Strange, two days ago bfitz posted as to why it lost it's popularity... and here i am!

thought i'd check in, i admit, it's been a long time for me.

i joined in january 2007 - its been a long time... 22 then, 35 now!

i too remember the busy times, i used to check in on the library at uni to get my fix in the day and obsess over all of this!

i'm back to play a bit more regularly and have just pulled the trigger on a Matamp King Street - picking it up on saturday, which is why i figured i'd check the forum out... it's really sad to see that it's gone the way it has...


Billy, how are the allens? hows frank? i remember listening to a cover of "honkey tonk woman" on your myspace around 10 years ago...

We just celebrated our 31st anniversary last November. We did a whole XXX anniversary year the year before.

Frank is doing ok, but he was down for the count for quite a while last year after helping move drums for his other band down a flight of stairs and totally misjudging where the landing was and tore his quad. What a mess... He's doing better but nowhere near 100% and can't lift his Marshall anymore so he's been playing a Crate with two small 1X12 Crate cabs. Not a sound I would choose but...

And I bought a new guitar. Zemaitis Dragonheart...

looking good on the new guitar front. how does it stack up to the tele's?

i seem to remember frank playing a jcm900, can't say i'd opt for a crate with all of the choices out there today...

31 years is insane! good to hear it's still goin'
