    Well, it seems like I've fallen into a den of musicians! How cool is that?!? Beer-drinkin', smoked-meat eatin', guitar-strummin' good ol' boys (and gals!; the post office website says my Tatonka Dust and koozies were delivered yesterday; better check my mail box!). Yee howdy!

    One quick anecdote.

    I was 4 years old when I ran away from home for the first time. I was the oldest of 5, and had had enough. I was always taking off, not running away so much, just looking for something new, not boring. Fast forward 7 years. I was living in St. Louis in the early 60s, and used to bus down to Gaslight Square (before it went south), get a slice of pizza and a soda, and site on the benches outside of the clubs that had live music. I really fell in love with the Mississippi Delta blues. Fast forward 4 years. Christmas time, 1965. I was living in Wisconsin at the time, and had just gotten turned on to Chicago blues (Buddy Guy was 17-18 years old a time). We went to Chicago for the holidays. I'd heard of Old Town (Wells St. south of Division) and seen some clips of the area on the Chicago PBS station, so I snuck out again and trained downtown. I walked up and down the street a bit, checking out the different clubs. There was one that a lot of peeps were going into. I couldn't hear much from the street, so I wormed my way into a group going up the stairs to the second floor club. I was 5'10" when I was 12 (still the same height; don't ask). I didn't even get carded. I went and sat in the back of the room and listened to some music unlike anything I'd ever heard before, being played by musicians I'd never heard of. Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Ron Carter, Anthony Williams. Have you guessed the name of the club yet? Yup, the Plugged Nickel. What an introduction to jazz! That was the night I fell in love with the bass. Herbie was fun to watch (still playing acoustic piano at the time), but Ron Carter blew me away. All I'd ever experienced, bass-wise, was orchestral.

    Back on topic: It just started raining, so I ran out to the mailbox and, voila, there was my Tatonka Dust kit (bag, bottle and 2 koozies). Woot! I was going to do a pork tenderloin for this weekend's contest, but now I'm going to have to do beef.

    So there's a musician under those BBQr's dreads, BP? Cool! Love to meet you sometime.

    Now back to the thread...
    Impressive! I had a 6' Kawai baby grand at home, but my preference was a Yamaha Concert Grand that I played at school. I always preferred the sound and the feel of the Yamaha keyboard to the Steinway I had access to. I never had a chance to play a Bosendorfer (back when I was still playing; now I just listen). Can't even imagine what one of those would cost now. You're a lucky guy.
