1) Listen more to experienced older ones , they did experience the headaches I would eventually go thru
2) Mom was right , I was wrong , Dad was right , I was extremely wrong
3) take guitar lessons at an earlier age
4) dont waste money on stupid things
5) Dont trade A pristine 65 Telecaster with a Rosewood neck in for a Squire Tele with a. Maple Neck
6) Buy a Goldtop Les Paul Earlier in life than 52 years Old

What I tell young people now is to work very hard while you’re young and have the energy. If not, you’ll have to work hard when you’re older, and that sucks. I should have had my head out of my ass, but I wouldn’t listen to anybody then. I can’t say that I would change anything, though. I have an amazing wife and family, and would be afraid that any move in a different direction would’ve thrown off the future, and the life I have now. I’ll take what I have.

Don't drink.
Don't accept that prescription for Percocet.
Don't see X doctor ever.
Don't be put on X medications.
Finish college before moving.

That's all I can think of.

Heed every word that came from my dad's mouth. I'd be a millionaire.


And .. oh yeah. Scene from Gus Zoppi Music Center circa 1975:
Vince: "Hey Gus, if you get any of those old 1950's Les Pauls in trade, give me a ring."
Gus: "Sure thing Vince. They come in fairly regularly."
Vince: :naughty:

I would tell myself to ease up on the attitude. It's not going to do you any favors through most of your 20's.

Save early in life, live cheaply, buy land (with water) away from things, slowly build up on it, stockpile food, means of getting same and protecting. Retire early there.

I saw that question in an interview, and it’s always a retarded answer. They give some bullshit inane answer, somewhat akin to beauty pageant contestants wishing for whirled peas.
I wouldn’t tell myself nuthin.
Figure it out yourself, little bitch. I had to.
Although, I’m half-tempted to Biff it and give him a sports almanac just to watch money corrupt me as a person.
:naughty:
1. Limit yourself to 3 drinks at one sitting!
2. Don't bet on the NFL
3. Buy any 50's Gibson guitar within reason
4. Be nice to ugly women-they have good looking friends!
5. Marry for money
... all tongue in cheek, of course!
