Is Jim Morrison alive? 

I for one do not think so.He certainly had the ways and the means to do it.And that would be the ultimate cure all for a rock star that wanted out.And if if he faked it and pulled it off,I do not think that you would see him in New York or Oregon.To do that would,even if you are still alive,would be a final decision,you would have to live a very obscure life after that.You would not want to be seen or recognized,and there would be a money trail someplace,he could have just retired and would have plenty of…

A Lot of Ragging On Gibson Guitars Online-Pretty funny 

It is either condemnation from those who can't afford to blind loyalty to those who bought them.I really don't want to enter that frey.I can tell you how I feel about it and relate it to you as a Gibson lover who,breathed,lived and slept with two of them for many years.Pretty much for sure I would not spend over a thousand dollars for a guitar hanging on a rack.To me that is a floor model to take it for a spin.If it hit the jackpot I would expect to be able to work a deal with the sales guy.Yet I know…

What Kind Of Strings do You Use? 

For over three decades only one brand,D'ADDario.Never got a bad set.I got just a bit shook when I bought my Rickenbackers and you must use Ric strings to keep the guitar in warranty terms.It is not a rip off,their prices are very fair yet I called customer service and asked them if D'ADDadario's would void my warranty terms.Rickenbacker has excellent customer service and the rep told me that Rickenbacker Strings were made by DADDario yet they would give me a wholesale price on them and do custom gauges for…

How do you play for a riot? 

You don't really know when it is coming.The audience is into it.You push it out as best as you can.

The Bootleg Recoring of our soundcheck 

We were getting set to perform at the joint in the woods in Orlando and were doing a soundcheck.We got into and did a full set.My wife Tammy noticed a guy holding a mic in his hand,She told the Band "That guy is recording us."We walked over and surrounded him with a very polite smiling circle."Are you recording us?"We busted him.Tapedeck and all with the mic running down his sleeve held in his hand."Cool man,come back to the motel with us so we can hear what you got.It was just a soundcheck,no audience…

Into The Woodshed 

And so it is into the woodshed to get the material going.No way to get around that.Right now everything is acoustic,with a little PA in the studio."Oh y'all have it made,you can just record with a studio right there!"Oh no,there are no ambitions at this time to do anything like like that.The recording equipment is shut down.The only ambition is to get material together and go out and play it live.If you really know from the old school,which is the true school it takes a band six months of live work to…

The Birth Of A New Band 

Real good news today,Have gone under agreement to form a new band with my Producer Kenny Veenstra.We have been working together for about four years and well we had been going over the possibility to form a mutual music project of all original material and today got to be working on the arrangements and the birth came of "Rosewater Blue."The last version of The Rene Labre group,and God bless them, was the final nail in that coffin.The thought of pursuing that direction again just made me sick.What it was…

How Do You Feel About Losing Your Guitar Collection? 

"I did have some very cool guitars,not a collection yet it was perfect for me,I loved and spent a lot of time taking care of them.Many very special memories associated with them,especially my SG and Les Paul Professional..The thief came and stole them.They all have RL carved in the last fret,if you come across one get in touch with me,I offer a reward with no questions asked.Whilst I had them I made the most of it by recording them.How could they be replaced though?and from now on I though…

I Do Not Want to Be An Internet Watchdog 

Fuck that,that was only just a tip to help some people out.The whole thing to me is very boring and a huge waste of time.You measure the risk yourself and see if you can take it.You are going to invest into a business that does not have a license,a D&B rating.Does not belong to the BBB?Thus they are not accountable for squat.I want to sing and that is what I am going to do.
