Thanks, Nedd.

PSP is a rare ailment for which there is no cure. It was also the cause of Durley Moore's death. It's a cruel disease.

Drew - I have had some good recommendations for better quality IEMs and really should pull the trigger. The regular sound guy at my Summer gig is good so any dearth of quality in my IES.

I use Westone UM-2s. I can't say I like them as I consider them tone-suckers but they are reliable. I'm obliged to use them on two regular gigs that I do.

That's a work of art!

I'm no engineer but the build-quality looks better than anything I have seen.

Yes, Ken. I was on those early records too, but playing guitar. My 12-string is buried in the mix of 'Where Do You Go To, My Lovely?'

Not a steel player by any means, but a major part of my life. Peter had a massive UK hit called 'Where Do You Go To, My Lovely?' in 1969. He was the brother of singer Eden Kane with whom I had worke ...

I was told it meant ' AS A T-elecaster'

I played a Gibson Super 400 in my early years and, I'm ashamed to say, didn't even try a Telecaster until 1966 (thanks, Gerry Hogan!)

It was a Eureka moment and I loved it from the first time I had ...

The only thing I like about that video showing me playing with George Harrison in about 1976 (it shows up on here from time to time) is that it serves to remind me to never let myself get up to over 3 ...

This is Tommy White's old steel, folks - don't miss this chance. This is what he played on his 'By Request' CD.
