I guess Dinesh D'Souza's latest book, the big lie, got me thinking about it. If it's available in Germany it might be worth checking out for yourself. I haven't picked it up myself but I'm guessing it asserts things counter to the beliefs you would normally adhere to. Shana tova incidentally. Even if you're not observing a new year, I hope you have a sweet Autumn and rest of the year, hopefully full of new Gibson basses with any luck.

That's cool. I don't actually know too much about the AfD but figured it would get you going. I just noticed in the news they might have a chance due to voter apathy. Isn't it a little unfair to label conservatives as zombie nazis? I mean national socialists were still socialists after all.

I suppose we can only hope for Germany to finally break free from the shackles of it's left leaning past and vote AfD for a change right Uwe?

Suicide bombers are going to be so disappointed when they end up getting 40 BC Rich guitars.

I met him once at Berklee when I was 17 when he did a clinic there. He gave out a bunch of sets of Dean Markley blue steels to all the students. He was very kind and talked to a number of us. He was a larger than life presence but radiantly happy, enthusiastic and good natured from what I could see. This was the summer of 1994. Perhaps his drinking developed as a coping mechanism because he may have already known he was deteriorating. Really cool Deep Purple cover album he put out, aside from his solo and session work.

Not sure how Joey Spampinato is doing with his Cancer fight. He played bass in NRBQ and also the band in the Chuck Berry movie Hail! Hail! rock n roll.

I can appreciate that having more headroom is an added benefit. There are other factors to consider, such as the room size and how much PA support there is. While recording is a different circumstance than the stage, it seems like a B-15 is a more popular choice than an SVT for those purposes. Frank Zappa, while not a bassist, also pulled off some great performances with just a little old Pignose. Big rigs are nice but after playing often at high volume, more subtle approaches start to gain in appeal, no pun intended.

Gee, I bet Cher would have fit right in with Deep Purple too!  ;D

More like Cher was dragging down Meatloaf. She sounded better with this Diamond and the late great Glen Campbell RIP.

I take it back, I was indeed talking about diamond head. That's the band who's tunes Metallica covered. King diamond is the guy who looks like a reject from Kiss.

It's a shame so many people equate louder and more watts with better. Maybe it's because I'm getting older I find music more enjoyable when it doesn't result in hearing loss after being at a performance.

Well whatever one thinks about Mr. Sobolewski, I think we can all agree this is a great Franki Valli song.

Looks like there were a couple versions at least.

Not sure where God City is exactly. I just knew about them from the album credits. I wouldn't feel too bad for King Diamond, they've been brought up on stage with Metallica a few times and also played Ozzfest. Btw they didn't write Blitzkrieg, my mistake.
