To play a guitar of this pedigree, you must be accompanied by a no less than a 12-year old Scotch. Maybe even a 15-year old Glenfiddich. Sure, you can make a fantastic whiskey cocktail (or in my case, a shot of Fireball mixed with Rum Chata), but more refined aficionados want to enjoy the smokey flavor unadorned — except perhaps with ice.

There are three things you cannot recover in this life: The word after it's said, the moment after it's missed and time after it's gone.
There is a reason we have passion in this life: If forgotten, you've already lost yourself so please do me a favor: Remind yourself on who you are. Expect the best and then you shall have it. Just sayin' people..."
