Loved the '82 team - The Dalton-James gang, Lance Smith, "ET phone home" Martin, James Britt, Jeffrey Dale, Liffort Hobley, Eugene Daniel, Shawn Burks, Leonard Marshall, Rydell Melancon, Clay Parker & Juan Betanzos.
Great memories from that football season - especially the Florida State game....

I can't recommend this enough - go on a Windstar cruise - they're huge sailboats. Only 200 passengers max, 100 staff, impeccable service & food, no kids allowed. You get to go to ports that the big cruise ships can't go. Usually the best deal on their rates are through Costco. The best part is you g...

+1 on the Nashville area...specifically Williamson county right outside to the South (Murfreesboro is great, too). It reminds me of the great parts of growing up in Baton Rouge in the 70's & 80's with none of the bad. Friendly people from all over - and lots of ex-pat Louisianans. Very kid/family fr...

Grew up in BR and moved to Nashville 20 yrs ago. It reminds me a lot of the good things I remember living in BR - with none of the bad.

Couple of questions:
1. What's your price range?
2. Are you wanting a combo amp or a head with a cabinet?
3. Are you gigging or just playing around the house?

This is one of those questions guitar players throw around all the time - there's no right or wrong. The answer is usually based on what you like and/or what you play (if you're a player). Vai is an amazing player, but not my thing. On the EVH vs. Vai issue, I put Eddie ahead of Steve. Eddie was an ...
