I've learned to appreciate the seeming little things in life. I may have mentioned this before but in the back of the stage at a club in Detroit (left by the band that was to play the weekend after the Thursday we played) was a vintage Fender amp. I don't remember if it was a super reverb, a twin reverb or what but what really tickled me was the old worn paisley print amp cover. It brought me back to a point in time, when I was a kid, when everything was paisley print or polka dot or something similar. I really got a kick out of that amp cover. Sci-fi take on old gear: wouldn't it be cool if in the future you would have a gadget that would be able to play back all the sounds that came from that guitar, mandolin, blues harp or even that slide bar or bottleneck? Or what if walls could talk?
