  1. I checked in to treatment last on a Wednesday. I remember meeting with my doctor...must have been a Friday. On Sundays, they offered a church service or a meditation class. He asked what I was planning. I told him I thought I would check out the meditation. He said, "You ought to go check out the Sunday service. You never can tell who is going to show up to play but I bet you will know more than a couple over your stay." That Sunday I walk in to see Tommy Womack doing a sound check. This is a song about his struggles with trying to stay sober and having one good day with his wif
  2. Holy fuck...Yoakam's drummer. As Tom Waits says, "Someone needs to chain that boy up". WOW

    The title track from his first record is when I got hooked. Talk about painting a picture. Always amazed me that he produced that first record.
  4. I don't think I've told this.....if so, sorry for the repeat. I was in treatment at Cumberland Heights in Nashville. They have a program that is sponsored by The Grammys, called MusiCares. They work to provide treatment for anyone in the music industry. Artist, songwriters, roadies, managers, etc. Because of this, they have connections with a LOT of musicians who come back to talk, sing at the Sunday service and work with people in the music program. I was lucky enough to get into that music program, run by a brilliant musician and fantastic human named John McAndrew. The music p

    Been a huge fan for years but get tired of his constant attempts at what my brother calls, "Yuck and Pluck".......Buckin' Horse song is a prime example of that. But still, he has written some classics, and at the very, very top for me is "Lynnville Train". Towards the end, he gives us this....is he reaching for gun...is he going to shot them? Shot himself? Steel wheels scream, the whistle blows,His heart is breakingShe steps onto the platform, her new love by her sideHe reaches in his coat, his had is shakingThe time has finally come, this really is goodbye Then the mood completel
  6. I have a Epi 339 that I LOVE playing. I use it mostly in a group that plays a lot of Elvis tunes (lead singer sounds JUST like Elvis), Buddy Holly, Tom Jones, Bill Withers, Hollies music. I'm thinking about replacing the pickups. I've never replaced pickups in any guitar as I've always been happy and would rather buy new toys/guitar/pedals than swap out pups, but I think the time is right. Right now, I'm leaning towards Classic 57s. Anyone have any other ideas/suggestions? Also, what else will I need to change when I do this? Caps/pots? Right now this guitar has a coil splitting
  7. Damn Foggy. That dude is clean. I need to find something like that to just leave in open tuning for Stones songs. A buddy found a MIM Thinline for $75 at a pawn shop recently. He put $70 in it on a setup and it plays like a dream. I've NEVER found any guitar worth a shit at a pawn shop.
  8. I would still go get a couple of penicillin shots and bath in bleach, just to be sure.
  9. Ha. The dude lives about an hour from Muscle Shoals so you may have a point.
  10. Holeyboard makes this that is prob a little heavier. Built for a wah pedal but would work for your tuner. https://www.holeyboardpedalboards.com/product/holeyboard-3-footpedal-module/
  11. Sadly, he lives in Alabama. Road trip?
  12. Pete Thorn has a really cool set up.
  13. I started asking questions as soon as I saw the picture. I knew he 'had a couple of guitars', but fuck me. Gold Top: "My soulmate. A 1980 with maple neck. Had mini-humbuckers but I completely rebuilt the electronics to hot rod it for my high gain addiction." WTF are Granger amps?: "They are clones hand made by Curt Granger in Birmingham, AL. The left is a JCM800 clone and the other is a Soldano SLO clone. They fuckin' smoke." Gotta know about that little red V: "Kid guitar by some Gibson sub group. Tuned to open G." What is the amp with the V logo: "V Boutiuque
  14. Check out this romper room. Buddy just moved into a new house and got good toys all set up.
  15. I don't know if it will be heavy enough but Pedal Train sells these boosters to put on a board if you have a pedal you need to elevate. Would this work? https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PedalBoost1--pedaltrain-pt-pb1-pedal-booster-single-3.5-inch-by-5.5-inch?mrkgadid=3331289246&mrkgcl=28&mrkgen=gpla&mrkgbflag=0&mrkgcat=guitars&acctid=21700000001645388&dskeywordid=92700046934877545&lid=92700046934877545&ds_s_kwgid=58700005283398557&ds_s_inventory_feed_id=97700000007215323&dsproductgroupid=373037010929&product_id=PedalBoost1&prodctry=
  16. STAB! Don't know what it does...maybe like ATTACK but I love STAB!
  17. Testify. This one should have been called "The Ashgrove Blues". Got to see him on this tour with Los Straitjackets. Just a fantastic tone on that strat.
  18. That reminds me of another one. Alice wrote this one with Bernie Taupin around Alice's mental health issues. Just a fantastic record. My brother ran in to Bernie Taupin at a radio interview and he said, "Mr. Taupin....I really enjoyed your work with....." Taupin kind of kindly nods and starts to move past him.... "Your work with Alice Cooper on 'Welcome To My Nightmare'." Taupin turns around and talks to my brother for about 20 minutes. What a great album. Davey Johnston and Dee Murray from Elton's band. also play on the record. Plus, Marcy Levy (Clapton's background singer) sing
  19. My two favorites are Red Headed Stranger and this one. "Let the children boogie"
  20. 1995 Fresh Air/Terry Gross interview with McMurtry. https://www.npr.org/2021/04/02/983783988/remembering-larry-mcmurtry-a-writer-who-helped-define-the-american-west
