    Q1:  Where did you username come from?
    It was my nickname when I worked shifts. There were several Johns, I became Juan for no good reason I could see (you don't get to choose these things). I might also be a little geeky...

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?
    Yorkshire. Home of pie.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?
    To one day build a pedal so awesome that it brings about either world peace or a zombie apocalypse.

    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?
    Soldering iron.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?
    Tough, very tough. I'll go with Black Sabbath - Die Young

    At least it wasn't because your surname was Kerr... :)

    Q1:  Where did you username come from? My other big hobby is Hillman Imps - the two 'n' thing is because apparently in some areas of the country an Impman is someone who does unpleasant things to children. I found that out to my horror when I signed up to AOL in the late 90s... and had to take my PC to the police station. NOT fun.Q2:  Where in the world/country are you? UK - Midlands - NorthantsQ3:  What's your main musical ambition? To be musical and original. In a covers band. Its a pipe dream. Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one? 1972 Fender Telecaster... nuff said.Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one? Electricity - Captain Beefheart... well it is this evening!

    Hello there, I'm Ronnie, I'm 32 and married with a four year old daughter. I work as a lighthouse technician for Trinity House which means i get to travel a bit. it also means i should know something about electronics but the less said of that the better! Been playing guitar since I was 15 and been pretty much obsessed with it since my brother first showed me a the intro to All or Nothing by the Small Faces. Unfortunately that obsession hasn't extended to learning to play the thing properly! I get by ok but I'm sure if I bothered to take some proper lessons I'd improve no end. I'd always been interested in music but it was the likes of Oasis et all in the 90s that made me want to play an instrument. I wanted to play drums but my brother steered me towards guitar at my parents request. 

     1: I first used it as my eBay ID and ended up using it for everything else since. Can't remember why, probably a male version of long tall Sally or something! 

    2: Harwich, Essex. It's a bit of a dead end but I have a certain affection for the place. 

     3: just to keep gigging and enjoying it really. 

     4: My Gibson Fat Neck 335 in natural. It was a gift from my brother so it's priceless to me. The moment I picked it up I felt like I'd been playing it my whole life. 

     5: Impossible question! At this moment I'd probably say The Masterplan by Oasis but it'll probably change in ten minutes.

  • spacecadetspacecadet Frets: 671

    Q1:  My Dad always used to call me a space cadet. Usually after he came home from a parents evening at school!

    Q2:  North Notts born and bred but my spiritual home is Scotland. Or Florida.

    Q3:  I've been lucky enough to have lived most of my ambitions so far. Toured, had some fame, had endorsements and played to huge crowds around the world. Having not done that for a bunch of years I'd like to do it again.

    Q4:  I have to say it's a 2000 USA STD Strat. Pickups have been changed a bunch but other than that it's stock and I keep going back to it. Nicely reliced and worn in.

    Q5:  Adagio For Strings. Quite simply the most beautiful piece of music ever written.

    @Bigjon I'm not responsible enough to be a "ringleader"

    @viz is most definitely the Talisman

  • Q1:  Where did you username come from?
    I get a bit (a lot!) giddy when I've had sugar and/or caffinne (sp?).

    Q2:  Where in the world/country are you?
    Lancashire.

    Q3:  What's your main musical ambition?
    Kinda done them really. Played in front of 1000s, had songs played regularly on USA "hair metal" radio, been recognised by pretty girls (all of these a while ago). Now, I'd just be happy with not everyone in the pub saying that we were great - as they have a fag and listen from outside.
    Q4:  Your "best" bit of gear - just the one?
    Ooofff...my SG? My Explorer? My Marshall....errrrmmmm...errmmmm...My SG.

    Q5:  Your #1 ever track - again, just the one?
    To play? To listen to? I do like playing "Bad Boy Boogie" - but also Hallowed Be Thy Name....erm...erm...Live Wire.
