    well, dreamliner got me started on my teenage years, and I'd like to hear any stories anyone might have

    I played keyboard, had an old "23 stop" farfisa, a "leslie" speaker box, a mashall stack, and a bunch of differant amplifiers, including fender, cusom, the most respected was "marshall", the most impressive was the "boogie" and my favorite the "sound city"

    on the other thread I said I had a gracen amp, that was a brain fart cuz I bought it at a store called "gracens"... it was a peevee, and this amp really sucked...looked very cool, but sucked

    what axe, and what equiptment did anyone have?

    Since I got perris thinking...

    I'm currently in a band called "Holesaw." You basic hard rock, Sabbathy rock band. We've been lying low for a bit, been having a bit of trouble keeping bass players around. I'm the drummer, but also play a bit of guitar.


    Perris: I'd love to see your setup. You can come sit in with us any time. You'd especially be welcome on any of the Floyd tunes we do. That Farfisa would really fit in nicely.

    edit: Equipment.

    6 piece Yamaha recording custom drums in cranberry laquer finish. Pearl rack, Paiste and Zildjian cymbals.

    Epiphone strat copy (yes, they did make a strat copy). Crate and Laney amps.

    Haven't played in around 10 years or more. My last trap was a double bass Ludwig setup with Zildjian cymbals. It was white. I miss playing sometimes. Worst thing about being a drummer is neighbors. When you play an axe, you can just unplug. :p

    epiphone owns gibson or visa versa, and most les pauls are made by epiphone...some are still made in the old gibson factories, and these are supposed to be the best

    my friend gave me a pre cbs strat, with the jazzmaster.

    I sold them for what I thought was a pretty penny back then, wish I had those today

    I remember Peevee being a good amp in the mid to late 80's...course I was a drummer so what do i know. I do remember Marshall Stacks being the shiznit though.
