Re: Country Loops / James Reynolds

hmm, nope, wasn't me..

during the winter NAMM show, a colleauge dragged me to the gibson-sponsored
extravaganza at the whiskey, where i had the distinct pleasure of watching
gov't mule open for zakk wylde.  now i consider myself to be a very
musically open-minded person, but the thought of opening for a band that
opened for zakk wylde quite frankly makes me want to swallow my own
tongue... graakmmph..
