Billy Gibbons uses 7-38 gauge strings :shock: How is that even possible?!

Larry Amps is Novosibir on the Metroamp site, fairly switched on chappy.

As for Rev Willy G... I'd heard he was a packrat when it came to music gear, but I didn't realise he was THAT much of a packrat!

I really like that girl.

Apart from that - Billy Gibbons' guitar tech was a laugh. You can tell he puts up with grumpy old man syndrome an awful lot.

Dan Auerbach from the black keys rig, pretty cool.
Surprised about the MIDI controlling stuff, Dan always seemed so 'natural old school' etc. Makes sense why though.
