    What Artist did you worship, but no longer listen too?

    Trent Reznor I loved the first few NIN albums but as he went on his music became angst ridden whining to me. I'm 25+ years older now and can't handle listen to that emo baloney anymore.

    Planning a Music Jam

    Open jam, cool! I host an open jam two or three times a year at my place. We set up in my big garage and play out to the people in the driveway. I tell all the guests to bring their loudest amps so they can wring them out a bit as I live out in the country and they can open things up without...

    Ludwig Vistalites : Looking for opinions of experienced owners

    Black&White30,Roy Orbison

    Usually when you see something like that it's a tribute show. See A Concert for George for some pretty good stuff.

    How you make your voice good

    I'm no singer but I do a much better job if I'm ONLY singing and not playing uke or drums at the same time. I have a much greater appreciation for those who both play and sing at the same time.
