Chapters
00:00 - Playing Boy Meets Girl - Waiting For A Star To Fall


Notes
Uhhhhh….why the fuck is Larry playing “Waiting For A Star To Fall”???...is this some kind of career suicide or something??

Because it’s fucking awesome that’s why.

One must be confident in their manhood to attempt this…

I played this track for my boys last night in the car for the first time, and they were totally blown away by it…cuz it’s an amazing sounding record that has more hooks than a slaughterhouse...

Hello lads and lasses…the kind folks at Nobels were kind enough to send me a 30th anniversary ODR-1 Overdrive pedal to try out, so I thought I would give it a swing.
Tell me what you think.

I realize this subject matter has been perhaps flogged on a bit too much in the past, but I still get a million questions regarding ODR-1s, so there must still be people wondering...so here we are,

The sweet lads at Nobels asked me for a short quote so I will say this:
“I am extremely proud to be a long time card carrying member of the Nobels family, the finest overdrive pedals ever made”
