Sadly, RIP George Young. Writer/producer of dozens of hits, Friday on My Mind, Love is in the Air and most of early ACDC. Brother of Angus and Malcolm, one half of Vanda&Young and Flash and the Pan. Legend.

Are you hung over from a night of debauchery? do you smell like cheap perfume and are you covered in glitter? Do you have a bunch of 1 dollar bills in your pockets?  :P
Hope you had a good one!

Had a running first for me today.  During a half marathon this morning, I got an ocular migraine around mile 10.  I've had them before but it was weird trying to discern between it or some other running induced issue.  All good now!

Tom Petty - In memorium
« on: October 04, 2017, 07:25:51 PM »
So, after hearing the sad news of Tom's passing, I decided to learn and play one of his tunes at the jam session I attend in Cambridge most Tuesdays.
I chose 'Breakdown', which I first heard from a cover by Grace Jones. I liked it then and I like it now.....

Unfortunately, since so many guitarists turned up on Tuesday, I didn't get time to play it. Maybe on Thursday, at the Newmarket jam session.

So, this afternoon, I decided to have a shot at recording said toon. Here is the result (a 'puter crash made re-recording gits a necessity  >:( )
I'm quite pleased with it, even though the lead guitar tone is a little dark.

Guitars are through my Hughes and Kettner Tour Reverb, lead is through the crunch channel.
Vox are recorded using my new Rode condenser mic, double tracked.

Well, if that's the best you can do.......  :-*

But seriously, excellent stuff, White.  Tom would be proud - and probably want you as the new main Heartbreaker.  Really nice work, mate...  ;)
