Tuck: You occasionally notice such bands. Often it turns out that FB just won't admit they're on FB. Or that they haven't admitted they're a band yet.

Such a cool, kick ass pic! Dig the dimed Stoke. Thanks Tim!

Awesome to have you here and this is one of the best threads.

I'm curious what the other two amps are in the corners that appear to be brown era tolex. I can't make it out and it could be the lighting.

I love the El Sonido in Oxblood, I went with Rough Blonde w/wheat. Man, do I like that Oxblood.

Amps always seem to be the neglected half of the equation. But I love them.

Peace to you, not on you

Left is a Fender Concert Amp. Right is a Fender Acoustasonic. The show today was off the hook. I'll let BTD do the review.

what? , my ears are still ringing.
So Eddie called me and guilted me into going.
Wink j/k

I am really glad that I went.
the Eliminators by themselves were on fire.
with Eddie was just amazing.

the sound was huge, and perfect.
like a glimpse back in time.

Things started off great. When we arrived, the parking Nazi would not let us in the lot to park in our reserved spots behind the club to unload. He did the talk to the hand bit on me while I was explaining who we were & why were were there. Bad start. Why this clown made such an issue over this is a mystery. Anyway, we got in & unloaded a ton of gear.

When the bands arrived, the stage are was still being lit for the movie (Sound Of The Surf) filming. Stage was very small. Somehow, the movie crew, Eddie & The Eliminators got their gear set up & made the whole thing work.

For those who were not there, you may have missed the performance of the decade. Eddie & The Eliminators rehearsed their asses off for this show and once on stage TORE IT UP! I shot video but it belongs to Sound of The Surf. Can't wait to see this movie!

Big Tiki Dude Jeff and Baja Marty "The One Man Party" were an unbelievable amount of help loading & unloading band gear, setting up & tearing down. Thanks a million guys.

Here are some still pics during set up.

Jeff(bigtikidude)

Eddie good to see that your playing again Love your music I seen your videos of your performances Great Very Happy

Bump!!!

Eddie doing his thing last winter for those who missed it.

I've been meaning to bump this thread for a while now, and kept getting side tracked. Anywho, it's not too late.

BUMP

Surely people still have fresh memories of the recent benefit concert for Eddie. ...and chances are you all see the Bulletin on the front page of this site that reminds you it's not too late to donate.

If you weren't able to attend the event (like me), or haven't donated already and need a reason to... well, I encourage you to read this threat from the start. Sure he's made some of the most memorable music of this genre, but a little time spent reading this thread and you get a sense of the dude. I for one am impressed with his humble kindness and diligence / respect to respond to each and every person and question. Whole new insight to who Eddie is as a person.

(( Hope recovery is continuing to go well, Eddie! ))

ps - I'm not savvy enough to sort out how to make a slick embedded donate button right here, so if you are so inclined to donate, go back to the home page and press the button!

Glad you bumped this. The donations stopped coming in shortly before the benefit show. But the account is still active and you can still donate to Eddie's cause through the button on the front page.

I recently dug up enough dinero to hire an engineer to prepare and mix sound and there are Eddie clips at the front of the queue. Very excited because Eddie's performance at SG101 convention 2008 was nothing short of spectacular and will be available on Youtube before long. Eddie really knocked it out of the park that day.

Is the donation account still active? I was going to buy some extra CDs to listen to during rehabilitation, but I'd rather donate the money to Eddie if I can. Thanks.

This is Noel. Reverb's at maximum an' I'm givin' 'er all she's got.
