Dad and I listened to a lot of music through this stereo system (McIntosh MAC 1900 receiver, Bang & Olufsen Beogram 1700 turntable, McIntosh XR14 loudspeakers), but three songs stand out: "Renegade" (Styx), "Heartache Tonight" (Eagles), and this one by Bob Seger.... I found an unplayed copy of this online earlier this week and was excited to play it. I should've cleaned it first (clearly), but it's clean now. I still remember watching Dad clean his vinyl carefully with dish soap - mind the labels!!!! (I just use an RCA brush and solvent -LOL.) #Records #VinylCollection #Vinyl #RecordPlayer #Turntable #OldTimeRockAndRoll #BobSeger #BobSegerAndTheSilverBulletBand #Styx #Eagles #McIntosh #BangAndOlufsen

It's the 50th anniversary of the release of "Good Vibrations" by The Beach Boys (yikes!). It was billed as Brian Wilson's "pocket symphony," and that seems pretty reasonable to me. I grew up hearing the legendary stories of how the record was made and all about the mystique of it. It's all very exciting and interesting. At the end of the day, though, it's just a great song, a great performance, and a great recording, so it's stood the test of time. I pre-ordered a copy of this 50th anniversary vinyl release, and it's really cool. Orange-marble vinyl, several versions of the song, alternate takes, etc...pretty cool. Check it out with fresh ears. #BeachBoys #BrianWilson #GoodVibrations #RecordingStudio #Music #Timeless

One of my favorite shots from last fall, when I picked up my 9mm Kel-Tec SUB-2000 and M&P Shield (Performance Center) - both really fun guns to shoot and easy to transport... #FunWithGuns #Guns #9mm #ZombieApocalypse #2ndAmendment #KelTec #Sub2000 #MPShield #SmithWesson

Steely Dan is, without a doubt, the greatest studio band of all time, and Walter Becker was a magnificent writer, guitarist, and bassist (sang a couple of good tunes, too)... how sad. #SteelyDan #WalterBecker #WeLostAnotherGreat #TheGreats

Guitars are my first love, but (like many musicians) I'm also a huge fan of custom cars and trucks. Guitars and cars are functional artwork - form and function coming together perfectly... Anyway, here's my custom '94 Chevy C1500. A few things left to do, but she's almost completed (if there is such a thing).

Just one more...for Aaron Durante. Also, even after 31 years, even though I get paid to play and teach the guitar, I still hate and, therefore, avoid the F chord. There - I said it. It's been said.

My brother-in-law, Cody (@localmaker), is working on a new custom emblem for one of the amps at my studio (Level III Productions). This is a first run he created using a filament that contains brass, which can then be polished and painted. 3-D printing is pretty amazing, and so is Cody!
