Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, January 25, 2007



HUGE COUCH 50TH BIRTHDAY
TO BROTHER RICH

(He of Favorite Office TimeWaster Link)
He will probably kill me for this - but go leave him a little H.B. on his site and see the funny stuff there.





Yesterday for our Mid-Week Musical Meme
we featured the music of LES PAUL

We could not think of a TT and were speaking
to a good friend when they mentioned,
based upon yesterday, we show 13 guitar players
who use LES PAUL GUITARS.

Brilliant idea !!!
(they tend to come up with many brilliant ideas actually)
, except it was almost 11:00pm
and it isn't that easy to find the guitarist with
their guitars...so
Today - 13 Gibson LES PAUL Guitars

And Three more songs from the man himself and Mary Ford
