Wink step 2

OK just got bak from the Gibston vally concert 10cc starship and Lynyrd Skynyrd, way cool except starship they always sucked abit, the girl doin the grace slick numbers was gooood tho, I'd a listened to here allday if i could.

anyway on to the new amp build hav populated the turret board. Ive got enough dmn stared earth to sink a battleship stufin em all in the chassis is going to be fun(not).

and i hav drilled the chassis for the valve sockets, fuse holder andswiths for voltage and speaker impedace. need to go down to the olds and use their a3 printer to print out my front panel before i drill it.

Starship?
Was Mickey Thomas on Vocals?
Or hey,, how is the new lead guitarist? I have not seen them since Mark Abrahamian died.
I was backstage with those guys a couple years ago out this way, my brothers band opened for them.. Had a blast.



Back to the build,, Looking Good!!

Yip was Mickey Thomas on vocal for the most part, but it was Stephanie Calvert that i liked an not just coz she's hot, her grace slick is as good as grace ever was.

That was one real fantastic day, living at the *** end of nowhere we don't get too many big name bands. I've alrdy booked next years tickets and they don't even know who's playin yet lol.

and NOW back to the build lol it's takin longer than it should had to use big red at the weekend gig wanted to use the new one but its still just parts lol.
