1 shane kislack 1 year ago Hey, members. My name is Shane and I've been a member since 1997 (the page got an overhaul and reset our sign up date in 2006?). My original name on the board was "metroshane".Here's what you need to know. I'm the original owner of a 1997 6120DE in the rare Ebony burst. Can't believe I'm about to be the original owner of a vintage instrument. From 1997 until about 2006 I was very active, but then kids came along and they'd never let me play guitar. Then I took a job for a year at Guitar Center and it made me hate guitar for awhile. So I stopped playing and coming here. But the kids are older and I'm starting to relearn how to play. Funny thing is, it's coming more natural to me now. I see it in a different way.Anyway, I'm what you'd call one of the old timers of this bunch. I'm excited to see who is still around and meet the newer people. (I come back every once in a while to see what's happening). I appreciate Tim having this site for us all these years.I live in Dallas, so I see Jim Heath (outside the Rev persona) a lot. My best friend is a prodigy of his. Another good friend plays drums for him now. But that doesn't mean I know a whole lot about his personal stuff, so don't ask. Here's a cool note, Jim is a monster player when he's Jim. 10x better than the Rev in my opinion. Here's a link to a video I recorded of him just being natural with my best friend. I'm a photographer for a living and have never had the inclination to be in a band or make it as a rockstar, just enjoy noodling around and jamming with people. But, the coolest part of my story is that I have at least 4-5 friends that I still keep in touch with, that I met here 20 years ago. Here's to making new friends.
