  1. If you've never seen it, it's very much 'of its time', but it's all tongue in cheek and great fun and hilarious. And the dancing out of time during the chorus.....And Eddie's solo 🧑🧑🧑
  2. Nice, congratulations!!! I agree about satin necks too, I have a Yamaha and Ibanez both satinπŸ‘
  3. Yes , that's just stupid, I don't do delivery any more but always leave a card if you leave a package somewhere, it's only common courtesy not to mention proper process. Glad it's OK πŸ‘
  4. XP1 is the code to replace signatures because of Covid restrictions
  5. From me, to you. The Beatles
  6. I think the magic of Van Halen ( and I loved both singers eras) was that, even without the revolutionary solos, they had great, 4 minute, catchy memorable songs, the guitar wizadry was just the extremely wonderful cream on top of an exquisite cake. Sure, many shredders came in his wake and created some great music, but Eddie did it within the song and did what other widdlers did in a 5/6 minute instrumental in a twenty second burst , and that meant a lot more. I particularly loved his little touches and embellishments, witness the playing on 'When It's Love' live, just beautiful. RIP, smiling man.
  7. Sheryl Crow was amazing. The bass player ( who's a decent singer too ) sounded especially great using an Epiphone Jack Casady into a little Eden rig.
  8. Nope, made in Mexico the PMT link has photos of the headstock rear.
  9. Same here, I purposely ordered the ones listed as IN stock. They weren't, although full marks to them they emailed me to tell me and I got a refund straight away. Tried again two weeks ago, still out of stock. On ebay they cost a fortune unless you're happy to get from USA
  10. Yes, always looking / listening for new stuff I like. There's a fair bit I don't but that's ok, the great thing about being 51 is I'm not limited to liking stuff just because it's popular/cool. Not that age should be a factor in this, but it seemed to be when I was younger. I like that trying new music is easier than ever, I do still like to purchase my favourites in physical form though.
  11. I think this is why we never made it big, our music was miserable as bloody sin but we were all well adjusted , happy , played with smiles on our faces, and really good friends who were having fun.
  12. πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜† The crowning moment of my 'career' in an originals band ( slow Sabbath like riffs mostly) was a gig in Southend when, after several minutes of a song that had a sludgy , D tuned, grinding intro , there was a brief moment of silence, and some wag in the audience shouts out "Cheer up!!!!" We fell about laughing, and I believe we crammed in a Thunder cover version later to lighten the mood πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†
  13. I live about a mile from Stanford le hope, cannot imagine where it's been sitting....???!!!!! Good lick hope all goes wellπŸ‘
  14. @MoJo, I still have the 414 I bought off you. It's still great. Solidly gigged for 4 years, never missed a beat, now I'm not in a band it's still the bass I record bits with.
