Johnnie Walker

I've never been good at filling these things out, but here it goes. I like long walks in cold mountain air, preferably with snow on the ground. I enjoy drinking fine soda by the crackling fire, and deep tissue massage. I hope to one day grow up an become and astronaut, so I can fly to Venus to see if that's really where women come from. If it's true, I'll bring one back for you, too. Unless it's a dude you want, and then you're out of luck...sorry. My favorite month is October, because Halloween is the best holiday ever! It allows me to openly proclaim my love and obsession with scary movies without being seen as some sort of lunatic. Okay, not too much of a lunatic. I'm a huge fan of rock and metal music, and you'll often hear me blasting the control room speakers into oblivion every night during my show. My engineer doesn't like me very much, since he has to fix them. Sorry, Mike.

New Pickup for Guitarists Lets You Play Bass at the Same Time

Sometimes you don't have a bass player.  It happens a lot.  Sometimes you perform alone, and want the guitar to sound bigger, and more full.

Here's a really cool Kickstarter campaign going on right now.  This guy works for Steve Vai, and has come up with a pretty cool invention.  It's called A Little Thunder.

It's a guitar pickup that fits in a regular humbucker slot on the guitar, and has sort of a stacked pickup to give a humbucker sound in a single-coil space, and another couple coils for just the low E and A strings, to send to bass sound.

How Extreme Do You Like Your Haunted Houses? This One is Insane!

I love Halloween. I've not made this a secret. This is the single most fun holiday ever celebrated, and it tops Christmas for the sheer amount of fun you can have.

OK, getting gifts for Christmas is pretty cool, too.

Going through a good haunted house, or something like the Witches Woods at the New Salem Corn Maze is a really cool experience, and every time you go through, there's still a fun thrill about it.

Courtney Love’s Isolated Vocal and Guitar Tracks Sound Amazing…ly Horrible

Rule number one for musicians performing live:

Never piss off the sound guy, or the dude recording your show.  One will make you sound like crap once at the show, the other will share your awfulness with the world many times over!

That's exactly what this guy has done.

Weird Al Movie Shows the Real Weird Al Life Story

Weird Al Yankovic has become such a phenomenon over the decades since he began making parody songs, and playing his accordion.  But has his story ever been truly told?

Not it will be.

Every single moment of this movie is based on complete fact.  There's no way even a single word of it has been altered in any way.
