71 Tele- How ya doin'?

I live in Belltown. I know exactly where Emerald City Guitars is. The vintage guitars they have are awesome. I am a lefty, therefore, I get most of my Fender guitars either new, or through London from Japan. Otherwise, I would do business there.

I don't play in a band due to my work schedule. After 37 years, I admit that I am not a technically savvy guitarist and I am weak from a musical theory perspective. On the other hand, I can play Hendrix,SRV,Buddy Guy, Stones etc... note for note know my pent. scales etc....

I will stop by your store sometime soon to say hello. I don't have to return to work until March, so I have alot of free time right now.

While we are on the topic of The Sex Pistols, I do like Steve Jones alot. How about you?

Toker: send me an e-mail at jpc58@msn.com. We are moving the store on the 4th, so probably better to stop by after. We will be at 408 Occidental in Pioneer Sq. Cheers.

I lurrvee his contradictory inconsistencies, which makes for a more fascinating human being.

Incidentally, raking it in from appearing in butter commercials was lambasted, but he has gone on record to say he used the proceeds to fund these PIL shows that he otherwise would not have done, which is pretty admirable in my book. Fleecing the corporations to give music lovers some great shows is a splendid scenario.

..... I saw PIL at the Brixton Academy on Monday night.

Superb band, really locked in and to my astonishment (I have seen the Sex Pistols several times), Johnny boy was actually singing and hitting some high notes too. The show clocked in at over 150 minutes and there was no sign of strain on his voice either. I'm going tonight, so it will be interesting to know how his voice is after three consecutive shows.

Cheers,
SonicD

No matter what the Ramones or other low-brows might say Johnny INVENTED punk as a musical genre as well as a political stance thumbs up

You know you're doing good when people want to stab you in the street.


Sir Geldorf? What a twat!

Saw them at Brixton too. Great gig. But the two nights at the Electric Ballroom, were absolutely mindblowing. Just got back from the second one ... SUPERB. Amazing band, and what a singer and performer he is.

THANK YOU!

No disrespect to The Ramones (one of my favourite bands), but no Johnny Rotten/John Lydon, no punk rock.

He's still got it too - those three PIL gigs I saw this week were incredible.

Saying the Sex Pistols invented Punk is like saying Bill Haley and the Comets invented Rock n' Roll.


Dig a little deeper.
