Hey Howie...come over to this forum and join up....lotsa fans of yours here, and since I understand you own at least one PRS guitar( ;)), you'll fit right in.

Very cheap, easy dues here to join as well. Just send me your 1980 Golden Eagle, and I will make sure you get accepted. :D

Excellent news - congratulations to Ann, Nancy, Howard and all the members of Heart past and present.

I'm currently reading the Heart biography "Kicking and Dreaming" and just ordered the latest 2 CDs from Amazon the other day!

edit: and I still have this:

Its pretty amazing when you think about it that Howard......really, really, really is one of the main reasons our beloved PRS are where they are today. The last thing all his fans saw before he melted their faces off with riffs were bird inlays.



Take a bow, Howard! :star:

Excellent news for a wonderful person! Howie and I chatted for quite a while at Paul's house during one of the Experiences... Just the fact that I can type that sentence makes me happy as a clam!

When we introduced the Howard Leese Signature PS model, one dealer was not too happy about the "Fill on the top" and wanted to return the guitar to the factory for a refund. After I explained the dresser drawer story to him, everything was cool. :laugh:

Ya hear that, Howie?

Edit....D'uh...it doesn't bode well for my future dementia, that I exchanged posts with Howie back in June on this very forum.

I remember on BaM there was a guy from Australia who posted a rant about "The new Leese PS guitar that was in his local shop, but had a repair in it so why would anyone buy it that way???

Ha! I remember someone posting a photo of one (specifically on the plug) and calling out PRS on their Quality Control.

Priceless.

Dude, I know damn well you have his number on speed dial! Get to work, Ned. ;)

Kidding aside, he saw the thread last night. We just reset his password. I'm sure he's still celebrating. I would be!

I would, but I am pissed at him (:D)....he sent me information on his 1961 Les Paul (SG) with PAF's....got me all excited...and then told me it was part of his "permanant collection" and he wouldn't trade it. Sheeeesh. :(

Hey Howie, just to make sure you know... The "little man" I was referring to was Shawn's little boy playing Crazy On You on the piano. I wasn't calling you little man. I promise.

Heart is a great choice for the RnR HoF if you really think about what they did for music. Even though their sales numbers are spectacular (over 30 million) they have songs that are still on rotation on classic rock stations and played by bar bands every night. In fact, I have 2 or 3 to learn for a new band I'm joining. It is impossible to hear Barracuda's opening riff and not feel a sense of power and emotion come over you. And Crazy On You, musically, it's put together perfectly. The arrangement and the hook to that song is just freakin awesome. I could go on and on...

Long overdue, and a perfect selection.
Heart is rock n roll, they are what the soul, the spirit and the intent on rock n roll is all about.

Congrats to Howard and Heart.. The RnR HoF gained some credibility in my book with their selection. They are one of a handful of bands that made the RnR HoF possible.

I thought you were talking about me! Hahahaha
