      The bad news is that my amp runs hot. The good news is that it keeps my pizza warm between songs.

      On the bright side, Arsenal is on top and it's new amp day!

      Right now, there's not a single person working for the 49ers, from the owner down to the practice squad, who deserves to keep their job.

    Favorite Genres:
    I mostly play older rock styles (classic rock, prog, punk, metal) but I listen to everything that crosses my path. IMHO, anyone who restricts their musical experience to a narrow spectrum can't really be called a music fan, let alone a musician.
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    None. Had enough bad band experiences, so now I am just a musical hobbyist and local jammer.
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Basses: Fender, Squier, Ibanez, Gibson.
    Guitars: BC Rich, Gibson, ESP.
    Amps: Ampeg, Marshall, Behringer, Acoustic, Crate.
    Too many pedals to remember
