Loved the Harmony guitars in those videos. How did Winwood rate a Telecaster? :DevilGuitar:

At 15 I relized that I wanted to be Jimmy Page. That didn't work out so great but I've been a Les Paul freak ever since. :smile:

Cool links, thanks!

At 15 I was into Led Zeppelin, The Stones, Foghat, Humble Pie, Mountain, The Faces, and classical music. (Shortly after my 16th I discovered Roy Buchanan, and Gibson Les Paul lust dissolved into major permanently dissabling Fender Telecaster lust.) At 15 I was also in a truly crappy band of pimply faced dweebs, however fondly remembered...God, 1973 was a long time ago!

Peace, Mooh.

At 15 I was in my first band, well, joined when I was 14. It was '66, the school I was in was Grades 8-13, and back then, if you could breathe, owned a guitar and could play some chords you were in a band. The other guys were older, grades 11-12 (I was in gr 8). My older brother's band was the #1 band in the area, ours was #2. What a great time that was.

Hell no, I've never found a good Leslie at a price I could justify. I'm pretty happy with the Pro3T though, it does the job good enough for what I want. Bonus is I can dial in distortion at any volume. I run the bottom end through that old Roland Revo, it's indestructable. Total cost: $300 US for the Pro3T, $200 Cdn for the Revo. So I'm way under the average $1200-1500 a 122/147 would cost.

Hey, I see you have an M3 and A100 too! And THREE Leslies? Awesome man.

I just realized, a '66 Tele, a '62 A100... you ARE Steve Winwood.

I was fantasizing about Grace Slick feeding me magic mushrooms while listening to "8 Miles High" by the Byrds and knowing what they were actually talking about.. those were the days, not a care in the world and got my first guitar that my parents bought me from the Simpson's catalogue, a Belltone Fire Engine red electric... took me another year to figure out how to tune it! And a year later I was pounding out G L O R I A to anyone that woud listen to me play.

ironically, i will get to see the ventures for the first time on the 21st, at casino rama.

15 seems like 2 lifetimes ago sometimes. My top 5 favovrite albums were Santana Abraxas, Pink Floyd Wish you were here, Rolling Stones Goats head soup, Led Zeppelin III, and Deep Purple Made in Japan. I'd try to jam along with them on my old beat up acoustic in my parents basement. 31 year later and I still enjoy listening to them. The old acoustic has long since departed. Replaced by 12 electrics, 2 acoustics and 1 bass.

Rock On!

That would be in 73 or so for me. Just started high-school and got involved with a 'bad' crew - got a job and spent all my money on music, also bought my first bass, a "Pandora" Jazz copy, fresh off the boat, for $65. (Have a pic of me with it but ain't showin it) :eek:
Then started jammin and playin garage-bands, parties, and all the 'bad' influences that go with them.

Funny thing, I was a very mixed-up kid, I only ever felt at peace, sort-of, when I played, it was my refuge, my 'self'. Then along came the school/career/work/marriage/mortgage/kids/OLD AGE! thing and I realized, hopefully not too late - but could have been sooner, that the only thing that makes me totally complete is playing music.

I'm more confused about the world now than I am of myself.
:wink:
