Jim. I was actually thinking of making some sort of tenuous link back to the original subject, but you beat me to it!

Well Bob

You have not changed a bit, apart from the hair.

Did you ever play or sing in STATUS NOO!

Or was it the Dobie Brothers.

Chris T.,

Status Noo?   I have done a bit of noodling as I'm sure Bob P. has done many times.

Had to laugh over the D. Brothers as in the early 1970s my Brother was called up to testify in a mates court case when he was fobbed off with a ropey car. Fiddled MOT etc. It should have been me as I had looked over the car and OK'd it. When they kept asking questions to my Brother he denied everything. The judge turn on the defence saying " I think you have the wrong Dobie Brother" Our mate won his case and the MOT issuing garage lost their testing licence.

To those who don't know there is a US rock group called The Doobie Brothers who began in 1969/70. The Judge just got muddled!

Rob D.

PS. Noodling --- aimless musical improvisation.

my older brother has a Vox Phantom guitar (diamond style) with Hank Marvin's tag on the bridge, very collectable these days

Oh really, I didnt know he endorsed Vox guitars, I know the shads played Burns guitars for a while as a promotion but soon went back to Fenders. Mick our lead player has a large guitar collection and the other year bought a Burns marvin annivesary and I have to say that it is excellent! I currently play a Yamaha APX electraccoustic and for the electric numbers I use a Guild Starfire. To be honest Vox made great amps but the guitars were not much cop , as you say, collectable just the same. Do you remember one of the stones used to play a Vox teardrop?

You've done it again Jim! Boom Boom!
Bob. my younger brother uses a Burns in the Fezheads as his main guitar. I think there's a pic of the stick guitar I made for myself a few years ago. And the electric bass ukulele (formerly bass guitar!) which Carla decorated, it has bright blue LEDs in its electrics. Poser, MOI?! Your drummer might like to see the pics of my drum stuff too.
Now before Jim brings us back to topic, Why Do Penguins Prefer Billiards to Snooker? Discuss.
 
Best answer gets ....a prize of gold!

Bob, on my last post about pix I failed to say that they're on www.myspace.com/captainbubbleuk
And Damnyoureyessir! I did not know there would be an obvious answer to that question! Jim missed his "Gold" opportunity in your post though...GUILD guitar, sounds homonym for GILD...gilded prize? Alright, I'll get me coat!
