Homekoolin’ Bonus “Stuff Larry Used To Own”

00:00 - Montage of gear

When you’re bored out of your mind in a hotel room in the middle of nowhere, you have time to do things like this.

I wish you guys could REALLY understand the extent of my lifelong addiction to old guitars, amps, synthesizers, drums, cars….it would be hard for me to explain it.

As you probably know, i have never been one to actually KEEP anything…i have always thought that constantly cycling through cool old stuff was way more fun than ever trying to “build a collection”. To me its always been a quest to LEARN what this stuff can really do, and i always thought that you can only REALLY learn what something can do is to actually own it and use it in the heat of battle.

It all started when i was about 18, in 1987 roughly. I purchased a chopped 65 sg special for 350 bucks and from that point it was ON.

At this point, there is no telling how many thousands of old guitars i have bought and sold….i usually tried to keep at least one photo of whatever it was somewhere in the archives.

This deep dive into my current phone photo stash probably represents less than 1 percent of the lunacy of my old guitar/amp/car addiction….but i thought it might be fun to stroll down memory lane for a minute on a sunday.

Yes, there are a few i should have never got rid of….but live and learn i say!

Hope you enjoy kids

Homeskoolin’ Road Life Bonus

00:00 - Room tour and road pictures

Casino gigs are not normally my idea of a good time….but just as a general life rule, when your hotel room has double doors, you know things are gonna be ok.

After a nightmarish 6 hour ride in a goddamned RV with no AC in the bunk area, and finally getting in to Tulsa at 4:30am last night, this fancy room was definitely a sight for sore eyes.
