The early days of Music Man

by Big Poppa on 02-18-2014 at 07:09 AM
We are reintroducing Music Man amps with my good friend Marco of Mark Bass and I was asked to write a short paragraph....hahahaha

Sitting down to write this re-introduction of Music Man Amps brings back memories….all good.

Music Man was a company that was formed by Leo Fender, Tommy Walker, and Forrest White. You all know Mr. Fender…but behind the scenes there was a very talented
group of men and women that helped make the old Fender Musical Instrument company

Facebook...My rant. Sorry no Guitar content...but I felt compelled

by Big Poppa on 06-02-2012 at 09:20 AM
I have been sort of majorly focused on Facebook for awhile. *I still haven't seen the movie but I think that I have been watching in the last week the making of the sequel in real time …Social Network 2…this time starring Michael Douglas (Wall Street 3)….It could be called The Elephant in the Room…or the Emperor Has No Clothes……

Getting immersed in the e-commerce world with Big Poppa Smokers has been a blast. *One of the things that you are told to do is chase the almighty 'Like'

Ernie Ball...We made it 50 years. 50th Anniversary Blog

by Big Poppa on 01-03-2012 at 07:57 AM
50...it isn't just some number. It is really one that you have to digest, celebrate, reflect, and truly appreciate. Especially if you were there for all of them like I have.

The companies that have made it 50 years and that are still relevant are very few and I am deeply honored to have Ernie Ball join that club. It means validity of my fathers passion, creativity, and drive. It is a chance to soak in the work that I have dedicated my life to...it is watching my sons take it from

So You Want To Be A Rock and Roll Star........

by Big Poppa on 10-12-2010 at 07:03 AM
This is for you Craig....
If dreams were cognizant of reality I would be toast. Why? Up to now the perception of the Rock and Roll star for young kids was Hot Chicks, Limos, Touring, Recording. The finest of everything and boatloads of money. The perception created the dream of being a rock star drove the kids to play the guitar and emulate their fav's. Like a kid wanting to be Tiger Woods in golf.....arrrghh. Barry Bonds in baseball...Now the biggest selling Rockstar is an energy drink.

Blame the Auto-Dialer

by Big Poppa on 03-03-2010 at 07:38 AM
Where did we forget to remember things? I trace it back to the auto dialer...you basically had to remember peoples phone number. I resisted for a long time but put the stuff in my cell phone and let that part of my brain become dormant......that part of my brain sits on the couch with a bag of Oreo's. Maybe it was the calculator? Yeah...thats it I used to be able to ad and multiply...OK I still can do margins. The math part is sitting on the same couch with a bag of Cheetos.
