    RIP Dusty Hill

    I saw them in Zurich, Switzerland in a small venue right on this tour, when nobody over here really knew them. At the beginning of the show the stage was absolutely dark. Then there was this power chord that could have shook the foundations of this planet. The lights went on and there stood the...

    1957 Gibson Les Paul Goldtop ? serial 7-2595 ? Real or Fake ?

    Looks like it's troll time again. Your English is kind of questionable. Mine is too, but I have an excuse, I'm Swiss. Where are you from? One post? Maybe you could show us some other pics of "your" guitar? I don't think that will happen...
