Hey Vancouver folks: Next maQLu show is May 24 at the Marine Pub in Burnaby. I’m opening for We Found a Lovebird and The Furniture, and will be doing a quick and dirty stripped down set, 4 or 5 songs with just me, my guitar, and probably a drum machine if it behaves itself and […]
Fetched my mail this afternoon and I had a large sorta flat square parcel. I knew exactly what it was, a recent eBay purchase of an LP of an interview with Guns N Roses from back in the day, put out by BaktaBak, which I think did a lot of these sorts of releases. I’m […]
Men at Work: “High Wire”: Woke up with this one in my head once or twice this week. Not sure if I’ve ever seen the video before, must have at some point. Guns n Roses: “Mama Kin”: Live at the Ritz in 1988. Latest song I’m working on in my guitar lessons. Danko […]
No info on where and when this show took place, but the poster thinks it may have been at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark, 1988-ish.

Woke up Easter Sunday from a dream where I was on a tour of a shotgun range out in the woods somewhere and wondered why the place was overrun with rabbits. “Do you not do sporting clays here?” I asked. [Sporting clays is basically trap shooting meets golf, at certain stations they have “rabbits” which […]
Been a couple weeks since my last tattoo removal update. Things happen slowly, after all, but in the last couple days I’ve noticed some new gaps in the outlines. Oldest tattoo: More erosion and small gaps in the outline. Smaller lines disappearing (eg., behind the knee on the left). And lots of peeling on the […]
Backstage footage and interview 1988. Talking about when he died on stage, pretty scary stuff.
Got the call yesterday that my ES-135 (Jeff) was now all better and ready for pickup from Rufus Guitar Shop, couldn’t get there yesterday so I popped by there today to get it. New frets are installed, and now it’s much easier to play, basically as easy on the action now as Keith or my […]
Live at the Electric Ballroom in 1990. Sadly, only audio with still pictures, but it’s better than nothing. Kill City Dragons was the band Billy G. Bang was in before Shooting Gallery, one of Andy McCoy’s post-Hanoi Rocks projects. Their album Shooting Gallery remains one of my all-time favorites, probably top 10 or even top […]

Tax day in Yankeeland. My condolences, guys. Try to remember today’s pain next time you go in to vote, eh? Anyway, here’s a few of the songs that have been banging around my brain and my iPod this week… Ramones: “I Wanna Be Sedated”: New York Dolls: “Bad Girl”: Johnny Thunders with the big […]
I usually don’t post on politics as such, but in my blogskimming today I came across this: What a real rape culture looks like Absolutely spot on. I will say that I think it was hit and miss in Poland and Ukraine. Certainly there are many documented cases of mass rape in Poland. At the […]
Aftershow interview from 1987.
