    I believe that is it. I had the opportunity to get a “rig rundown” in person with him a little over a year ago and he was running that set up.....exactly as you say.

    The only mods, he said, were that he replaced the speakers in the Fender amps from the stock 30w to 80w to handle the tour.

    OK so what type/color of pants should he have been wearing exactly?
    What brand of jeans would be worthy?
    I mean come on man, if you don't like him that much, maybe skip the threads about him?
    Just a thought.

    It's funny, I saw someone commenting on his suit and how it didn't fit because it wasn't loose and baggy. Loose fitting suits have been out of style for years now. Some people wouldn't know style if it slapped them in the face. LOL.

    I understood what he said, when he said it. It wasn't that controversial.

    But, when people think that someone's comments cast shade on them, they're going to ratchet up the level of butt-hurt and the warm, warm tears will begin welling in their eyes.

    Joe isn't knocking the Guitarist that uses a pedal to achieve an echo or delay or a bit of Grit to their guitars sound. He's knocking the people that play the pedals instead of the guitar.

    And not even so much knocking the pedal concept, but more stating the fact that it is more gratifying and better in the long run to learn to play the instrument first. Learn the guitar as the foundation and the pedals as the window treatments and fancy cabinets. Lol

    It was a joke, man. I like Joe, I just don't want to spend $150 to go see him in concert.

    Well Jon your jacket fits nicely in this picture. It isn't loose and baggy, yet, it's not tight either. This is how a jacket is supposed to fit IMHO. :thumb:

    Yeah for nosebleed or way off to the side seats. To get a good seat here in Phoenix, $125 + fees and parking were the norm.

    Thank gawd for freedom of choice. I would pay it, but that's just me.

    I'm not sure I get the connection between jeans and ticket prices.

    Having said that, if I was wearing a jacket and slacks on stage all night, I'd be wearing comfy jeans off-stage. But that's just me.

    I like Joe's playing and think he gets great tone, etc., but I don't see paying more than about $35 for an act of this stripe. I'm happy for him that he has fashioned a career doing what he's doing and he really seems like a great guy. Couple him with a great song writer and singer and you'd really have something. This was the case with most of the blues rock guitar heroes. But what he is doing is working so more power to him!

    As to the tight fitting suit, hey, does it ever go out of style?

    Fortunately for him, 5000 people saw no problem with ticket prices.

    $35 a ticket? Lol. It’s 2017.....it costs more than that for 2 tickets to a movie theater.

    Gather 7 renowned musicians, rent a theater in your own dime (which he does), and charge $35 a ticket. Lol. See how long your tour lasts. People seriously crack me up.

    I don’t know what venue you are describing, but generally speaking, there aren’t “nosebleed” sections in 5000 seat venues.

    Fashion 101.....I’m wearing a sport coat, not a suit jacket. Two different things, two different fits.
