The best part of NAMM...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Eric Cameron, Jan 23, 2003.


  1. Yes, NAMM was awesome. But it was not playing the $45000 guitar. It wasn't seeing Paul Stanley through the crowd. It wasn't talking to Boosty Collins (though that was damn cool) It wasn't the Bass Bash, or any of the other stuff. It was getting this autograph:

    Yes, I got the autograph of Jim Marshall himself, and acutally got to talk to him for a few minutes. ME!! Small little me who just happens to sell amps that have his name on them. I was starstruck to say the least. Sweaty palms, shaking, not knowing what to say, man was it cool!!:D I know he won't remember me, I was just another face in the line, but I sure as hell will remember him. Very cool.:D

    Rock on

  6. A friend of mine had the same reactions when he met Floyd Rose.

    "OMG I just met the guy that made my bridge!"

    How exciting...:rolleyes:

    Though that new Floyd Rose bridge does kick ass.
