    He's one of those people who prove beyond a doubt that you can have some of the finest gear on the planet and still not be able to play one note that anybody wants to hear. I don't know where he got his money but I doubt it was from royalties on his music.

    LOL if you look him up he's had Grammy nominations etc.,
    His father was the industrialist Henry J Kaiser : Henry John Kaiser was an American industrialist who became known as the father of modern American shipbuilding. He established the Kaiser Shipyards, which built Liberty ships during World War II, after which he formed Kaiser Aluminum and Kaiser Steel.

    Yeah somewhat of a genius oddball.

    There's a video out there... Kaiser and Dumbledore from Dumble.

    Watched it a few times, showed it to fellow musicians.

    Squirrels suffer from restless tail syndrome
    They hide nuts then forget where they put them
    They’re risk-takers. Ever see a squirrel leap from one spindly branch that shouldn’t be able to hold it to another spindly branch that it shouldn’t be able to reach? Clearly, squirrels like to go out on a limb.
    They’re creative and innovative. When none of the other squirrels were able to figure it out, the Glaucomys sabrinus (Northern flying squirrel) came through. Do they have feathers? No. Do they have wings? No. But present this seemingly impossible conundrum to the intrepid flying squirrel and they’ll find a work-a-round.
    They love to chatter
    They lack social skills. You’ve seen that squirrel that helps itself to the peanuts set out for the birds? You know: the one that does a daring Tarzan-swing from a nearby tree limb, landing right in the middle of the feast and disrupting the entire occasion. In spite of the name bird feeder (which should be a dead giveaway, right?) it’s clueless.They can have criminal tendencies. Let’s revisit that squirrel that helps itself to the peanuts set out for the bluejays. It might know perfectly well they were meant for someone else but have no compunction about stealing them.
    Have you ever seen a squirrel that was not in constant motion? Me neither.

    Oddball I'll buy. Genius I won't. Even Robert Benson thinks Kaiser should stop pretending to be a guitar player.

    It really IS that bad.

    As for Grammy nominations, well, anybody can be nominated. Actually getting the award is a totally different story.

    Henry's problem is that with him apparently having access to virtually limitless money, as far as buying musical gear is concerned, he got to do exactly what he wanted and nobody around him would dare to annoy him and get off his "friends I give money and cool stuff to" list by telling him, "Henry, you suck! Try this instead!". Nobody has apparently dared to correct him or tell him that they don't like his....."music"...and I use the term very loosely.

    Too much money can be bad for people because it creates barriers. Barriers to people correcting the errors of the rich person.

    He can just BUY studio time in any studio. He can BUY access where other people have to earn it with skill and talent.
