    From another thread due to be nuked soon... Gig fouls and fees

    I've seen everything mentioned in this thread on stage. Worse still, *I've* done a handful of them myself so if poking fun at my own misjudgements keeps others from making the same mistakes, pass judgement I shall.

    LED bulb = $500 Not having to climb up there for 20 years = priceless

    Chewing gum $25.00 Having to lean your guitar up against your amp during breaks because you're too cheap/forgetful/hip to bring a guitar stand $50.00 Using an iPad for anything other than FOH mixing $100.00

    Why do I hate Paul Shaffer?

    A dork to be sure--part personae and part just who he was. But one hell of a player--probably one of the Top 10 keyboard players around.

    EVH dead at 65

    Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love or Dance The Night Away are both fun songs to play and on the easier size of the EVH range.

    Pedals you haven't used or messed with for many years!!!

    My '83 MXR Distortion+. I love it, love messing around with it, but I seem to like less fuzz and more growl as I age. Haven't pulled it out of the box in over a decade, but I love it too much to part with it.

    NGD : 2007 GOTW

    A rare bird indeed. They made 400 of them but I've bet I've seen two for sale in the last 10 years. Congrats!

    EVH dead at 65

    I recently learned that EVH personally asked Patty Smyth to be the singer for VH in 1985 after things imploded with DLR, before they approached Sammy. That would have been an interesting second iteration of VH. :band:

    Lets see your #1 Les Paul

    Now seeing that this is in the Historic Section, if I had to say what my #1 Historic is, I would say this: 2013 R0

    EVH dead at 65

    RIP and a true loss to the Rock & Roll world. The sheer number of people who took up the guitar after hearing him play will never be reproduced again. He was an innovator, an entertainer, and a hell of a songwriter. A true hero of my youth--gone. :(

    Lets see your #1 Les Paul

    This shouldn't be my #1 with all I have to choose from, but she has never been dethroned in the 10 years I've owned her: '10 Traditional Pro Goldtop/Darkback

    Found an old picture of my Mitts 3000GT

    Those cars were engineering masterpieces back in the 90s. Japan was always bringing the tech to the performance car whereas the US was still just trying to bring horsepower and big tires.
