    Q1:  Same as MR to keep it simple - I often wish I'd chosen something more creative lol

    Q2:  Mostly in East Yorkshire

    Q3:  Just to keep playing guitar, do lots of gigs and keep improving...

    Q4:  My PRS Guitars - Custom 24 has done more gigs than I can count

    Q5:  Impossible to answer - usually whatever I'm learning that day - I love lots of prog (Marillion, Rush, Floyd) and all things rock but I'm pretty open to playing and gigging anything :)

    37 year old, recently married, no kids (but under significant pressure), busy career with too many hours has turned music from an ambition into a much needed and valued escape. Q1. Din has been my nick name from an early age. Dude was added, can't recall why, probably needed more than 3 letters. Q2. Pinner, Middlesex, sleepy but pleasant with easy access to big smoke. Q3. Would like to start plying in a band again, it's just so hard to find good muso's who don't want to take it too seriously, I'll keep trying. Q4. My custom deluxe Strat is no. 1. Q5. Impossibles. But I'll pick one of many - waiting for superman, the flaming lips.

    Q3:  To keep rocking as long as the hands hold out :) Then to make a pickup for God's Telecaster.

    I think he plays a Jem, mate.

    Q1:  Seeing Eddie Vedder play an inpromptu version of 'Deadman' (only on youtube unfortunately). Best thing I ever saw.

    Q2:  West Oxfordshire.

    Q3:  None. I just like noodling in the house and love guitars.

    Q4:  After years of fannying around buying expensive stuff I bought a CV tele and it's perfect for my needs. My KABL cable comes a close second mind!

    Q5:  Dreamtime by The Jam.

  • ESBlondeESBlonde Frets: 3343
    Q1, I'd just bought a natural/blonde ES335 and needed something t register on a Gibson related forum. Not imagiative enough to change it and use it online in forums. My real name is Emp Fab... I mean Kevin. I'm 54 3/4

    Q2, Suffolk, near the middle.

    Q3, Done all I'm likely to achieve, so retaining enough health to play a few more years and sharing/encouraging others to have some fun with it.

    Q4, An original 1968 50w marshall plexi head. It really is that good I haven't had to replace it in over 3 decades.

    Q5, Too tough to call but probably Man of the World by F/Mac Peter Green.

  • Paul_CPaul_C Frets: 5619

    Either of my self-built basses.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one? Trio - Da Da Da

  • chillidoggychillidoggy Frets: 13979

    It's the old Chillidog here! My real name is Ian, I'm 54 years old. I've been married to my missus, who's my best friend and supporter, for 32 years. I don't have any pets, but I love cats, and I have a 24 year old son.

     

    1.   It came about when we were members of a local sailing club, and members used to make rolls at lunchtime on a roster basis. Some members' rolls were not exactly brilliant, and so some bright spark started up a Yahoo group to rate the club lunch rolls on a 1-10 scale, incognito. I wanted hotdog as a user name, but ended up with chillidoggy. I've stuck with it ever since, although it sounds pretty stupid to me.

    2.   I was originally born and bred in Folkestone, but I've been living in Margate since 1999.

    3.   My main musical ambition is to keep going with my current band, gigging about once a month. Any other musical ambitions are pointless because I'm never going to achieve those which are simply pipe dreams.

    4.   Oh, that's a hard one, because there are two; My 2002, 1967 Reissue Flying V. Undeniably road-worn, and a bit bashed around, I know I look like some ageing twat rocker with it, but it just feels so right to me. The other guitars are nowhere near as nice. The other is my Cornford Hurricane head I've just made.

    Another tricky one. But I'm going for Black Sabbath's 'Paranoid' album. Totally reprogrammed my life when I was given it by a mate of mine, aged 13. It's the root cause of the lifetime love of rock.

  • citizen68citizen68 Frets: 172
    1) Citizen was my nickname at school because I played the theme tune from 'Citizen Smith' on the piano in first music class.

    2) Live near the Mourne mountains roughly half way between Belfast & Dublin.

    3) To keep playing out as long as I can - been playing in bands (mostly covers but recorded some originals too) since I was 17/8 - I'm 45 now. Want to do a bit more recording/writing too.

    4) My 'D' clone amp - Ceriatone Bluesmaster HRM 100

    5) Jimi's Voodoo Chile - it kept me at the guitar until I could jam out a decent version of it.
    Seemed like a good idea.....

    1. When I registered for the old musicradar I was home sick and I was registering Whilst watching some shitty Australian soap - where the dog was called "travis" - et voila

    2. Live in Dorchester, Dorset. A beautiful part of the country until the summer when we get besieged by bloody holiday makers on their way to Weymouth

    3. I'd like to start another band at some point when time away from work and fatherhood allow. Something in the vein of QOSTA or old school grunge a la soundgarden, sonic youth, mudhoney etc. I've played in my current band for the last 12 years and sometimes yearn for something else other than wedding crap.

    4. I suppose if the house was burning and I had to grab one piece it would be my '81 Burny Supergrade with wolftone pAFs. Pedals and amps are all replaceable - that's not

    5. It's hard in world of so many good songs to pick just one, so instead of picking my favourite, the one that inspired me to pick up the guitar and play was the delicate sound of thunder versions of Comfortably Numb and Sorrow.
