Well, here we are. Got less than 6 days left. You guys have more than shown your love, support, and belief in me. I will be forever grateful.
Now it's my turn! I'm on my way to Sound Source (a local music/gear/repair/rental store here in town) to sell some gear. By the way, the guys at Sound Source contributed to this Kickstarter, so a HUGE shout out to them. If you're a musician and live in town you probably already know them. But if you don't, you need to. They're on Norris Drive by Cobbs Hill.
Got a couple good guitars, a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp and a crazy old Yahama Organ I got from my brother years ago. Along with a few other various and assorted... Should help the cause a bit...
My other big idea to rally any troops who haven't contributed yet is to offer as an incentive, to anyone who gives $50 0r more, to enter a raffle to win Eartha, my first electric guitar. She's an old Fender Stratocaster Squire. She was an entry level job I bought at Sam Ash in NYC. I had her when I started my first band, an all-girl outfit which I named Boy Oh Boy. Best part of the story is that I got kicked out of the band. True story. I was a bit of a f--k up then. ;-P
Eartha and I played together for years with the Clams. I'll miss the ol' gal, but this is her purpose now. Hand-painted by yours truly. (My coon hound, Beanie, does not come with the guitar, as much as I would have wanted someone to take her last night during the thunderstorm.) Not really. ;-}
This record is going to be made. By all of us. Can you feel it? Let me hear you say Yeah!
