Relative Classic-ness

MTX guitar player Ted Angel in the medium guitar room with Rickenbacker guitar and Vox amp. My favorite old Silvertone amp is over on the right.

One of the guitar-slingers in my band plays through the rehearsal studio's beat-to-hell Silvertone. He loves that thing dearly, even though it will occasionally crap out while he abuses it (he is a big fan o' the gain).

Inimitable tone, though. Especially when he plays his likewise-Sears-Silvertone gee-tar through it. Vintage. Smooth. Warm.

By the way, Frank, these from-the-studio updates are supercool. Alkaline Trio did a similar thing while making their last album, only their updates were less... I dunno... personal.

Anyway: Neat!

Glad to see you back at Sharkbite! I wish I was there. I had a lot of fun w/ you guys during the Alcatraz recording. Please say hi to Kevin for me...if you even remember, you know, Matt from Sharkbite? It's been a while...anyway, keep up the posts if you can manage. They're great.

Living vicariously is still living!

Matt, man, I feel bad because I forwarded your email to Kevin and had been meaning to write back myself and never quite got around to it. Sorry man. I think of you everytime I can't figure out how to turn something on (which is nearly all the time.) Nice to hear from you, now as then.

Everybody else: Matt was an engineer on the Alcatraz sessions and all around cool guy.

Ditto geoff's. Not only a near real-time glimpse into the recording process, but into the recording process of one of the greatest bands in the world! Pretty fucking neat indeed!
