    Needless to say I think this is one of the better bands of any period in time, the music of 20 years ago, along with the latest album (want that life) has a timeless perspective, They're live performances are a thing to behold.It's great to see professional musicians that still can mesmerize a crowd. (Pittsburgh's Hard Rock Show) what a treat.

    reply to What's a Magster

    She is one of the most beautiful people I have ever had the pleasure of sharing ones Company with, just after eight years her little problem with the haughty taughty wine bottle got to be a little too much.

    And I do hope that she checks in to the rehab facility of her choice,

    Yes ,I do feel younger, minus her,enough to go do the things I like. (see bands that I missed in the 80's and 90's (THE FIXX))

    I fly better, But we all know that's because of the autopilot.

    And here's a piece of advice for those that can read. DON'T EVER THINK YOU AS A PERSON CAN COMPETE WITH A SUBSTANCE ABUSE PROBLEM, IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN.

    Also when landing your plane, USE THE CHECKLIST, AND PUT THE F**KING LANDING GEAR DOWN. YES DOWN. REMEMBER FUEL WEIGHS 8LBS A GALLON..........

    See you bye, from john in pittsburgh, on a rainy overcast day (Yes just like a typical Boston Day)

    O.K. Let's go to something different

    What year Stratocaster Does Jamie West-Oram Play?

    Is the finish original? or has it been stripped?

    and What effects does he use? GUITAR EFFECTS

    What kind of pick-ups?

    If there are any of the roadies out there that would know, Please DO Tell, Or if Jamie reads this, Please DO Tell.

    From A Enquiring Mind.....................................Yes, Strats are best.


    It is in my opinion, that he as a guitar player, just plays extraordinarily well , on a virtuoso level , as was seen in Pittsburgh at the hard rock cafe.

    They were all on the money that night, it's just that he was exemplary that night, especially mid set.....


    Pleasure ,,,,,,,,,,,John in Pittsburgh

    Woody is a Schechter strat. He used to have a gorgeous dark finish with gold mirrored pick guard, but Woody's been a well-used guitar for about 20 years now. Woody's coolest modification is a Floyd Rose tremolo system. I believe he has EMG-SA pickups. Diamond05 and others have written more about Woody here - might run a search on the word guitar and see what comes up.

    John... some of us know this all too well....

    If it comes down to the liquor(or whtever has a hold on this person) or you... UNTIL this person is willing and ready to accept reality.... YOU , will never win... because that person is not having a love affair with you...you are only a mere second choice....

    The book "Under the Influence"... explains it ..in clear and concise undestanding.... if you have not read it .... I highly sugguest it ...Jeanne
