Oh snap! All it took was 1 post! :thumb:

I was going to comment that I was seriously disappointed at the lack of gerbil content in this thread.

Is he selling the highly regarded 'Gerbil Burst"?

The Gerbil rumour was started by Sly Stallone. The two didn't get along very well when they filmed "Lords of Flatbush"....Sly wanted to stir the pot.
It's a myth. No rodents in the butt.

Stallone claims that Gere blames him for it but he denies starting it.

I wish Stills would sell his collection.


I bump into his wife (who I know from a past life) every great once in a while. Next time I see her, I'll ask...


As for Gere's collection, I am sure there are some real gems in there. However, being the cynical bastard that I am, I suspect he's getting rid of them and giving the money to charity so that he can be holier-than-thou regarding all the exotic wood from endangered rain forest species that have graced his homes for the past 40 f-in years.

He'll then say that when he became aware of it, he divested himself of them and gave all the money to charity, so that he didn't profit from the sale of exotic woods. However, that won't be true. He'll also get a tax deduction equal to the amount the guitars sell for (not what he paid) which will probably amount to something like a million dollars. So he will be able to shield $1 million from taxes yielding a net savings (i.e. profit) of something around $350k which is probably in the ball park of what he paid for the collection.

Gerbils with skidmarks sunburst. The new signature Gibsom model.

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

He's a terrible actor.

Bruce Willis could shove a harmonica...



...never mind.
