Where to start man? Fuck this particular venue! I took the opportunity to catch a gig being played by none other than Slaughter with Great White headlining. First off, I got tix last minute as I wasn't sure if the current line up of each group would be worth seeing. Tix were 40 bucks which is highwa...

Dude, I know this slide is nothing special or out there. But at this point, it is very much so to me. It was killer finding someone to print the original. Here's the a photo of my print, hoping it will look rad framed. Enjoy peeps

Re: Carvin X100B

Does it have as much gain as you want? Honestly, it's hard to tell. I'm still messing with the EQ adjustments. The cleans are just on another level, super bright and plenty of pop and I was using a Fender prior so that says a lot. It has the gain you just gotta get to where it's not lost in the bot...

My search for one of these bad boyz came to end....wanted the grey carpet series from the early 90s with hot rod tuners and boost. Although I can't say I'm displeased with this one given this was built just before those. This particular model is from 88' and it came with the original channel pedal. ...

Recently came across this slide. It is a kodachrome slide that I need to have printed. Not to familiar in this field, but considering it's the original processesd slide with the handwritten dates. I have to assume I'm the only one in possession of this print. Hoping the print is decent size to frame.

Am I wrong or did Vinnie swipe that jacket from Dana from back in the Invasion daze on that interview? I swear Dana was wearing that leopard jacket during their hosting of Heavy Metal music half hour on MTV back in 86'.... I keep tripping on that every time I see that interview come up.

The Invasion invaded on that debut. Though the unmixed ASG would have been close had they released it with the harmonies and solos, such a heavy thick bottom how it's supposed to sound.
