Which is why I have relegated my once beloved GR-300 to the duty of 
K/L (knobs and lights) amusement for my sons. I'll tell ya--it's really 
*not* to sound like Fripp when you play that thingy! Also, way back in the 
daze of'84 I started running a mix of synth and dry guitar through a fuzz 
Then, along comes "Gone to Earth" and there's Mr. Bobby doing the same damn
thing. I was crushed--I really thought I'd found a new sound with the 
blue guy. 

BTW---Nice of you to de-lurk Mr. David Torp.
