1 Danman 2 weeks ago Shuggie and I have been in constant communication about all things guitars and life in general since he contacted me through the GDP in 2008. We both repair, fix up and build guitars and we have been giving each other all kinds of advice ever since. Shuggie knows infinitely more about amps and electronics than I do so I learn a lot about that from him too. But mostly he also is just a very cool and fun person to talk to and very giving and open about his knowledge. So we have considered each other good friends for a long time. We Facetimed twice but never actually met…. until this Thursday when Shuggie came to Amsterdam for a few days with his lovely wife Ruby and we could spend some time together. It’s funny, he was exactly the same as I thought he would be. Needless to say we had a great time together, mostly boring our better halves with lots of guitar talk...... ; ) We said we would take a good picture posing with guitars to post here but we forgot and ended up taking a very quick selfie just before they got in the cab back to the hotel…..
