    Hi Everyone,
    I've been lurking for a long time, increasing my already sizeable GAS issues to new-found highs - I'm sure being a member will do nothing at all for that but, hopefully I'll be able to contribute a bit here and there...

    I'm currently using a Strat and Les Paul through a Mesa Lonstar classic and THD 2x12 with various pedals but do dabble with a goldtop deluxe and a wolfgang from time to time

    You guys are alot more learned than me on a lot of things and I look forward to picking many brains however, please forgive the noob questions when they come!

    Cheers
    Gavin

    Welcome Gavin! Both my parents were born and raised in Glasgow. I have far more family there than here in the States so I consider myself at least a partial, fellow Scotsman.

    I will try not to be jealous that you may have seen Biffy Clyro several times. I've been telling people they were going to be huge since Black the sky came out several years ago.

    Welcome! Oh, I guess one more thing.... Rangers or Celtic or other...none? I always try to keep up with who follows what clubs around here.

    Thanks for the welcome guys - I'm going to feel right at home here

    jhvox - you should try and make it over - Scottish is a state of mind.....or is it mind in a state :messedup

    rosscoep - I was born in Paisley, not far from Greenock at all. So when did you leave Scotland?

    ford - I have seen Biffy a couple of time now, most recently at Hamden stadium where they supported the chili peppers - and resolutely smoked them!

    DamianL - neither - being from Paisley originally I follow the mighty (or currently not so mighty) St Mirren

    teleblaster - you should make the journey, it's a great country - just don't buy any gear here!

    Thanks again guys - I feel most welcome! :BEER

    At eighteen months. My mom's family is from Edinburgh. My dad was a sailor stationed at Holy Loch in the early '60's. I went back in the early nineties. I loved the beauty of Edinburgh and the people of Glasgow. Edinburgh is a lot like San Francisco in terms of size and it is also built on hills. I am a dual citizen. Man couldn't I go for some fish n' chips, or a donor kabob?

    "Donor kabob" :confused:






    I'm not sure, I guess it depends who's donating the kabob....

    Donner Kebab, a true delicacy, often consumed after alchohol - with this and the deep fried Mars bar no wonder we're the heart attack capital of Europe:rolleyes:
