    I believe that the Miami Vice soundtrack ended his career.

    Love the one about "still funding his career." ;)

    Yeah, the cat made a crapload of dough with that.

    For those of you with pink linen jackets, the Miami Vice soundtrack is available here at Jan's site...

    Dudes. All I can say is Cory Henry. This guy rocks the ever loving sheet out of anything with keys on it.




    Anyway, back on topic. Alan, I think the Yamaha THR10 is a clear winner. Will accomplish your goals in the near-term. Plus, if you go electric later, it will serve your learning and practicing time for years to come even if you buy a larger amp for playing with a band. It's a simple enough product that you can just twist knobs and experiment to find what you like.

    If you have never rocked the linen jacket with the sleeves pushed up you have missed the entire point of life. And the theme was pretty rockin'....

    I rocked a white linen jacket at my HS graduation. Sleeves pushed up and all.

    But that was a LONG time ago...

    The obvious questions are, do you still have it?

    And, does it still fit?

    No, destroyed in the wash. And undoubtedly no. After college I lifted weights for quite a while and my chest and shoulders are like 10 sizes bigger than in HS. I was a buck sixty in HS.

    I was a hearty 6'2" 143 lbs when I graduated from HS. Hence the bodia nickname. As in, "put on some weight you Cambodian." That was 32 years and 100lbs ago :oops:
