    What an important artist he was.

    I love record art- I had a shot at some of the original proofs for the Stones' "Beggar's Banquet LP...just had money tied up elsewhere....they sold in 5 days.

    Some of those early LP covers are wonderful to look at.

    Re: The Autograph Thread

    Buddy of mine in College had every piece of wall in his apartment covered in Album covers. His collection was incredible. Every Fleetwood Mac was my favorite. He had an import album of Dark Side of the Moon we'd listen to and you could hear things on it you couldn't hear on the U.S. version. I really love album cover art. I would find new artists that way all the time because their cover would draw me to buy them.

    I had a roommate who used to talk about hearing things on Dark Side of the Moon that weren't really there, too. He said that was why he quit acid. True story.

    What fun to open a record and while it played stare at that huge album cover.

    Used to be so much fun, even if they sounded worse than digital music.

    We, of course, were doing acid while we were listening, and that was a good thing, as you got the most out of that album by doing so. Nothing wrong with a little acid if your mind is right. All acid does is accentuate the feelings of what's going on inside. If your mind is right, it's a good trip. If your mind is off, you might have issues becoming accentuated, and get a bad trip. I imagine that's what happened with your Friend. One of the greatest Pianists in the World was a close friend of mine named Mark Simon. He did hundreds of trips by the time he was 19. He won National piano contests, but his passion was jazz, and he had a style uniquely his own. Ken Kesey, whom I know you've read his works, is a great read to learn more about the truth regarding the usage of LSD.

    I sold music and it's components. I knew well the mathematics involved with digitally recorded versus analogically recorded music, but there was still a dfference where I preferred vinyl, and could hear things that weren't on the digitally recorded version, even though that is supposed to be physically impossible. Earth, Wind & Fire's "I Am", was a great cover. Supertramp's "Breakfast in America", Thin Lizzy's "Black Rose", and hundreds of others, are music legends, just for the art.

    Nice wikipedia article on "The Ventures", the best-selling instrumental band of all-time, whose original band member, Nokie Edwards, passed away today. There is some cool information on guitars they influenced.

    One of the backup vocalists on "Dark Side of the Moon", Claudia Fontaine, noted as one of the top-10 best backup vocalists of all-time, passed away Tuesday. It was producer Alan Parsons, who asked her to sing wordless, for that album. It's some of the very best cuts from the album.

    She sang on "Everyday I Write the Book" with Elvis Costello if memory serves.

    Talented, terrific.

    Re: The Autograph Thread

    Alright, so I can finally post this. Awhile back I posted a photo of one of Kurt Cobain's Fender Stratocasters. I had a tough time deciding whether to get it signed or not by the surviving members. Some people think it lowers the value...these are so rare, I figured it couldn't hurt and thought it might display better.

    Plus, I wanted to see Dave and Krist's face. Krist was not very happy, I don't think...he was a little weirded out haha....he used to sign his name "Krist Nirvanaselic" and tried to get him to do it and he wouldn't. He asked "Are you sure you want me to sign this?" But he did add "In Utero." Cool, since that is the tour it was used on.

    Dave Grohl was pretty excited by it, you can see his face in the photo. Pat Smear wouldn't sign, said it was too personal. And I understand.

    I go to get on the plane....and I'm carrying this guitar...and it suddenly hits me how weird this is going to be going through the scanners....and I really don't know what to do, do I tell them do I just let it go...

    I choose to make as big a deal as possible. That way they won't think it is anything. I pull it out of a carrying case and tell the lady that I have a broken guitar and that I know it is unusual and wanted her to know before they scan it. She yells "We have a guitar coming..."

    Cool, all set. Then she looks at it....and starts talking about how it's the ugliest funniest looking guitar she's ever seen.....she was having a good time at its expense.

    So I say, "Hey you you shouldn't laugh at my guitar, that could have belonged to Kurt Cobain, maybe he played it...."

    "Yeah, right." She says.
