Sad when a luthier dies.
Very nice axe, although I don't care for dreadnoughts personally.

I though Wesley Warren was going to undergo some free surgery by a good samaritan to take care of his medical condition. Last year I saw a special on his unusual medical condition -I believe it was reported that the abnormal growth began after he took a hit to the nuts-after a while, he could no longer put on pants and instead had to wear a hoody as pants. Don't think he left his home for the longest time. Eventually he received home visits a few times a week by a medical assistant. I can't imagine carrying a 132 lb backpack around on a 24hr. basis let alone a body part weighing as much. Tough break Wesley. :(

The Rev. Fred Phelps, leader of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kan., is reportedly near death.

May he rot in Hell...

Thanks, as soon as I read the first sentence I remembered these assholes. They hate everybody pretty much. Until I was 9 I went to a couple of bablest churches. All them suckers worried me and still do. They are way to seriously diluted with they're own self worth for my tastes. I'd like to transport the leaders, nekked, into the middle of SF's North Beach area right at dusk. Heh, heh, hehhhhh...they'd show their "true colours " there, eh? ...or the Haight. Make 'em drop some acid. I don't know if they can be fixed. One can only hope. I'd be nice if they could baptist nicely on some remote spot where it doesn't cause wars and murders though.

I was just thinking what "hell" would be for him.....does vaseline still work in extremely warm temps?

Stooges Drummer Scott Asheton Dead at 64

Now Iggy is the last of the original Stooges :|
I knew he was in bad health since he hadn't toured with the band for the past couple of years. Just a few years earlier his brother and fellow Stooge, Ron Asheton died.
