    Ouch! They need to not do any recent publicity photos! I wonder if "dirty deeds" now means changing their diapers? As long as they can still rock, that's what matters.

    And your post just made a 35 year-old smile. Thanks!

    I have to admit, my parents were old hippies and listening to their albums growing up in the 80's was so much better than what was on the radio at the time!
    [/quote] I'll give you the reason I had to smile. Remember this was 1970.I'll just give the facts and you can put the story together.
    1. 18 year old boy
    2. 19 & 17 year old sisters of dubious character
    3. Woodstock album
    4. playing said album at girls parents home while parents were gone
    5. inebriated father coming home just as Country Joe McDonald is going for audience participation
    6. 19 year old girl not telling father it was her album
    7. 18 year old boy taking one for the team
    8. inebriated father making huge deal out of nothing
    When you add 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8= big trouble for 18 year old boy

    Ha, I hope they were worth it! When I was about 14-15, it was MY dad who turned me on to Country Joe's "Fish" cheer. My, how things have changed!

    Haha, when I read the title of this thread I thought it was how the game guitar hero inspired people to play the guitar...

    Most of my "guitar hero's" play strats. I still want a strat someday when I have the disposable income to aquire a nice one. I owned a squire strat for awhile but was really dissapointed in it, it was given away to friend. The SG just has that magic for me. Admittedly it was the look that inticed me, but once I played one, I was sold. Nothing else quite compares.

    My guitar hero was the guy that sold me my first SG for $150.00............. because that's all HE paid for it. 8)
