    Indeed.
    Mull is actually a decent guitarist, it was a major part of his standup act for a long while. He did have at least one album that I liked, that a friend of mine had, with songs like "The Only Thing I Got that's Black is the Blues.", "Licks off of Records" (where he explains how he learned guitar) and "Baby Bottle Blues", where he played a Delta Blues slide tune by using a baby bottle on a ukulele.

    Yes



    Cannot wait I can only hope that the note trackers can transcribe the keyboard part for "Just What I Needed" into a guitar part like what was done for the Whos' Baba O'reiley!

    Since there were so many AC/DC fans disappointed in this thread, I think this gif is appropriate.



    AC/DC hopes is the guy while the correct answer of The Cars being the band next week is the car itself.
