  1. I’m sorry, I forgot Elmore James, place him where you would like. Also, to those who read some guitar rag or another and don’t knoweth of what floweth from their holes, please, verbally masturbate elsewhere…you suck at the axe and always will…peace

  2. I’ve only ever seen maybe 20 guitarists in my life, and since I picked up a guitar and played it before I have to conclude that I am the 21st greater guitarist of all time.
