General Discussion / About That Football game.....
« on: February 01, 2015, 08:31:39 PM »
I think the Seahawks are going to hand Tom Brady his ass in a hat.  I have especially enjoyed the way two notorious cheaters like Belicheck and Brady have claimed ignorance over the under inflated balls, and the way Belicheck tried to write it off to atmospheric conditions that only deflated the Patriot's balls, and not the Colt's.  The Patriots may have enough going offensively to win, but their defense is never going to hold off the Seahawks offense, those guys are animals!  I just hope it's not another Super Bowl blowout that's over by halftime!  Speaking of halftime, how did Katy Perrty wind up as the entertainment?  Who the Hell figured America as a whole wanted to see her?  Not everyone watching the game is going to be a 15 year old girl! One can only hope that while she's lip synching  she does an Ashley Simpson.....DOH!  At least there would be some entertainment value to THAT!

General Discussion / BBC Reporting The Death of Jack Bruce
« on: October 25, 2014, 04:19:45 PM »
It was announced yesterday that Cream bassist Jack Bruce had died, then it was said to have been a hoax.  Today the BBC is saying that his publicist has confirmed his death, and on his FB page his family posted that he had in fact passed away.

Your Gigs / Ramona Bowl

Doing the Ramona Bowl tonight, bum leg and all. No, it's not a bowling alley, but ather an outdoor theater where the world famous Ramona Pagent has been held since God knows when.  Being the first day of summer, it's hotter than Hell here, so anything outside is going to be pretty rough.  Sound check is at 4:30, and we play at 6:oo...It'll still be awful damned hot!

We weren't going to do it this year in as much as they have a new guy booking it, and his big vision was to not use any of the acts frrom last years show.  The leader of one of the bands that was supposed to play in the French Quarter died, and so they asked if we'd take their slot on August 17th, so we'll be doing the festival after all.  This one's always a hoot, so I'm happy to be doing it again, but it's too bad someone had to die for it to happen............I guess.  :yay!:

My Super Champ that is.  The deal is this, the tripple triode tube, the 6C-10 has gone supernova, and even though it's as bright as the sun, it's not warm to the touch, and the glass around the bottom of it is as milky as can be, so it's safe to say it's shot to Hell.  I can't find one at CG, or any of the electronic shops around.  On-line they seem to think the tube is worth more than the amp.  Does anyone have a line on where to pick one of these up for a decent price?  The amp is still working, but the tone is pretty shitty, even when someone else plays through it.... ;)

I got an Android phone and figured out how to get here with it so I thought I would try to put up a post with it.  The keyboard is small and my hands are big so it's hard. I just noticed this thing has a microphone icon so that should make things a little easier.  Hey that's really cool I just talk away and it prints out whatever I say.  At long last my life won't be so very very hard!

It's here in town, up by the Ramona Bowl, home of the world famous Ramona Pagent, the area I refer to as "Pill Hill" as all the doctors in town live up there.  It's outside, so I'm taking a bigger amp than usual, and it should be a pretty good one.  Sound system and all that good stuff, so it should be an easy run.

Won't be around much today.....

General Discussion / "Linda's Song"
« on: May 12, 2014, 08:31:23 PM »

I wrote this, and then recorded it on her birthday.  The drums are out of my keyboard, and I syncronized two different percussion tracks together.  I'm playing the rest of the intstruments which consist of guitar, bass, keyboards, and the vocal.  I recorded it on an old Boss BR8, and then mixed it down on to a CD, and ripped it to mp3.  I'm currently working on a solo album, this is going to be one of the cuts.  At this point 4 songs are in the can.  Perhaps I'll finally paint my masterpiece.....

Your Gigs / Ron's Red Eye Saloon

We're down in Fallbrook tonight.  We haven't been down there in a while, about a year actually.  The management decided to have a D.J. and the first time it worked great.  Then the word got out and the next time all the bangers showed up and they had a full scale riot with about 80 people fighting, and all kinds of bang and gore, so the owner pulled the plug on music altogether.  (That made sense, didn't it?)  Anyway here it is the night before Easter and 4/20  to boot, so let the festivities begin.....I guess.  At any rate it'll be good to get out and blow the stink off.  I just wish it wasn't such a long drive back!

Other Musical Instruments / Picked Up A 50 Year Old Uke

It's an early '60s Roy Smeck soprano that was made by Harmony of Chicago.  Roy Smeck was considered to be the wizard of stringed instruments from the '20s through the '50s.  He was a pretty amazing cat, and many companies including Gibson featured Roy Smeck models.  Harmony figured they could sell a lot of ukuleles if they plastered his name on them, and they did!  This one is pretty much flawless, including the case.  Te fretboard shows a little bit of wear, but outside of that, there isn't a mar on it.  I got it for $60. and though as a player it might not be worth a whole bunch, I figure as an historical piece, it has it's merit!  It's cute as Hell, and it plays well!
