I do not get this either, although there was a time I did love gin and tonics!
I've only drank one and it was at that concert. I prefer beer and the odd Crown Royal.
Very entertaining concert though!
Used to close out our shows with this song!
I was at the pub with my friend the night before she and her girlfriend moved out of town. It was karaoke night and I got to close the night singing this song at her request! I had no idea she requested it until I heard " Ok for the last song of the night we have Shawn getting up here to sing Ace of Spades!"
Ahhh.... Good times... The crowd had a blast.
I also sang Conway Twitty's song called Hello Darlin'. YouTube it. It's great! My favourite karaoke song EVER!
We see them almost every time they come through - usually at the State Theatre. It's a nice small venue, the drinks can be expensive, but they pour heavy. We've seen everyone from My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult, to Lita Ford there.
I forgot about My Life With The... My roommate in the 90's had one of their CD's. I dug it!
No need, I remember. Also Family Guy.....
Cool Raiyn! You have Anvil coming in March!
Dammit! I grew up on this! Mom loved (loves) Conway, and Dad loves Johnny Cash. What's a Canadian kid to do?
Hmmmmm.... Maybe thishttps://youtu.be/owq7hgzna3E or thishttps://youtu.be/_VcswhBy9tk
Sorry about the Amtrak thread O.P.!
They're kind of hit or miss.... Depends on the rehab cycle I guess. We've been to awesome shows from them and one's that have been totally shitty.
The Reverend ALWAYS delivers!
The Dammed is coming through in May as well on their (jeezus!) 40th Anniversary Tour.
Who'da thunk that some of those old punk acts would be alive 40 years later much less touring?
Got that for Rocksmith not long ago.....if you can play stuff like that you'll certainly have gigs....until all the boomers bite it that is.
I do wish the Reverend would visit Kelowna. They are tight and sooo entertaining!
There are some Joe Keithley (of DOA) signature guitars on sale at the Vancouver guitar show tomorrow. I was hoping to get down there but the weather has gone crazy and it's opening weekend at Whistler Mountain so traffic will be crazy plus I have a jam with some friends tomorrow afternoon.
It all makes sense now!
Lemmy was doing rock-a-billy all along!
TV Jones pickups kick
It occurs to me, that this might have something to do with my fascination with Fender offsets like the Mustang and Duo-Sonic..........
Toaster pickups are generally NOT humbuckers.
They get their name for resembling toasters in the 1940's/50's....in the same way that the p90 is called a soapbar. Rickenbacker made the first toasters.....and those pickups evolved into dearmond gold foils and on and on down to the pickups on your agile. The harm is a super cool guitar!!!
Most rick toasters are single coils....they do make humbuckers, but most folks associate the rick toaster sound with the single coils which are super bright, low output and all jangle. Your pickup looks like it's a pretty standard mini hb under a toaster top. What's the output like? If it's in the 4k range the coils are probably wound in parallel which is a much brighter janglier sound.
What's been the focus here has been the gretsch filtertron which is a super unique and odd humbucker. It's got very tall narrowly focused coils that are wound in parallel where Most humbuckers are wound in series. Soft attack, but bright and always a little gritty. Coils in series really makes a filtertron Rock!
Dave hunter has a super cool book on pickups that's totally worth a read.
