Uncle Larry STILL tickin’ after 11 straight hours of intense sessioneering….

Why does he do it you ask?
Because he knows that one day he is gonna look back on these times as the REAL good old days and he knows that one day he is gonna really gonna miss the shit out of all this music and all these people.

End of day one of two solid days of Gwen Stefani sessions…a little tired, but absolutely thrilled to playing with such an amazing band in an amazing studio with an amazing artist.

and totally unrelated...you guys know how i sometimes talk about how after all these years of buying and selling thousands of "vintage" (we used to just call them "old") guitars, that i can literally tell just by looking at detailed photos when a guitar has THE MAGIC??
i promise you...i am rarely ever wrong about this.

if i lived in Oz i would buy this fuckin' thing in a SECOND....i swear to the Lord Almighty i have no affiliation whatsoever to the seller....i have no dog in this race i swear....but i just KNOW in my heart that this guitar right here is BANGIN'...and one of you Australian viewers out there should buy it immediately.
