Absolutely agree Tom. Most of us listened to records with friends, and talked about it. Very little magic left for kids. Sensory overload starting way to young, and ever more sophisticated ways to draw interest to the consumer culture at ever younger ages. You too Thumps. I think heroes are fast becoming an archaic concept. Not just to guitar players. The inability of some to accept the fact none are perfect leaves little room for heroes, and if you add the self-righteous hypocrisy that seems the order of these days you narrow the pool down to the Marvel universe. Societies without heroes become desperate places.
