Elliot Easton are you a Greg Lake fan? I know you have a lot of favorite guitarists so I wanted to hear what you thought of him.

One of my favorite ELP songs is Lucky Man. I really loved the sound Greg got out of his Gibson J200 on that song.
IMMUSICRULZ wrote on Wizard1183's profile.
Wizard1183 are you a John Entwistle fan?

John Entwistle is one of my favorite bass players. His bass playing on My Generation and Eminence Front kick ass.

When will Kirk hammet models come out? Preferably Greeny?

Yesterday a morning came, a smile upon your face
Caesar's palace, morning glory, silly human race,
On a sailing ship to nowhere, leaving any place,
If the summer change to winter, yours is no disgrace
