    Just wanted to say a mighty big hello to all. I found this forum weeks ago while doing some research online for some various effects. I have already learned a ton so thanks to all.

    Mainly I play a Guild Starfire IV (Westerly made) through a 73 Super Reverb.

    Went out to Madison Heights, Berkley, Royal Oak and Wayne State last week to see my stepdaughter. Although I-75 and other roads were potholed & under construction, the town still has some "stuff": Go Red Wings and greetings to TGP!

    Yeah, the roads really suck here. But, it's a great music town. I work in Royal Oak.

    Peace!

    One of the greatest places I ever played in was just north of the Ren Center across the street from a foundry called The Soup Kitchen. Great blues, great beers & chow, and a vibe like the best clubs in New Orleans.

    Man, the Soup Kitchen. Such a shame that place isn't still around. I'm a blues nut and unfortunately I was too young for the hay day there. Sucks the Blues isn't as prevalent as it used to be here in Detroit. I miss the days of endless Jam sessions everywhere.

    Welcome fellow Detroiter. Check the schedule on my web site and stop out sometime. Make sure to introduce yourself.


    I had the dubious honor of playing the swan song night.

    Peace,
    Duffy
