Actually, I stand corrected Robert was on rhythm guitar and Javier Escovedo was the singer...

anyways here some great rare TV footage of the Zeros from 1977, drummer clearly not into miming so much...

I didn't know any of this and I still don't know what you're talking about.

The Plimsouls buried at the bottom of that 80s show at the Anthem doesn’t involve Peter Case, just Eddie Munoz the lead guitarist.

Per the Wikipedia

In 2016 Muñoz registered a trademark for the band's name, and has been touring as the Plimsouls without Case, Pahoa, or Ramirez. This was all done without Peter Case’s blessing.

corporate music is weird.

Alicia Keys' Super Bowl flub already erased from the official record
Alicia Keys sounded less-than-perfect during the Super Bowl Halftime Show, but you wouldn't know if you watched the YouTube version

i recently bought myself a guitar as a birthday present.  the missus had some... questions about my purchase.  luckily i did my research in advance, and when she questioned my so-called extravagance i quickly pointed out that, while expensive, it wasn't one of the The 14 most expensive guitars of all time.  some beauts on that list...

a used but "excellent condition" (tbd) ESP E-II Eclipse, honey burst with fishmans.  the color & pup combo is rare, i've only ever seen seymour duncans on the honey burst.  also got a deal on a Blackstar HT Club 40 MKIII tube amp, and a ridiculously cheap Line 6 Pod HD as a headphone amp/sim.  stuff arrives on friday.  i've fallen off the musical bus in recent years, looking forward to getting back into long nights of scales and noodling...

Upon clarification, not sure the missus was concerned about the price
