    1) Air Raid Sirens, scary or cool?

    2) RE: Ted Nugent, can his claim of his amp/guitar combination being able to blow the nuts off a charging rhino @ 60 paces be scientifically tested? Do you think it would make a good Myth Busters episode?

    3) Favorite amp of all time?

    4) If given carte blanche and studio access, what kind of album would you like to make?

    5) Your favorite Batman villains?

    Cool to hear about the MC5! -what stage were they at, early or late career? any backstage mayhem to recount?

    -What's the worst thing that's happened to you onstage?

    -What's the worst outfit you've gigged in?

    -Do you cook? -and do you have a signature dish?

    -if you had to replace your current collection with new guitars and amps, what would you choose? (let's leave Mission amps out, just for fun...)

    -What amps out there would you like to try?

    -what are the best and worst gigs you've seen?

    -Have you ever had cause to don an animal suit?

    Thats actually what I was asking. I didn't mean music related, but just in general. Like that "lifes lesson" ya didn't figure out until ya were older, that ya wish you'de known way earlier.

    Thats deffinately a kool answer though. I always like to hear peoples answer to that question, its almost always something thats worth thinking about.

    What decade had the best music (going back to the 40s I suppose)? There is a correct answer, I hope that your opinion matches the correct answer.

    Good to have you as a host Lew, I don't know terribly much about you, besides that I hope to someday know as much as you obviously do.

    I have actually thought about this for a couple of years now, and if I should ever be so fortunate to have the opportunity, I would love to bring my future family over to Colorado or Montana (somewhere around the Rocky Mountains at least..), and live there for 3-4 years perhaps..

    Here's another question for ya: can you name a single band or artist, that you believe should be obligatory listening for us kids?

    If "The Rockies" could draft or trade for any pitcher that's playing right now, who would you want it to be?

    Name any woman in history and not presently alive whom you would theoretically bed if she were still alive and in her prime.

    Next theoretical question...
    Lets assume that there has been a terrible ice storm that has knocked out your power and all phone service (including power to the cell towers) and there is a very large rabid dog outside your door that has bitten your ankle and is now fixated on you for some reason and will not leave. What is your plan of action?

    Question; Do you have any Non-Master volume amps that you enjoy cranking up on a regular basis? I mean; amps that just verge on the edge of uncontrolled feedbacK?
    Thanks!

    I only have two amps with master volume controls: my Matchless Chieftan and Marshall 50 watt JCM-800.

    Up until a few months ago, the amps I loved cranking up most and just wailing through were my smaller Fender tweeds: 8 watt '59 Princeton...18 watt '59 tweed Deluxe...20 watt '51 Super.

    But my current favorites are the 15 - 18 watt blackface and silverface Fender Princeton Reverbs that Bruce completely rebuilt and modded for me into the most amazing amps for my style that I've ever owned. Those amps have it all: a pair will be clear and loud enough to play live with and the lead tones are textured and growly and beautifully sustainful when soloing with a Strat and Tele. I like them so much and they are so differant from a normal Princeton Reverb that I'm going to ask Bruce to build his own Mission Amps version and I'd like to see that amp be the Lew Collins Signature model.

    Q. What gives you most satisfaction in life?

    Q. What have you done in life that you're most proud of?

    Q. Whose love has been the most meaningful to you?

    Q. What was the impulse purchase you most regretted?

    Q. Have you thought of running for office in Boulder to get rid of the current lot?
    Q1: There's a few things that come to mind, but I'd say hiking to the top of a high 13 or 14 thousand foot mountain is pretty darn satisfying. I love it. I get out at least twice a week for a 6 - 12 mile hike, and at 58 years old I'm pretty happy to still be in good enough shape to do that.

    Q2: I love writing a great song. My songwriting partner, Sherrie Scott, and I have written some real beauties, IMO, and I love performing them live. It's really satisfying to have people come up and say something like: You wrote that!?!?

    Q3: I've got to say the Great Spirit. I've felt the love of the Great Spirit in a very direct and personal way and that experience removed most of my fear of death.

    Q4: It wasn't really an impulse buy because I thought about it for a day or two and then went back and bought it. It was a Fender Vibro King amp which sounded fabulous both times I played through it prior to buying it and then once I got it home I didn't like it at all.

    Q5: No. lol!

    In addition, I don't recall reading what type of picks and strings you prefer.
    Q1: Big Star Wars fan. And what Star Wars is all about is our own country (the USA) and how it's been taken over by the Military Industrial Complex that Prez Eisenhower warned us about. I dig Yoda.

    Q2: Haven't heard him...although I know who he is.

    Q3: My favorite amps have real pilot lights.

    Wait, you found a way for the nerdyness to leave after learning to play guitar? I've been playing a few years and it's only seeming to get worse, ...especially with this forum.
    Q1: I'd like to be able to read minds, and know the past as well as the future.

    Q2: Hmmm....probably Superman. He can do just about anything!

    Q3: I'm not a skier. If people have anything against snowboarders it's probably just that they tend to be kids who love to go at it fast and seemingly recklessly. (Just like we did when we were kids!)

    Q4: Seems like Aspen is the hottest ski pass in Colorado...if you can afford it.

    3) Favorite amp of all time?

    4) If given carte blanche and studio access, what kind of album would you like to make?

    5) Your favorite Batman villains?
    Q1: Kinda scary I guess. Haven't heard one in a long time though...not way up here at 8300' above sea level where I live.

    Q2: Hah! I think Ted is so full of SPAM that you can't take everything he says literally. He's a legend in his own mind.

    Q3: Boy. First off, none of my amps are unmodified except my Marshall and my Matchless. Either Bruce, or I, or both of us have gone through every other amp I own and tweaked it to my playing style and right now my two favorite amps of all time for my style are my modded Deluxe Reverb amps and my modded Princeton Reverb amps...they both sound like little Marshalls.

    Q4: I think of myself as being a pretty versatile songwriter and guitarist and enjoy playing acoustic guitar as much as electric. But I'd love to show off my blues and Jimi Hendrix chops.
    At the same time, I'd love to do a really spiritual album that would combine acoustic and electric guitar and one which would be hard to pigeon hole. Should it go in the Blues section? the Gospel section? the Folk Section? the Rock section? the New-Age section?

    Q5: In terms of unmodded amps, I love the tone Clapton and Hendrix and Jeff Beck and Eddie Van Halen and Eric Johnson got/get when they just plugged into a cranked 50 watt or 100 watt Marshall plexi. Much to loud for me...but I loved when they did it.

    Q6: The Joker...especially as played by Jack Nicholson.

    What in life inspires you the most?

    What are your pet peeves?
