Yah Willie, don't buy that Fishman til you've payed me! 'Cause I want ANOTHER one for my D-35! My God will this foolishness ever end? Oh well, some people collect cars.
By the way, I almost DID meet a Beatle once. I owned a steel National Ukelele, and knew that George Harrison (whom I apologize for stabbing) collected them. Figured he might be interested, so I contacted his "people", with the details. I fantasized about being invited to his mansion, uke, in hand, where he'd treat Heather and I to tea, and then give me huge bucks for the uke.
Got a short note back (from his "people" naturally) saying that he was only interested in "mint" condition instruments, and the picture of mine indicated it was "worn". End of fantasy.
My friend, Django-style guitarist, Robin Nolan, has played at many Harrison parties, and seems unimpressed....the dirty bird!
