Me and my partner were just playing a gig in a semi fancy bar/restaurant and the governor of New Mexico came in and signed my upright bass while he was having dinner. He might be presidential material, I don't know.. Anyway I think I'll set the bass aside until after the elections. Can you imagine, a presidents signature on a bass; plus he said he liked our funky blues. Politics aside he's got good taste in music. Gov. Bill Richardson of the great state of New Mexico. You should have seen the security; it's a wonder they even let see him to sign my URB.

Whoa! is right. That's pretty cool, man. I wish our governor would get his head out of his @$$ long enough to do something like that...but I won't go into details.

That's a cool thing,oleman! I saw a Charlie Daniels video of a remake of "Long Haired Country Boy" last nite,with a "who's who" of guest musicians,and they were scratchin' their autographs on the back of each others' guitars with a pocket knife. I wonder if yer Governor is a musician.

I've skimmed through several bios without seeing any mention of him playing music. He was a baseball player, though.

I don't want anybody signing my instruments.

I wish I could just walk into bars and start signing instruments left and right. That's REAL power right there.

"I don't want anybody signing my instruments. "



Me either. He can sign me a check or a greenback.

I don't know how I'd feel about letting someone sign one of my guitars most of the guys that I'd probably want to sign are already gone. As for our Governor of Kentucky if he's convicted on the deal their accusing him of old Ernie can sure press me a signed license plate if he wants to.

Of course convicted or not he'll never spend a day in jail.

Awesome, Oleman! Sounds like you had some fun! Maybe your duo will be invited to play at the presidential inauguration and future partays.

And don't forget Ricochet said he wouldn't want anyone to sign his instruments but he did not say his guitars. Maybe you don't know Rico 8)

Man, things have really changed around here...I can't believe I just witnessed Rico passing up an opportunity for a Johnson joke....

Everytime you talk about Christine I think about the Stephen King movie about the car of the same name. It kinda freaks me out.
