Martin Taylor and Steve Howe was something I'll never forget!

    EDIT: Damn - sold out. I signed up for the wait list.

    Could be fine, could be a fiasco. Somehow I'm skeptical that he's as articulate as Bob Benedetto (the Blue Guitars talk) or Les Paul (another great Smithsonian talk I saw).

    Jon, when I signed up for the wait list, I asked for two tics. I need a miracle! ;) But if I get one, do you want the second tic?

    Thanks for thinking of me, I may be if you get lucky and don't have a huge EVH fan who wants one.
