Adrian's drill trick couldn't possilbly be as cool as Paul Gilbert
attaching a bunch of picks to a drill bit and using it to play
really-fast-wheedily-shredder crap. Now that was funny! Great crowd
pleaser. He even got a Makita endorsement for that one. He quit doing it
when he got his hair tangled in the drill during a show. Something to think
about before bringing the power tools out......
