I've lurked on this website various times in the past but I finally stopped and actually decided to join up. I have not been dissapointed! It's an awesome community with a wealth of knowledge so I'm trying to learn all that I can! If any of you guys have the time look my band up on youtube "John The Conqueror" and let me know what you think. This isn't a plug or anything I promise, cause I doubt any of yall are in Philly but I'd really like to hear what you think. Thanks
