Great to see you - and your post made me think. I am struggling to get myself going again as a 48 year old serial returner and it was quite inspirational! Welcome to GN, a great forum, have met some great people (both in reality and online) on here.

Darth, we have GOT to jam soon.....right? :-) :) :) Vic I think that could happen, Vic..... Just had the old GS out of its case and plugged into the little blackstar. They still make a great noise together....though it was more noise than music, tried a bit of foo fighters (everlong/best of you), G...
