    Joe Bonamassa in sydney tonight

    Just went to see Joe tonight. Didn't know much about him but a friend from work arranged the tickets so I was interested. I like blues guitar so I figured it would be ok. He did two sets, one acoustic and the other electric. The acoustic was full of various styles and good fun. The electric set...

    Does Listen To Me pre-date Tommy?

    How long have you had your guitars?

    I have 13 guitars. One I bought in 1978. The rest in the last ten years with my favourites in the last 5 years. I guess I've become more selective and spent a bit more to get the right guitar.

    Searching for sugarman

    A great lost artist story with a happy ending. The Sugarman is the coolest guy and one wonders how far he might have gone if he had the recognition in the 70s. Strange that he developed such a cult following in South Africa but apparently unheard in the states in the 70s. I remember when...

    So we are having a heat wave in OZ and genius thinks, I'll buy one of those portable air-con units. Fair enough. So I get home and I admit, I've had a few beers, turn on air con, fall asleep. Just woken up. 36C. Forgot to duct the exhaust outside. WTF. I didn't mean to do that. Why can't...

    Mike Bloomfield

    Love 'em but most rock and roll guitarists struggle to put a sentence together. Mike Bloomfield articulate, literally and as a guitarist. Gone far to soon :( Mike Bloomfield Interview - YouTube

    How many guitars do I really need?

    I, like many people here, have many guitars. 14 at the moment but it'll be back down to 13 soon enough. I've often asked myself, "How many do I really need?" and as I get older (hopefully) "What will be my last guitar?" Even when I try to rationalise I still come up with about 6-7...

    NGD: Custom Shop SG standard VOS

    I thought I had every guitar I could want. So why do I continue to look at eBay? Anyway, a CS SG came up at a price I couldn't ignore. Outstanding condition, September 2012 build. The only issue was that the owner had changed a few things: Replaced the standard tuners with Kluson double rings...

    Where the Gibson nitro smell?

    One of the most evocative things about playing an old guitar is that nitro smell when you open the case. Nitro Fenders still have it, why not Gibsons?
