Well – I guess those of us without Billionare Parents will have to settle for buying one of those little ol’ $2000+ new model bursts. A genuine 58-60 can be worth half a million – that’s more than a condo in Venice. And I worry about my LP thats maybe worth $1500. I don’t think I could handle owning a guitar worth that much.

Excel – This one of the best metal bands I have seen live. Saw them back at the old SOMA on Market Street in Downtown San Diego, probably 90 or 91. I was seeing Pennywise or Ghoolspoon or Unwritten Law and EXCEL stole the show. I had seen them years earlier on the strip – don ‘t remember the venue, probably whiskey or troubadour. I was drinking a lot and the details exscape me now after a few decades. Always liked hardcare and I was really into Slayer and DRI at the time and really could get into what these guys were doing. Great Show – Amazing energy.
