    Good grief, I thought it was dead too! 

    I used to go on there a bit in the early noughties but it eventually got dominated by American yoofs who apparently all had Les Pauls, PRS’s and Marshall stacks, despite not one of them owning a camera that could take a photo of their, uhh, killer set-up dude.

    I've stumbled over it over the years. Did they use to have a huge TAB section? That's what comes to mind anyway. 
    Who invaded Spain in the eight century?
    The Moops.

    That was a problem.

    The loss of the reviews section was a killer for them too.  To be able to read reviews by real people not magazines was the best thing about it.

    I once put up a review of a Squier ProTone Tele on there. You had to include your details in the review, so my email address was attached, available for anyone to see. I share my name (but spelt differently) with a quite well known guitarist: Laurence Archer from UFO, Wild Horses and Stampede. Next thing I know I get an email from an American guy, who’d obviously got the two of us mixed up, asking if I was interested in depping for a gig at the Houston Astrodome? 

    I must admit I was semi-tempted.  :)

    Although last time I was aware of Laurence he was running a pub in Wolverhampton so maybe long term you dodged a bullet.

    He's still gigging, plays with an outfit called Grand Slam, they've just done the Rambling Man festival and got decent reviews. He looks bloody good for his age (unlike me, sadly).

    It used to be the best news source for Pro Audio until they went all forumsy.
    When it swapped format I stopped visiting.

    I saw him,IIRC,  with the original Phil Lynott's Grand Slam probably 35 years ago. I think before that ( vague memory this) he was in a band called Archer with his dad.

    I used the forums a lot from 2003-10, great source of knowledge and trading with the UK members. 

    I'll have to try remember my used name and see when I last logged in.

    Phil O'keefe was an ace mod, excellent source of knowledge.

    I was english_bob there too- the effects forum was great until they changed something in the forum software and most of the forum regulars packed it in overnight. I know @Heartfeltdawn used to be a regular there too.

    And yes, Phil O'Keeffe was a bloody good moderator.

    Don't talk politics and don't throw stones. Your royal highnesses.

    I spent quite a bit of time on the FX section before it imploded. My username was first used there too.  I agree that Phil was/is a cool guy.  I wonder what ever happened to RoboPimp, Jrak and all the others.

    Im guessing they've all left their music rooms which had 3 massive Pedaltrain Pro boards with 15 fuzz pedals and 8 delay pedals and found girlfriends. 

    HCFX was great in the day, just been back on it looking at some of the threads. And for the life of me can't remember my username !

    Some names from the old HC sig:

    Robopimp was great fun. Zachman and the "My racks: let me show you them" memes will live forever. The shampoozie thread. 

    KittieRose for some leaps of logic that really were something else.

    I may be remembering it wrongly but wasn't the beginning of the end when they revamped the whole platform that the forums ran on? I seem to recall a gargantuan flounce of users because it was different, or some features didn't work the same as before ? 

    I always found it hard work - I think because it was so busy and so many users seemed to use it as a way of passing their entire day - threads went OT so fast it was crazy. The FX section particularly. Gang lines got drawn over how you liked "your mids" - scooped, boosted, balanced or "haunted" lol
