Gibson Basses / Re: Dire financial situation at Gibson?
« on: February 19, 2018, 11:42:43 AM »
There are articles about Gibson all over the Internet now.  I thought about posting a few, but I would hardly know where to begin.  That is quite a difference from a week ago when this topic started.  Then I had to look pretty hard to find much of anything.

I actually thought this was a joke.  I don't even like the three-tone paint scheme very much.  I guess it's okay, but nothing to get excited about.  Certainly nothing to pay more for.

I really like it.  Great choice.

Looks like you have to request membership to see the posts? No thanks.

They really go gung-ho on the requesting membership thing.  What a pain in the ass.  If you're not a member, they'll find a way to make you suffer for it.  Just minutes ago, I had to go through the jumping through the hoops trying to find info on a singer I was getting interested in.  Finally, I decided it really wasn't worth it.

Yet another reason to not go anywhere near Facebook.

I've been around a few people like that.  Sometimes you don't know what to expect.

She didn't eat right or what?  :o

A pregnancy complication.  I think she probably got too hot and passed out for a moment there.  Nothing serious.

The only Poppy I've been familiar with up to this point has been Poppy Harlow.  Here she is passing out on her CNN show.  She isn't on screen until 13 seconds into the video, by the way.

It's a mistake Tom Petty was never able to learn from, but maybe others can.  I think of the phone call George Harrison gave him in the middle of the night telling him about Roy Orbison's death.  Tom was obviously grateful to still be alive.  Now all of that seems to be beside the point.

Nice link.


I heard stories from people like Klaus Voormann that Stu was just an okay player and certainly not bad.


This article goes into that.  You've got people like Klaus Voormann and Pete Best making positive statements about Stu Sutcliffe, but other people, especially Paul McCartney don't seem to have too many good things to say about Stu's playing.  I found this article interesting, but there were also times when I had doubts about its objectivity.

I had always heard how bad of a bassist Stu Sutcliffe was, but I didn't realize how bad until I read Paul's comments in this interview.

Ars Technica refers to the Goop coffee enema as a "triumph of ignorance."

Another thing about Indonesia is that they say Indonesian isn't categorized as one of the more difficult languages.  Although as the saying goes, no language is learned without tears.  BTW, the Allen Woody (Blue Royale only) is made in Indonesia.
