I don't understand guys who listen to the classic rock station every day. It's the same handful of songs I've already heard 50K times, over and over. Then, it's interlaced with ads for weight loss and pecker pills.

At work, we listen to everything from Alison Krause to Rob Zombie. It is not unusual to hear bluegrass, dub-step, old school funk, heavy metal, country and folk on the same day.

I used to play the radio. Now I usually play the 300 disk CD player. ;)

I'd fit right in, then. If you look through the CDs in my truck, you'd find Queensryche, Five for Fighting, Linda Ronstadt, and Neil Diamond, and many others that don't seem to belong together. I seldom play them since I installed the satellite radio, but once in a while I remember what I spent on them and blow the dust off.

Haven't been to a Bonamassa concert, but have seen a few broadcast on MTVLive channel. Next time he plays a festival in New Orleans, I might just go. I hate going into the city during festivals, though. The way these people drive gives new meaning to "population density"... :lol:

One of the venues I saw him at only seats about 700. And I got front row. He puts on an awesome show.

you build them from the ground up, or modify existing tube amps? I'm looking into buying a couple of Marshall 100w heads.

I scratch build mine from the ground up, hybrid turret/PCB .125 thick, plated through holes. I just build for fun I don't sell amps, I donated the last batch I built to some worthy musicians. You could try building your own Marshall from a kit its not that hard. Scratch building is more work and more expensive, depends how OCD you want to get. Just the components for my amps cost more than a store bought Marshall JVM 410h.

One of my planned projects, a figured hard wood TIG welded framed head cabinet. :twisted:

Below are the boards for a SLO 100 style 3 channel amp, 6L6 100 watt.
