    Any recommends for places to eat down that way?
    We were going to try to go to Yoshi's in Oakland sometime this summer for one of the concerts.
    I have a list for SFO but not Oakland....I can email that list to you.

    Well, that's really a matter of opinion and personal taste to be honest. There are no "best" guitar players... there's just great ones, that different people admire. It's all a matter of ones taste.

    In my opinion, having been a guitar player/composer for over 30 years, I'll honestly say that I think Slash is WAY over-rated and Steve Vai and Joe Satriani are up there at the top. Prince was good, yes, but somewhere lingering around the top 3/4ths of all the greats IMHO.

    But yeah, Slash and Vai are in two totally different dimensions lol. That's really like saying a Toyota Tercel and a Maserati are both great cars... IMO

    Prince now joins the greats in the great beyond. He's in good company with Jimi Hendrix, Randy Rhoads, and Dime-bag Darrell...
    I don't know, I like Slash's solos from AFD and Use your illusion albums, you can't say they're not great. But also, I have never seen him doing any solo exhibits like Vai and Satriani. So you might be right about that one.
    I've been hooked to Morello lately, you can't not to like his unconventional style.

    Smashed the tip of my left hand ring finger this morning, between a frozen solid pack of spare ribs and a stainless steel sink... It did not feel good I'll tell you that! It's still throbbing like hell... :(

    It's my fretboard hand too!! Probably not going to be playing any guitar tonight...

    That's pretty much the same outcome whenever a hammer and I meet each other.

    I was totally born at the wrong time. And the wrong place. I'd give half of my liver to be able to see them live.

    Look up David Gilmoure's tour.. It'd be pretty close to seeing Pink Floyd. He plays most of the songs that he had a part of on his tour.

    Roger Waters did an excellent reproduction of the original "The Wall" concert/album as well. That one you can find on YouTube.

    So I stopped into my local AT&T store yesterday to take a look at the SE for the GF.. Noticed the Microsoft display section was gone! I was like "where's the Microsoft stuff?" They guy says "oh, they quit paying for that spot"... "We do still have the 950 over there" pointing toward the wall where a mixture of android, Windows, and apple phones where.

    So I guess Microsoft is really giving up on their mobile push eh?

    They used to have a big section right in the middle of the store showcasing the Surface 3 and the 950/640 with the "Do great things" mantra and all... Not any more!

    Wow... I can't believe MSFT has done a complete 180 and removed the Skype integration from messaging after all that work of getting it integrated. After seeing their abandoned display at the AT&T store, I'm reminded why I jumped ship!

    Yeah I'm just taking it easy today... resting and letting my busted finger heal. I tried playing some guitar last night to see if the injury would get in the way. I can still play.. But it's painful as hell!
