    Very interesting.

    Can't say I've ever heard of him (and I'm not a guitar player anyway), but it makes you think about little things.

    Perhaps you should post that at a music forum like

    Always had' em on the Les Paul since the day I read that Jimmy Page used 'em. There was a areally cool ad in a guitar magazine a couple years back. It had a picture of what I assume to be an authentic reciept from a music store in NYC (Sam Ash maybe???).

    It was made out to Jimi Hendrix, and among the items on the bill of sale were Ernie Ball guitar strings.

    Page and Hendrix? Good enough for this wanker to use on his guitars!

    RIP EB.
