If you want a glimpse into today's mindset, just try to watch the insipid remake with Johhny Depp. I never could get up the bile to watch it personally, but from what snippets I have seen on the interwebs, it is quite a departure from the original.Couldn’t have said it better,brother!
Out in the desert as I am (my city was maybe 55,00ish when T.S. broke big) I didn't have the chance to hear them before Stay Stay Hungry. But Under the Blade and You Can't Kill Rock and Roll are my faves by them.Had a family friend who was from Long Island. They all came down and their son brought this album and Under the Blade. Big ole impact on us guys “ from out in the sticks “
Yahtzee!!If you want a glimpse into today's mindset, just try to watch the insipid remake with Johhny Depp. I never could get up the bile to watch it personally, but from what snippets I have seen on the interwebs, it is quite a departure from the original.
In the second they seem to portray Wonka as detesting kids deep down.
Nothing was further than the truth. The man ran a candy factory!! Think that was all for the Grupps?
He treated them all kindly and politely, gently, but firmly, correcting them as needed,
and letting them run free in his factory...
He NEVER said this to a kid!!!!!!
I knew the lad had good taste!Martin:
D-18: Beautifully balanced, elegant, wonderful for fingerpicking and chords, great all-rounder, when you play it you feel that you're holding a true legend. Absolutely worth 3 months of my life.
I'm totally in love with Martin Guitars.
Cannot beat that Martin history. Established in 1833, been built in the same little PA town since the late 1850s.Hey Darrell,
I LOVE Guild and have for a long time. This time it's just a matter of "want" and "can do it finally" like with the Gibson. My Edwards is just as good, but I wanted a Gibson and nothing else would do.
Same story here.
Okay I will confess something...
My true love is acoustic guitars.
So there are Guilds in the future for me, I can see at least 2.
Actually the D-40 was to me the best guitar I played that day. But I just want a D-18 and nothing else will work.
And in the future, where I will have responsibilities and a family, a Guild will be easier to get than a Martin. So right now I'm going for the best I can get.
Facts first ...
