Long Weekend Party Post…

Hey everyone, so it looks as though there is a long weekend coming down the pike, and I just had to share a fun image I put together in the spirit of all things “party”. Well as far as what the term party means to me anyway. So I say, enjoy the weather, the good friends, the great outdoors, music and refreshments in a safe and enjoyable manner.

If I could have worked my Moosehead Gibson Guitar into this I would have, but I think a flaming red Gibson is a very very close second (not too unlike my other Gibson for that matter).

Enjoy your time off, bask in the late summer suns glow, and raise yourself a Moosehead.

Oh yeah, and a big, huge, massive shout out to my friends ” The Good For Naughts“, who have a 19+ show coming up in Toronto later this month (August 16, 2012). The Doors open at 9:00 pm at the Smiling Buddha Bar, and a few other spectacular bands will be playing as well.  The Low Hanging Lights (www.lowhanginglights.com) and Jessica Speziale (www.jessicaspeziale.com). Cover at the door is a measly $5 bucks, so go, have a beverage and enjoy yourself with other like minded individuals.

You can contact me directly if you would like more info about the show.




My baby is coming home.

So about a month ago I was playing my guitar in an empty warehouse at work when I had a real shitty accident. My guitar slid off of my makeshift stage and sheared the headstock almost clean off. I was not amused. I took it rather well considering the damage that was done. I guess after a solid 90 minutes of rocking out at ten thousand decibels (I jest it was probably closer to 110) I was all played out and didn’t fly into a rage or throw a tantrum. I had a few choice words to say but can you blame me!?!

Anyway I just got the call that my Moosehead Custom Painted Gibson Studio Guitar was ready to come back home. I am thrilled to bits. My guess is that the 100+ degree warehouse and the 100% humidity worked its evil magic on my guitar and snapped its neck pretty cleanly after it took its tumble.

Warning bad language used (but not much).

Any way I will be glad to have it back. For anyone else that wants to see how it looks here is a photo. It is broken in the image.


That is all for now. So go rock out and enjoy music if you are able.

Brief update: The repaired guitar is back in my hands at home, and plays like a charm once more. A big shout out & thank you to the repair guys at Long & Mcquade.
