when i sat down at the film fest i turned to my mate and said" that guy looks the spitting image of Matt Segal but i know its not him of course"!!! they were all swigging out of a giant bottle of johnny walker red label, i know what im bringing with me to drink to keep my energy levels and braveness at maximum next time i hit the crags..the stuff of champions!!!! WHISKEY!!! i should have known years ago...i always felt super tough and invincable when ever i went to pubs loaded on whiskey!
I met diamond David Lee-Roth at Araps once. Noticing that he climbed with knee pads, I asked him why. He said he needed his knees to earn his living. I resisted the temptation to ask what he did for a living.
There were all these posers walking aroud saying "Have you see David" or "Is David around?" like he was their best mate.
Yah, Steve Vai, total mutant. Arguably the most technically virtuosic guitarist to ever have lived...
On 'Just like Paradise', the solo was recorded in the studio with a 450ms digital echo (delay) effect, so every note he plays gets echo'ed 450ms later. For playing the tune live, he would play the first line (on the Heart guitar) with his left hand, and then the 450ms echo line with his right. You can see a snippet of this amazing B.S. at 3:21. Which is in the realms of freakishly hard in terms of musicianship and guitar playing...!! : )
If we're going off topic, Mrs Gribble chatted to Eric Bana while walking his dog in the local park. She told me this immediately afterwards, breathless with excitement on her way to a hastily arranged appointment at the hairdressers.

Does fame by association count before the fame is realised? Heh, heh, heh.
