Funniest show on TV!!!!Dave Chapelles new season starts tonight and every Wed. at 10:30pm on Comedy Central.
Believe me MediumRare,I'm not proud of the crappy music we dole out here.I can't wait till this Timberlake,Spears,N-Sync crap goes away.As a whole,I haven't heard a GREAT album in probably 5 or 6 years.Typical American hubris: "We're the best- even with the worst!"

I agree.He can sing but he won't last.Like David Cassidy or some lamo like that.The other guy(Ruben)can sing also but I would like to hear him without all the backup singers he has.Most of them drown out his songs.(I don't listen to him he's just on all the talk shows recently)The whole time he was on American Idol it seemed like a total act to me. Very fake.

World Idol proved that you don't need looks to win that's for sure.My channel changer never changed channels as fast as it did on that day I saw her.(the winner)uggghhhh!!!!

I don't think Yngwie is Belgian, and it's probably wrong of me to say so, but he reminds me of a stereotypical European with long hair. Not that Europeans usually have long hair, but the ones that do remind me of Yngwie.
Watch a morning show or a talk show soon and he'll be on it.You'll see that he has 3 backup's that sing right along with him.Most of his stuff is with them singin' along and drownin' out a lot of his voice.I don't believe he's gospel.I'd classify him as R&B like Brian Mcknight or some music in the same vain(not a fan).Lotta backup singers? Is he a Gospel music kinda guy or something?
Yeah,Vince Gill can stone rawk a guitar when he wants.He's so talented it's scary.What's even scarier is that he's a better guitar player than a singer.He's a shredder for sure.Also other notables from the world of Nashville:Ricky Skaggs(unbelievably fast and technical player)and The guitarist for Alan Jackson(man he's got the riffs).I actually think it might be against the law to play through a Triple Rectifier in country music!!! They have to stick with the normal Fender Twins and Showman's and what not.Any distortion means Jailtime!!! I think they could get away with playing a Mesa Heartbreaker though.It can get clean and it can get rather nasty!!!!!Have you ever listened to country music? Some of those guitarists shred! Imagine piping them through a Triple Recto!
He's a fantastic guitarist and musician.The guy is just talented.Total shred head and songwriter to boot.Problem with him though is that this music gets old along with him.His stuff was fresh back in the 80's but he stuff now sounds all the same.I'm a fan of his 80's stuff bigtime.I like it all.I just scored his "black" album a few weeks ago(very,very rare).Everyone is going to pelt me with everything from trouts to beer cans for this one...Prince. He is an unbelieveable guitarist. No, I'm not a fan of his music.

They're in Smyrna.Was looking for a Mosrite ventures at the time but they wanted a minimum of $1500 for that axe and I said,naahhhhhhhh.Actually I'm quite sad today.Stayed up till 2 in the morning this morning playing a friends Mesa Nomad.He had a piece of crap Yamaha axe but it didn't matter,that amp made the difference.Amazingly loud amp!!!!!I fear touching my Fender Pro Junior now for it's not in the same class.That Triple rectifier costs a few nickels that's for sure!!!!! Went to Dallas guitar show in October and looked at some Bogner's,they are what I aspire to in the vein of a cabinet and a head.My fantasy amp is a RIG,Crest 4801 pa amp,mesa boogie studio preamp(don't make anymore)and a couple of Marshall cabs.Sheer power.1800 watts.I'll go deaf in 23 secons at level 2!!!!!!!Amp tone is everything!!!!!Atlanta Vintage Guitars
