Hey Ben!
Great reading! First off, my hat's off to you for admitting you are a fan of the late Michael Jackson smile.gif . I actually really liked his stuff in the early 80's. I definitely remember the song "Beat It" (think it was around 81-82). I have heard that Eddie Van Halen actually just played on that song as a favor, never knowing what a hit it would be!

Yeah, I'll never mind talking about that. There was so much great music from him and the people who worked with him. Yeah, I also heard that too. I remember a radio interview with Eddie around '98 or '99 that I taped off of BBC Radio. He talked about recording that solo and he actually imitated Jackson with a funny voice and said that he came into the studio and said 'Wow, I really like all that high, fast stuff you do !' laugh.gif

It 's a great opportunity for you Ben, to get your name out there in front of people who don't know you wil nowl be exposed to you and your music.



First drink of the day is coffee? I would have thought a Lager would have been knocked back???

And i wouldn't have picked you for a man who takes a bath.... But, why can I picture you sitting in the bath, washing your hair?
