Hi Bill,   I don't have a picture in mind of the Snooper, but are you aware of the big
cluster they launched at XPRS last summer?  Had outboards in pods on the fin tips, J350's
they were too.  Mega something or other.  I think the idaho guys have pics on their
website........

Yep,  Both of them are Pink Floyd's kids.  Lynyrd of course is the unruly son.  Jethro is
his perky daughter.

Now THAT brings back memories.  My buddies sister had a set of Klipsh corner horns.  The
turntable was in another room.  My eyes were red because it was turned up so loud!  (at
least that's what I told my dad)

"Several species of small *** animals gathered together in a cave and

My roommate's dad owned "the top end stereo place" in southern wisc..
Klipsh Horns, and I think Kripsh Cornwalls?   Of course it was driven by
McIntosh amps!

...Wasn't Pink married to Duran Duran, Sr.?   Doesn't this make Jethro and Lynyrd, Duran, Jr.'s half-brothers?

Yep.  And they recorded the wildly popular yet short-lived song:

"Hungry Like Aqualung's Freebird"...

The studio version sucked, The "live" version was much better.

yes, I knew I didn't have the name quite right, thanks!

I loved so many songs on that album.  In Grandchester Meadows the
Acoustic Guitar capture on was great, you can hear the squeak of the
fingers sliding down the neck, especially with a pair of Koss headphones
in a heightened state of awareness

and todays kids think it all started with them!  Not even close!!!
