    Hey Pierre.

    I'm ok thanks.

    Pedals you've sold me? At the minute I can think of:

    BSIABII
    MI Audio Boost N' Buff
    AMT Distation

    Shout up if you can think of any I've forgotten

    I'm liking the band choice!

    What would be your ultimate rig???
    I know they both took/take place at Donnington, but I couldn't remember if Donnington Festival came out of Monsters of Rock or what used to be The Ozzfest

    Ultimate rig is a difficult 1 really as I have enough amps already to cover pretty much anything I want/need (apart from high gain, but I don't use that much anyway), so ultimate rig would probably just be 'better' versions of what I already have:

    Instead of my Carlsbro 50 Top it'd probably be a JTM45 and instead of my JCM800 2210 it'd prob be a Splawn or a Bognor etc. I have always wanted an AC30 though! Same with guitars and pedals really, I pretty much have all I want/need but could get better versions of some of them

    I had a korean Dean ML about 8 years ago and it was a horrible guitar. If I see an Explorer of theirs that I like I'll give it a go!

    Nope never been to Monsters of Rock, I think that festival either stopped or changed it's name before I started going to gigs.

    Dean and Hamer make a NICE Korina "Explorer based" guitar.


    Great choices for a dream band. Ever been to a Monsters Of Rock show? If yes, best memory and worst please.

    Come back to the Sunshine State let me know and I can share a few cool guitar things with ya. Maybe a tour of Dean guitars if you like and I can get us in.

    I love the story of the Cavern Club gig. That would have been intimidating for a moment I presume. In my short music endevors I have shared the stage with Yanni playing after my band and we did it at the site of Buddy Holly's last gig, The Surf Ballroom in Iowa. Yanni was the keyboardist in a Minneapolis band, Chamelion, at the time while he was in college. A guy in our band knew that band and we got on the bill for 45 minutes or so. It was really very interesting to look over the memorabilia from that time period and then play on that stage. Life IS Good.

    I like that natural finish you have done on that first Strat clone. The GSG is sweet. Nice to get a guitar made in a more hands on, attention to detail kind of way.

    Any new guitar you want and you could have it, what would it be?
    I was meant to have come back to Florida this year, but I needed a new car as my last 1 bit the bullet and ended up not being able to afford it in the end Thanks for the offer and will deffo let you know as/when I come over again

    The 1st natural strat was like that underneath the original black paint, so aside from the oil to darken it slightly, that's how it was made

    At the minute, there's not really anything guitar wise I want as I have most bases covered, but if I HAD to add something to the collection it'd prob be a Korina style Explorer

    When are you at your most content?

    Which musical sale do you most regret?

    Where did you play your best/worst gig?

    Who would play alongside you in your ultimate band (dead or alive)?
    Hey Stevie!

    Most content would prob be later on at night when I can just chill out and not need to worry about anything. Either that or when I'm reading and really get into it. When I'm like that I'll pretty much unintentionally ignore everyone and everything apart from what I'm concentrating on. Drives my girlfriends nuts though because she thinks I'm being ignorant! lol

    Sale regret would be my Korina style Epi Flying V when I was younger. It's hard case wouldn't fit in the boot of my dads car, and he wouldn't let me have it across the back seat, so he made me sell it

    Best gig would probably have been either the 2nd Cavern gig or during a local BOTB where we were were bang on with everything musically and put on 1 of the best shows we'd ever done. Can't say as I've ever really had a 'worst' gig as most of them have gone off without any major problems.

    Dream band would prob be:

    Freddie Mercury on vocals
    Randy Rhoads/Brian May on guitar
    I'd be happy enough to fill out on Rhythm Guitar
    Dave Grohl on Drums
    and (for some reason) I really like Gene Simmons' basslines, so I guess him

    Oh, didn't know they'd shut The Tales Of Robin Hood There's a good visitors centre at Sherwood Forest though that's either had (or is having) a major refurbishment and alot of money spent on it.

    It's a nickname that started while I was at college studying music. Someone started calling it me as my eyebrows joined in the middle and grew partway down my nose, and it stuck Pretty much anyone that knows me in a musical capasity knows me as Brow

    I don't think I'm THAT annoying, only to you maybe!

    The diets going ok, lost about 8 or 9 lbs so far

    Not looking good for NYC this year due to the building works at home costing more than 1st thought, but we gonna put the money left over towards a holiday hopefully next year.

    I was meaning I'd be travelling through merry England to get to Wales so might pop into somewhere Robin associated on the way. The Robin Hood Centre sounds interesting...

There's a few tourist attractions in the city about him (his statue outside the castle etc), as well as 'The Tales Of Robin Hood', which is an attraction that's been around for years. Sherwood Forest and The Major Oak are also massively associated with him, and they're based in Edwinstowe which is about 20 miles outside of Nottingham. The Robin Hood Centre at Sherwood has either been or will soon be massively renovated and updated. So depending where your travels take you, those would be the places I'd suggest.
