Re: Down the toliet with being "Politically Correct"
I totally agree. The world is a bass-ackwards place...
Somehow, I think this whole "I don't want to offend anybody" attitude carries onto guitar playing. No one (besides the select few whom we idolize around here - Gilbert, Lane, ect) wants to play anything remotely loud or flashy anymore. I think that contributes to the fact that we don't see as many people playing through a wall of Marshall stacks, etc. Everyone is scared of "offending" one another. Granted, I don't ALWAYs want to see balls to the wall hard rock, but quite frankly, I'm getting sick of all these "tone" people who insist playing with no effects or distortion through a tiny little combo about 6" x 6" big...
"Ooooh, the tone, oooh the tone, oooooh the tone, he plays with so much feel, ooooh the tone...the tone....he only uses Strats through little combos, so his tone must be good, oooh the tone..."
^That's what it's like, for the most part, here in Memphis. I don't know about the rest of you, but it gets damn annoying.
