What a ridiculous pairing of statements. First, you slam the guy for what he likes, but then you say he can like what he wants to like.
Is this world according to Bammbamm?
True, everyone has their own preferences. What's wrong with that? Just because he likes something different than you, that doesn't mean he doesn't have taste. Another man's junk is a another man's treasure.

Personally, I feel like Latin does.
There are very few amps in the $1000+ category that get me excited. Most of the stuff on the market is just overpriced, re-hashed crap. Most people look at their favorite guitarist & think, "Oooo, they play Mesa & Marshalls, so I gotta buy one of those!" Well, in that case, the endorser did his job.
In the last 10 years, quality has risen tremendously in the "affordable" amp market. Nowadays, you don't have to give up your first born child to get a great sounding amp. I'm not going to buy an overpriced Mesa or Marshall, when I can get the SAME sound from a lower-priced head, modeling amp, or rack preamp. If I'm going to blow 5 times the cash, I better get 5 times the options! The sound is what matters, not the name that's on the box.
