    I'm not compromising any values but, the comfort thing... yeah.

    Maybe it's just because I spent five nights this week tracking drums as an engineer and having to play the "dad" role? Telling people to turn off fans, don't move the microphones, scolding people for moving the microphones that I told them not to move, etc.etc.

    They're super talented and great guys, like I said, it's me not them. They're just regular band guys that do regular band guy stuff, I think I just haven't been retired long enough to be jazzed about it.

    Okay, and it is a little bit about them, they don't sound like Kool & the Gang or Gap Band so....

    Not anymore, unfortunately a couple guys left... including the trumpet player.

    With the new guys the sound has changed a bit. After the first show since reforming I've had a few non-musician friends refer to us as: A jam band or my personal favorite.. a Mexican Emo band. :oops:

    chicago really does have everything. (i would listen to a darkwave spanish language kool wind and fire, if there was at least a sax-ish guitar player.)

    It would make sense, Morrisey has a huge following with Mexican teenage boys.

    That’s in fact the sake, the whole sake, and nothing but the sake. The guitar purists’ purist.

    I could and have done something productive on a plain Epiphone. Song quality, skill and recording finesse outweighs instrument quality 20 to 1.

    Every Breath You Take will sound radical and ingenious regardless of the instruments used.

    Yeah, I gave up "making it" and trying to attract attention a few years ago.

    I've played about a dozen gigs a year with friends the last couple years. It's cool and easy, but sometimes the lulls between are too much. I still truly love playing with others.

    Now I'm working with some guys on a new blues band. It's pretty much always been my favorite style to play and what comes most naturally to me. We're all in it because we want to be there and we're having a blast. Enjoying yourself is what really matters.

    Hmm, so what if you don't possess any of these afore mentioned things? Asking for a friend...he's got a good guitar but the rest not so much...o_O
