Podcast 10 We're back! (again) Jim was in England and Brexit happened. Will English amps like Marshall, Orange, Victory and Vox be less expensive? Squirrel! Led Zeppelin was found to be not guilty of stealing Spirit's song Tarus. Who cares what the court says, Jim and Matt have opinions. Not being lawyers does not deter them from talking about the descending chromatic fourth. Is this like Vanilla Ice and Queen's “Under Pressure”? The do-woop cord progression? Could Metallica sue for other bands writing a song in E minor? Where does influence end a ripping off begin? Matt retells his Eric Johnson story. Cellphones and concerts. Jag-offs. What is the issue here? Seriously. Jim says, “get over it, artists! Let people take some pictures” Matt agrees. Blah, blah, blah, politics, blah, blah. Back to music. It's always a good time to talk about Steve Vai. The 25th anniversary of “Passion and Warfare” along with a new release of “Modern Primitive” The two-for-one release is a great deal, maybe even a steal, on physical media but why the heck is it so expensive to get a high resolution download?! Jim gives a callout to Jason Becker and his re-issued “numbers” guitar. Matt going on some bizarre Facebook rant about how they are changing the meaning of friend.
