    Re: The Big Al Good Mojo thread

    I'm in hell. I have even less use of my left arm than I did in that goofy video which was the last time I played with an capacity. It is embarrassing and far from representative of my ability. My humerus was in two seperate pieces then and the implanted rod was the only thing holding it together. As bad as it is I'd give anything to even have that limited ability back.

    Now the bone is gone after the cancer ate it up. Al metal from shoulder to elbow. Next step is amputation of the whole arm.
    The older I get, the better I was.

    You know, Scott, I've always found beauty in every Les Paul. I just don't find I need a particular flame type or specific hue or color to catch my eye. I have often wondered why some seem so repulsed by dumb ass hang ups about color, figure, era or any other anal fixation that prevents one from simply enjoying a beautiful guitar.

    That said, some really catch my eye. This one does. WHAT A BEAUTY!!!! You always seem to post guitars that grab my attention. Excellent photography, brother.

    Hi Al, I hope things get better for you, hang in there!

    You gave me a feel good boost when you talked about how good
    the 96 studio's are.

    It validated my opinion of this great playing and sounding
    Gibson Les Paul.

    Thanks Big Al

I had done a whole rap about tuning to a double G, grabbin' a slide and becomin' Delta Albert. It was a GOOF! The only reason Steve pulled out his phone was because he felt I was relaxed and havin' fun, instead of struggling so hard with my impared playing, (thank you morphine).

    I posted this goof because I wanted to show that you don't need Rockstar chops. That having fun and playing with a pal is the goodthing. FUN! It should be FUN!! Don't ever forget the joy and enjoyment of playin' music with others. My left humerus was in two seperate pieces and the thin rod that had just been implanted was the only thing holding my arm together, unknowingly at that time.

    After back to back surgeries a year apart, I no longer have that bone. From the elbow up all the way it is metal. I can barely use my left arm and the pain is , ..... almost more than I can bear. The metal implant has cut thru my skin causing an abcess and the Docs wanted to amputate. I was put on heavy antibiotics and advised that I'd lose my arm.

    I stood up, put my right hand over the big round part of the implant above the exiting part and pushed with all my might, bellowing like a bear in heat and pushed the implant back into my use to be shoulder, squirtin' tears like a baby.

    The Docs lost their friggin' minds, standing up and shouting at me all at once. I told them to wrap it up as tight as they could and if the wound didn't heal, I'd super glue a flippin' bicycle tire patch over the metal part that cut thru my skin. This did not go over well. The abcess heal, as did the wound. It is ugly and the pain is epic. But I still have an arm. Before every treatment I have to show them my shoulder to prove I haven't glued on a patch.

    My chemo was changed to a more aggressive infusion type, every two weeks, it is not nice. I'm failing, I can feel it. I won't go easy and I fight it as best I can. I can barely play now but I still try, .... 'cause even though I can't do it well and it hurts a lot, I can do it and it makes me happy.

    Happy, joy. The pleasure of guitar playing has been a constant source of joy, solice, wonder and is a big part of my very being. 6 strings to bind my soul. They are all beautiful to me, they allow such wonderful opportunity to wordlessly commune. Sometimes it seems forgotten.

    I'll wager a considerable sum that it's also crossed your mind on more than one occasion to put one there, just for the sheer bloody hell of seeing their faces.

    You weren't born mate, you were quarried.
