    Just wondering who all on TB is in the Buffalo NY area?

    I remember 1 poster went to UB school of music but cannot remember the screen name.

    Interested in lessons/advice on a good place to get lessons in the area. Guitar center gives me the heebie jeebies lol.


    Thanks!

    Just a sidenote:

    I lived in the Buffalo viewing area back in the early 80's. I can recall Billy Sheehan (still with Talas) doing public service announcements on a local TV station. He even had the infamous P bass perched on his knee.

    Wonder whatever happened to him?

    I'm not from Buffalo, but I'm very impressed with the music scene in hostage NY. Some amazing bands are up your way.

    I used to live at 186 Congress St., a few blocks from the Zippo factory. Do they still have the pumpjack in the McDonald's parking lot?
