Similar to the hypnotic effect that AC/DC music had on me when I first heard it (it was the LIVE Album “If You Want Blood, You’ve Got It” and it was, I believe, 1979), as soon as I set eyes on the photos of Angus Young embracing his Gibson SG, it was love at first sight, and certainly “Love at first Feel”. It’s a love that has continued to grow for about thirty years (even considering that I’ve tried far too many brands and models of guitars) the Gibson SG of the late ’60s has never left my mind since then.
Update (as of Aug, 14th 2010)
Justin (Justin Sandercoe, a GREAT Musician, Teacher, Promoter and Inspiring Gentleman – you can find him here) has informed me that he has resolved his dispute about his AC/DC videos. The dispute apparently was between J Albert – who caused me to go down with the third warning on my main account – and Sony. But maybe, not exactly like so. I really don’t understand these matters – yet – and I should refrain from commenting. Anyway, news is that my video “Getting the AC/DC tone” was resumed on his channel. Good news.
Justin took the time to write me a splendid email, where he forwards me his comments about me to J Albert productions. I didn’t think I deserved that much attention. God – if he exists – Bless You, Justin.
EDIT: NEWS (as of Aug 13th, 2010): Justin Sandercoe has been “attacked” by copyright owners on his AC/DC videos on YouTube, too. Interesting thing is, Justin had been ASKED by AC/DC to do that! He did that in collaboration with Sony.
So what hit me, is hitting everyone. My intuition is that there is a war between recording labels and publishers. It’s not on “us” mere players, it’s between them. It could be a rational explanation. I expect BIG things coming out of this.
So, many of you have been wondering, what is going to be on solodallas.com, what’s its direction, what…?
Here a few quick answers to update you:
– After the shutdown of my main YouTUbe account a few days ago, I have created another YouTube page here
Nice to see what some people are saying about me.
By the way, Thank You, Tim!
