Surf. Had lots of it when I lived in Sydney, bugger all now I'm in the middle of england again :cry:
An old WEM 4x12 cab someone nicked from a rehearsal room.
A vox les paul copy I sold for £50.
A vox AC50 amp I probably sold / lost.
That 1/4" tape of tracks I did in 1998 with five tracks on I haven't heard since.
Aside from that, no?

He died when I was two years old. So in a way I can't miss him. Would love to have seen him live or at least see him on television live and getting to see all his interviews and knowledge bestowed upon us. Now I just look at old videos on youtube, wishing I was there to ask him a question.

Oh, and my '76 type 2 VW kombi, and my '96 VW caravelle, written off earlier this year.

Technically I've never seen him live, and though I'd heard Gruppo Sportivo's cover of Take Your Clothes Off When You Dance I was not aware of his existence for some time. But I didn't know he'd passed on until I'd started listening to him and there's a period of a few weeks when I believed he was still alive and making music.
I miss having the idea of being able to see him live sometime, of being able to rush to the CD-seller and get a fresh Zappa album... of being able to score his autograph or shake his hand...

My condolences. I have a friend who has a basset named Ralphy. He's getting up there in age, so we'll face that day soon.

:(

I didn't realize you were such a youngster. With a name like NuclearProstate I would have guessed you were another old curmudgeon like many of us on here. It's nice to see some young blood getting on board here every once in awhile.

Young and impressionable. Yeah but I basically am an old fart, I own a house, am married, drink ale and hate most people younger than me. Just a person with an obsessive personality, I latch on to things mightily, like Frank.

That being said I don't miss my ryko Apostrophe album, I'm so glad I replaced it with the 2012 master.

I miss being young and not having to care, but don't we all?
