CACOPHONY. Hearing them play 'Go Off' made me go off and spend hours learning to shred, and here I am. Yippee

While I already played folk guitar this is what turned me onto electric guitar, too. I really liked Paul's Ibanez Iceman, too but I was drawn more to the Les Paul. With liking the Les Paul I listened to everything that had it which then was mostly classic rock but then I found I liked all the Stratocaster tones from those bands, so it was the strat for me. Way back then it was the poorly run post-Leo yet pre-Schultz Fender, and the company could not effectively put out decent strats at good prices so I went with Ibanez, the Blazer, thus my moniker. I did get those Les Pauls later on but they never really matched the quality of Ibanez.

Vai & Mike Keneally on the Fire Garden tour. That was a magical night.
