It just shows that clicking the ‘next blog’ button does find you something worthwhile eventually! What a great story!! I think i would have passed out with excitement if i had been you! lol He commented my blog a few months ago and i was hyper for a long time so you must have been walking on air! You are so lucky to have met such a great guy in person! Thanks for sharing the story! By the way do you play that particular guitar or keep it safe out of harms way?!
I play it! I usually treat it with the respect a really great playing guitar deserves, but sometimes I get carried away. Check out the end of this promo video for The HO – I seem to be bashing it about a bit…
Sweet!Nice photo. 😉
Nice to see your hand!Don’t forget, I’ve got a CD for you.
hope you successfully made boise a bit more noisy.
did you visit the falls or the river or whatever it is, that one natural landmark that makes boise worthwhile?
i remember i had a decent sandwich in boise once. that is truly all i can remember.
apparently students at university there are given to a great deal of alcoholic imbibing. i wonder whyever that should be.
wow, really enjoyed your story.
SO awesome that you got to meet him and he signed your guitar, and he listened to what you had to say
will you sign my sharpie with your guitar?
you’re an inspiration to others as well, you know.
Thank you for your post. I’ve been at the home recording game for a while now myself, and that was enlightening.
Wow. You guys rocked hard. I like that a lot.
Hi, Im Lauren Weisbecker, Will,the drummers daughter, who is twelve. Dad is still rockin on drums in the basement, and playing guitar in the living room, which can be annoying, especially when he plays old love songs to me from the early albums of KISS.
i loved that ’06 gig and jeannie even did! notorious antirocker that she is…just let me know when the zebu will ride again and i’ll be there (as long as it’s in the bay area that is!)
dude – you are definitely in the running for “hardest working man in show business” status. one would almost think you enjoy it or something.
the skynryrd cover sounds like blue cheer with vernon reid on guitar to me. slow down the heavy cop track and you could have fu manchu, and you know how much i love stoner rock. giant jeans, though, is truly like nothing else. commit that sucker to wax!
I remember the video game in Denver! I was not skeptical!
And damn, that’s some pretty major shredding for a fifteen year old, Mr. Needle & Spoon!
Man, do I miss this band. Mere words cannot express….!
Oh my god, thank you so much for recognizing me on Kingtone!! My dad, Will the drummer, showed me yesterday on his laptop!! I have to thank you a million times!!!!!! Now when I type my name in on Google, something actually comes up!! Now more about my dad, he is still rocking as usual, still has the curly hair that looks like a bush, and works at EPV inc. for solar power stuff. He is in Germany right now, but hey, he is doing great, thanks again, Lauren Weisbecker
oh wait i want to tell you something. My cousin is named Wendy Starland and has an amazing voice, you can check out her site at wendystarland.com thanks one more time!
Mr. Shred, I am humbled to hear your singe-ing tones on Heavy Cop once again. And I must say, that was some pretty good drum programming I churned out for that. I channeled Lars Ulrich for a brief flaming moment…
Mucho Lucio forever!
I know all three people in this band. What are the odds? Looking good, people. Suki reminds me of last Christmas when we happened upon Santacon on Peacock Lane–the most Christmasy street in the Northwest. My son was enchanted and curious about the blue drinks all the Santas were swigging out of water bottles. It isn’t Christmas around here without a bunch of stumbling, bellowing Santas, roaming down the sidewalk. Anyway, this looks like a good situation here.
