    ... and there it is. The first slam at a group of hard working people who are just like the rest of us. They go to work each day and do their best to serve the customers. We should be better than this. Like it or not, we're all small puppets in someone else's sideshow. IMHO we should try to remember that and keep it civil.

    Our band was becoming popular back when the earth was cooling.....we sent a tape to Decca Records in NY....tape .returned with a comment that stated "seeing you are not members of the American Musicians Union, we have not listened to your tape...good luck" So we sent the tape to Liberty Records in California.... We got a reply back that they would like our band to come to California and hear us play. They would give us free studio time but ALL other expenses were up to us.... None of us had much money so expenses were going to be the big issue but...........that telegram arrived about a week before we all graduated from High School and we .had all made plans to go in other directions seeing we did not expect to hear from Liberty. The band split except the lead singer and he ventured into the US and started a group called "Steve and the Windmen"....which fizzled out after about a year. Steve pressed on and at our 50 year High School Grad Reunion we found out that Steve had ended up as a musical cast member in a kids TV show. I carried that "Liberty Records" telegram around until it turned into confetti about 5 years later..... And yeh, I was the drummer...thanks for all the above posted "accolades".....

    A teenager gets a bass guitar and a month of lessons for his birthday After he comes home from his first lesson, his mother asks: “What did you learn in your first lesson?” “I learned all the notes on the E string!” The next week he comes home and mom asks: “What did you learn this week?” “I learned all the notes on the A string!”> After the third week the son returns home rather late and his mother asks again: “What did you learn this week?” “I couldn’t make it, I had a gig”

    It's a leasing thing, for the lessor to utilize export financing the plane has to have been exported.

    Caller - Is this the Navy? I want to report a jet making a huge penis in the sky! Navy - Was it a Russian jet ma’am? Caller - I don’t think so Navy - Well then, be bloody thankful!

    Transat has had its list of issues since their start-up but having flown with them several times over the last few years I can say with confidence there is nothing ‘so-so’ about their quality of service.

    How do you know a drummer is at the door? The knock speeds up.

    I don't think there's ever an announcement, change, direction, plan, or concept at WJ that's ever been well received or eventually partially received on this forum. The doom and gloom isn't unexpected.

    How do you get a guitarist to play quieter?....put sheet music in front of them! Why do guitarists prefer playing guitar to cycling?Because with a bike you only get two pedals.

    Perhaps a little older than vintage Fender Strats. The Boeing 377 Stratocruiser to HNL.

    Thread title adjusted to avoid further disappointment. For Kip “What do you call a guy/gal who hangs around with musicians?” The drummer.

    Very misleading and disappointing thread title .................. I thought that perhaps Boeing was venturing into an area of knowledge that I was very familiar with....

    Quite a bit of "green" to purchase... Fender Boeing Jet Green Stratocaster Guitar Item No. "667066010600" no reviews $4,500.00 Product Details In 1954, the Boeing 707 jetliner made its first flight, revolutionizing commercial air travel. The same year, the Fender Stratocaster solid-body guitar was introduced and quickly became the preferred instrument for musicians around the world. Boeing and Fender have joined forces to create a limited-edition series of guitars honoring their iconic achievements. The Boeing Jet Green Stratocaster is a contemporary-style guitar with an alder body and green satin finish. The pick guard, derived from materials used in the fuselage of a 747 jumbo jet, has a protective green zinc chromate finish. Because this authentic material is distressed from use, no two guitars look exactly the same. This fine instrument features a natural maple ’60s oval C neck, locking tuners, and a modern tremolo bridge for a sleek look and incredible sound. The guitar comes with a deluxe hard-shell case, strap, and certificate of authenticity. Made in USA. WARNING: This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm.

    The biggest laughs are generated by the journalists who are espousing that 'this could mean cheaper ticket prices for consumers'.
