I can do the shirt, I can't build me own plane and then crash it. Or any John Denver.

Though I can actually play Miserlou on both guitar and bass. Oh and Rock Lobster.

But there's some impediments.

I'm too old.
I'm nowhere near pretty enough.
There's no way I could fit Ben's shirt.
That picking hand tremolo thing defeats me.

And the absolute killer:
I play Telecasters.

Good luck guys; this would be an amazing band to be a part of.
We could make you a bib out of it ?
What, the shirt or the Telecaster?
The shirt of course.

The tele id use for and ironing board to make sure the bib was nice and crease free for performances.

I object to the refusal of any of you to accept that Telecasters have a place in surf rock.

There is such a thing as too many wigglesticks in one band.

Ahem.

1. yes teles are allowed in surf.
2. I actually have a telemaster bridge pickup in my JM to prove it
3. Also when i FIRST started playing surf i used a telecaster.
4. At no stage have I said telecasters dont belong in surf music, they just make great ironing boards. The two arent mutually exclusive.
5. Thank you come again

Can I suggest a compromise of using a Tele as a bread board instead. it is roughly the right shape and Rob could use a nice one for his lovely-looking sourdough. No danger of melting the finish onto his shirt (poly) or setting fire to the house (nitro).

Personally, I draw the line at trems on basses, I have seen those too. But a guitar without a trem is like beer without chips...you can do without, but it is so much better when you don't.

amen brother. Hard tail = hard fail.

Absolutely , a telecaster makes a GREAT bread board.
Also my nan taught me you could press flowers between two tele bodies VERY effectively.
They are SUCH a versatile guitar.
