Harry,

I couldn't attach these photos to a private message, but I wanted to share... It's a work in progress. I live in a small town in Alaska, so once I get to a store that sells frames, I'll get whats up framed and the rest of my collection framed and hung including more photo's of you and shotgun messiah poster etc. But, till then this is getting more and more inspiring.

Thanks again...

Ryan T.

Ryan,

Looks awesome! Nice guitars!

:yah

Thanks..It's still a work in progress. I am missing two guitars in this pic. I have a LP at my work. (I work up on the North Slope (oil field) of Alaska and I have my own "room" when I'm there for 2-6 weeks at a time, so I keep one at work, gotta have something to do w/ my down time. ha.) and I have an Ibanez acoustic that isn't shown as well. That rack holds nine. My wife asked why did you get a rack that holds 9 guitars when you only have 6 guitars.. I said.. so I can get 3 more.. she sighed and walked away.. hahaha.. :)

Yes indeed Harry, please do a YouTube thing!!!

Maybe something similar to what I do, here is my latest vid:


*sneakily asking for a like/subscribe so you will never miss any future takes on your solos from me :p *

When I started this thread I didn't know that so many people were influenced by you and hold you in such a high regard - it's so great to see!

Hey Gents!

so .... while doing some (much needed) Spring Cleaning, I came across a little SM gem in the form of a near-mint condition Tour Poster for the Second Coming album. :wow A girlfriend from a billion years ago used to work for Relativity Records. She gave this to me right before the album came out, and I promptly stored it away for safe keeping ... only to "find" it again in 2018 :hee

I'd love to bequeath this to a "fan" here on the official HKC Thread. If interested in ownership, shoot me a PM here on the forum. I'll take inquiries from interested parties through the First of May (Bee Gees nod there!) and select someone at random.

cheers!!!!

Hi Harry Cody!

I guess I can just follow everyone else here. I’m a big fan from Sweden! But maybe take this in English so everyone can follow. I got introduced to Shotgun Messiah for just about a year ago, which is a shame if you live in Lidköping, grew up in Götene and studied in Skövde. Do you remember these places? :-D

Anyway, me and an older friend were on a roadtrip to Stockholm for a bike fair, he’s a clay modeler and I’m a designer/engineer. We have common interests in both bikes and music so we talked and listened a lot and he asked me if I knew about Shotgun Messiah. I said that I’ve never heard about it. He showed me a few songs and I was blown away. The whole trip home was just your music and several beers for me as I was going directly to a party, just an unforgettable moment. I continued to listen and you’re basically the soundtrack of my 2017. Right before a relationship ended for me but you made me forget it completely, eat your heart out bitch, right? ;-) I started to go to the gym and continued with my big passion which is drawing.

So I’m working on a drawing of you right now. I attach a picture of the work in progress and will show it when it’s finished: https://preview.ibb.co/ij8jgc/skanna0002_2.jpg

You can see more of my drawings here: https://landindesign.deviantart.com/gallery/

Click on the album portraits if you want to see which other music icons that have inspired me. I hope you think that you’re in great company ;-) Unfortunately I’m not good at playing guitar, but my little brother is. Maybe I should give it a try or two. Like everyone else says, great to hear from you and very kind to interact with your fans like this!

All the best!
Daniel

Hi Daniel!

I looked at your art... man, you’ve got skills! The portraits are very vivid, and the vehicles look kick-ass!

Of course I remember Lidköping, Götene and (naturally) Skövde - I’ve either been up to no good or hung over in each of those places, and I’m not even a hardcore partier by Swedish standards.

I’m glad that your buddy played you the SM stuff, and that you enjoyed it! Say hi from me!

Thank you so much for the comment! Up to no good or hangover is what you should be in those places I guess ;-) I've also studied in Gothenburg and we will see what the future holds for me. Your post that said "we don't get what we deserve - we get what we get" really got me.

Unfortunately I'm not finshed yet. I only have the most important part left to do, and some fine tuning. I did this drawing with a hard lead in the pencil but I think it will be cool anyway: https://preview.ibb.co/fRdMZH/skanna0009_copy.jpg

Amazingly, no takers on this vintage SM tour poster. Oh well ... I'll leave this here in case anyone would like it for their collection?? I'm moving, and downsizing

Btw, I don't now how it works but it would be really nice to have your albums on Spotify. Of course I got hold of all the albums and you also have Youtube, but I think that it would be nice to have the albums on Spotify so you easily can crank it up when partying with your friends :dude:

I am SO glad Sirius radio still plays your songs Harry. I just heard Heartbreak Blvd about an hour ago. I actually had to do a quick web search to see what you've been doing and if there's any new music around. I still own SM's 1st 3 CD's. Your playing would make me either want to practice or quit! Great tone, feel and lots of cool crazy licks. Anyway, glad this thread popped up in my search. You truly are an awesome player and an awesome human!

Hello Mr. Cody, long time no seen :eek:la

It´s Martin from Tidaholm here, if you remember me!?
Example - I drove Tim a few times to your rehearsal in the basement in Skövde back in the -80!
And one time I even fall asleep (because the good booze the day before) :peace2 :snore :lol

Now...

Do you have any contact with Tim anymore?
I´ve tried to reach him in FB, but he never answered any PM from me, and now I don´t have FB anymore!

Exactly what are you doing today?
Because it´s very hard to find anything with you...I manage to hear some sort of Japanese manga cartoon action that you played guitar on...

Is it impossible for you to record a soloalbum (only instrumental, like...Steve Vai, Jason Becker, Vinnie Moore etc) ?
Because, I know there are thousands like me that would like you to do an instrumental soloalbum and hear your brilliant guitarpicking and fun way to play again!!
C´mon...do it...do IT...DO IT :hee

And now some Swedish talk...

Jag är rätt kass på engelska, så är det några felskrivningar så skit i det :D
Kul att se att du finns iallafall, och jag hoppas du har det kanon i USA!!

Med det sagt, ha det bra så länge, så kanske jag skriver igen om du svarar, vore ju kul såklart!
Skåååål på dig :pt

/Martin

PS. Du kan ju fixa en egen kanal på Youtube och visa dina licks, typ en gång i veckan eller nåt!
Bara ett tips asså...jag menar, en kille som "Pewdiepie" gjorde ju så, nu är han stenrik och bor i USA..
Så åtminstone kolla upp det här!!
Du kan ju läsa om honom här, och hur det har gått till: https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pewdiepie

Hey Harry! First off sorry, I know this is a Second Coming thread. But my question is about VNB. I was just wondering if you knew of any place here on the web where you can find anything live from VNB? Maybe a bootleg concert? Or even just a live song or two? I asked Bill Bruce this question several years ago. He said he was able to find a bootleg show from Washington DC on eBay that he bought himself. And he said he knew Tim had a full show from Minneapolis. But that was just all he knew about. And I was just wondering if you knew of possibly anymore or a way to find more... Or if more even exists lol.
