  1. Have you seen the version Jon did with Todmobile? Absolutely spine tingling!!
  2. Mike Oldfield, Far Above The Clouds from TB III, hairs standing up, shivers down my spine, and tears of Joy......every.....single ....time. When that 1st bell hits...its like a punch in the chest! I must have heard this thousands of times since 1998, its even been the ring tone on my phone for the last 5 years. I honestly believe this is the most entrancing, inspiring piece of musical art I have ever experienced.
  3. Very much this, and if I recall correctly, a one time member here too.
  4. I am a muppet, I just looked at my 'Planet Wave' cables, as mentioned on page 1...and they are Cordial ones, but in same shade of green as a planet wave one I had years ago. I can recommend Cordial as per my 1st post lol!
  5. CD of Jethro Tull's 'Crest Of A Knave' from the 1980's as my ancient torrent download sounds fecking awful!
  6. Saw Stonebroken supporting Cheap Trick a couple of years back at the O2 Forum Kentish Town, they sounded excellent, clear and loud, you could hear every word being sung and feel every bass note. When Cheap Trick came on I reckon the sound engineer just maxxed everything and ran for the hills!! Without doubt the worst show I have ever watched, even with my earplugs in it was painful, I had no idea what songs were being played, I went outside about halfway through and I swear there were more people out there. Only stayed till the end cos my mate is a Cheap Trick fanboi and we had travelled together.
  7. I've 3 planet waves cables with green molded plugs that I bought about 12 years ago, I had no idea what I was buying at the time, but they just keep going, by comparison one of the guitarist was grumbling at last rehearsal as one of his leads was playing up again, he only got it back in May...and the one in his pedal board is a straight out jack with 45 degree bend in it where he kicked it by mistake!! I might offer to get him some OBBM custom leads
  8. When I use a pick I use these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Plectrum-Dava-Grip-Tip-Pack/dp/B00154OJOI/ref=asc_df_B00154OJOI/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310836174627&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10875880223605670905&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1006933&hvtargid=pla-540481960535&psc=1&th=1&psc=1 The rubberised insert means they don't slip out of my fingers and they seem to last for ages, the pointy bit gently rounds off after a few months or so.
  9. Barefaced 2 x10 cab, simply the best piece of music gear I have ever bought. It replaced an Eden 410xlt, sounds better and weighs less than 1/3 of the Eden. It is without doubt the mutts nutts!!
  10. Love the colour of the red, and a proper dark fretboard too, just needs a black pickguard and its perfect.
  11. Happens to me sometimes, I just put it down to me being rubbish 😉 I usually glare at a guitarist and they think it was them played a bum note
  12. Was playing Exit Stage Left in the car yesterday, normally I'm a huge fan of live albums, but this one just doesn't 'do it' for me, feels flat and bland. Doing a cross thread mashup, played some of Yessongs in car today...now THAT is a live album!!!! Starship Trooper is IMMENSE!!!!
