  1. I guess I have to talk about EVH….

    This is a edited message that I responded to on our forum about the old 5150 guitar strings.

    It is an example of you never know when you take a little creative initiative where it can take you.

    5150 strings are what put EVH and I together….

    For years the legend was that he only used Fender strings that had been boiled. We had dealings with Rudy Leiren EVH’s high school buddy/longtime tech on other stuff but they kind of kept a lot of the mystery of ...

  5. I've been everywhere, Man.....

    Ok, where was I? Tokyo, Fort Worth, San Luis Obispo and back to the California Desert. Oh, Yeah history...

    The great thing about those times is that the lines were blurred. I was helping Leo, beta-testing amps for Tommy, getting them artists. I remember Tommy askng my Dad if he could hire me.
