Albert Finney has passed at the age of 82. https://variety.com/2019/film/news/albert-finney-dead-dies-tom-jones-1203132491/
His performances in "Tom Jones" and in "The Dresser" are favorites of mine.
Rest in Peace
Just saw this on the news. I guess there was a booster problem with the second stage booster.
They aborted the launch and made it back safe. Sounds like around 4:30 into the flight they aborted. The Russian Commander was as cool as can be.
OK, I know this is a Les Paul Forum but I just found out about these guys playing together and there's some pretty great playing. Thought I'd share.
G. E. Smith and Jim Weider are the core players along with a variety of other players joining them.
I know there a few cat lovers on here. Its a channel run by Tiny Kittens from Canada. They are an organization that catches, spays/neuters, and either sets up for adoption or releases the fixed kitty back into the feral colony (only if they are so feral that they can not be adopted) that they...
I know there's a lot of negative press regarding law enforcement (some of it earned) but this kind of stuff happens all too frequently and it gets very little attention from the news or the public.
He had 21 years on the force and was shot and killed by a dirt bag being investigated as part...
Just an FYI for anyone thinking about some single coil pickups.
Don Mare is having a "Mid July" pickup sale on his pickups.
Send him an e-mail or call him for a quote.
Super nice guy, very knowledgeable and makes fantastic pickups. I just ordered a set of Hot Bakelites to go into my...
Her skills and playing have come up before (there's a thread in the Les Paul section) but has been pretty quiet for the last 4 years.
She just came out with a new digital album and its on something called bandcamp.
She can play the hell...
So I posted this in the cellar but its more than just a normal rig rundown. He's got some great stories that accompany his gear that I found really interesting (Leslie West and his Les Paul Junior).
First day of pitchers and catchers.
I know there are plenty of MLPers who could give a rats az but I'm excited. Nothing like the smell of cut grass, a warm day, a hot dog and some baseball.
Wasn't really sure what the hell to call this thread. Anyway, I was on another forum talking about outro solos and the guitar work for Linda Ronstad's version of "Your No Good" came up.
It reminded me of when I discovered what a fantastic musician Andrew Gold was. I never knew how good...
So I wondered upon this builder and I'm very interested in his stuff. Single man operation, a little expensive but from what I can see his guitars look and sound great. Kind of a mesh of traditional styling with some quirks. I'm smitten by his take on the Jr./Special (TV 59 Delux)...
I just got an e-mail from the Music Zoo with a list of over 20 of the guitars that Steve Miller is selling.
Some nice Gibsons and Fenders. Nothing vintage but some custom shop stuff (Pearli, Beano, Double Neck, etc.). Kinda cool but a little pricey...
