  1. I have been at gigs where the sound has been fantastic, then spoken to people that were at the same gig but sitting somewhere else and have said the sound was rotten. Venues can have different characteristics depending on where you plonk yourself.
  2. I am genuinely gutted about this. He was in the band that shaped my young life. I knew he was never going to play again but it still feels like something has been lost. I feel so sorry for him and his family. Their lives have been filled with sadness lately. At least he is at peace.
  3. Yup, as I say, its being rather pedantic to say the original line up was the one that made them famous
  4. What about Gillan and Glover? Ok, not wanting to be pedantic but everyone knows the classic line up of Purple.
  5. Rainbow is Ritchie Blackmore. Enough said. I went to see them and enjoyed it but there was not one original member apart from old men in tights himself. Rainbow have changed personnel regularly anyway.
  6. I have an old Status Elite bass that bore the marks of years and years of gigging. A few years ago, I stupidly decided to paint it to freshen it up. I now regret this and want to get the paint off. Does anyone know how to achieve this without ruining the paint underneath?
  7. I mean, I agree that generically they have a similar sound but rounds against flats, different pick ups etc. make a difference.
  8. You got the words to Red Barcheta wrong!
  9. I have three. They all sound quite different.
  10. As I said, the op. is a new member. Or at least hasn't posted much, so his point might seem original. He asked why people relic guitars? Which is a valid question to someone who hasn't heard it before. Just because you are sick of it, don't criticise others if they don't know that the subject has been talked about many times before. I see posts about what strings to use come up a lot but I don't moan about it. I can read new comments about the subject or, even better, I can scroll past.
  11. What you have to appreciate is there are new members who might not have seen the offending post. Then there are people like me who have been a member for a while but have not been on for a while for whatever reason. So when I see a new person asking which string to use, I will still give my opinion, not moan that this has been asked so many times. I think some folks need to chill and realise that some subjects are new to others.
  12. I think maybe a little bit of lawn feed wouldn't go amiss. It is looking rather tired in bits.
  13. Patina. Let's face it, there is a sizeable market for this kind of thing and its all a matter of taste.
  14. I certainly had harsh words. Our guitarist had a guy by the throat that sat his pint on our mixing desk!
