Re:N.A.M.M show

NAMM is not open the public, actually. (Frankfurt musik messe is on two
days, and boy does it suck.) You have to "work" for a company in the music
industry that belongs to NAMM (national association of music merchants). A
lot of people seem to miraculously find employment in the music industry in
late january and appear at the show. Its sort of a see and be seen deal for
some - there's usually lots of hair spray, spandex, silicone, and has-been
rock stars walking about. (there must some neighborhood in LA that refuses
to leave the 80's.) For the serious gearhead, NAMM is a giant toy store
where you get to try all the toys before the other kids. Oh, and some poor
souls actually have to work during all that noise and insanity.....
