    Long story.... but last Friday (5-27-11) I warmed up for REO Speedwagon.

    After our warm up set we hauled our gear to a local bar to play another show..... and REO Speedwagon showed up there later and played a couple songs on our equipment.

    So here's a clip of the great Dave Amato playing my R8 through my DSL 100 1960AV halfstack. You can see me on the side of the stage trying to take pics with my cell phone.

    And..... here's a couple of clips from earlier in the night at the concert when we were doing our warm up set. Also my R8 and DSL 100 1960AV:

    Do you now feel that you can somehow magically harness his playing ability because his sweat and epithelials have made contact with your "R8"???? Did you lick the neck afterward, maybe behind the stage in the dark?

    Did he also twiddle the knobs of your amp? Did his thigh rub against your cord??

    I would have told him to get his own fucking gear

    If they are heroes of yours or politely asking to which you were happy to oblige, awesome!

    Otherwise, I'm with shredless.

    I let people use my stuff if they ask nicely, musician to musician, never thru intermediaries or managers. I've used plenty of borrowed backlines.

    Nice R8, by the way!

    Wow some really shitty comments. Dave Amato is a super nice guy had the chance to meet him a few months ago. Dcooper its really cool that such a great guitarist played through your rig. Still sounded like Dave Amato though. Dave is truly underrated as a player. He is also a huge gear head and a big marshall advocate.

    Yeah he's a really cool guy and he loves Les Pauls and Marshalls. :)

    He had awesome tone at the concert earlier that night:

    Great post dcoop !
    Not that familiar with Speedwagon but they cant be all that bad if they use quality gear. R8 + DSL sounded absolutely teriffic.
    Your band was good as well !
