    I just picked up this DVD today, a great insight into the life and times of John Entwistle. Good interviews with Pete Townshend, Johns mom, and many notable musicians (Peter Frampton is the narrator) Not much tech info, and no rare footage if you've already seen The Kids Are Alright; still a good bio piece, I recommend it :thumb:

    Thanks guys! I've had fun with it already. Funny thing is I keep missing the strings with my pick because the spacing is throwing me off, so I've been just playin with the fingers. It feels like it's been forever since I've picked one up.

    I dream of a custom Alembic. Maybe for college graduation.

    I've used those amps for recording, and my bass player switched to them a while back mixed with another tube head. I think they sound amazing. Even has the same cabs.

    thats sweet, Ive never played them myself, but alot of my favorite players were using them back in the 70s/80s. I saw Flea/RHCP on their last tour and he sounded great, the Acoustics might just make him sound that much better :dude:
