I wish, but no.

Here is a sample of my work that I did in graphite, ink, acrylic, and pastels.

Love it. Sometimes this Stinkerbell feels like giving the finger gesture from time to time as well. :)

Yeah Subdivisions is such a great tune. Me being a past Flutist during my Middle School and High School days, Jethro Tull was a God.

Yes, Triumph always seems like the step child to Rush, but they have put out some fantastic music over the years. Rik Emmett is also a Guitar God.

Yes,

I love Triumph! Saw them in concert here in Anchorage back in the early eighties. Great show. The day before the show, I met Rik Emmett and Mike Levine after a radio interview..I ended up getting their autographs and still have them. I posted a photo of it months ago in the Triumph thread. Looks a bit rough these days. Do you own any of Rik's solo material? Great stuff.

Not as much as I should. Just last year Rik was playing some shows mostly showing off guitar skills. I believe he was with another guy. He was in my area, but I had another engagement that evening and missed it.

This is probably what you missed:



One of my bros has seen him in this format a few times and says he's pretty awesome (he's seen Triumph back in the early-mid 80s too). From what I've seen on YouTube, it does seem cool. If Rik were playing anywhere even remotely close to me, I'd be there.

He still sounds amazing and of course plays the guitar like one of the best. The other guy is also absolutely amazing on the guitar.

Treeduck comes up with something good every once in a while!

Hello, Stinkerbell!  Another fan of all you mentioned in your original post!  I'm a little older, and encompass The end of the 50s [from the radio] and The Beatles were my first Mega-Band, Supplanted By RUSH after I saw them on the "Kirshner's Rock Concert" show late in '74. The minute I saw Neil and his 'kit', I was OWNED! Anyhow, good to see you here, and welcome to the Club! [Joe Walsh]

Hello Stinkerbell and welcome

I am relatively new here and managed to blot my copy book straight away!!!!  ha ha

Please don't take any comments too personally and react, sadly I made that mistake early on and have regretted it ever since

If anyone really upsets you then just speak to one of the admin like 73, he is a really good guy and laid back and pretty tolerant.

99% of people on here are great, just identify the 1% and ignore it.

Just find your way and get to know people.

Take care

Stevie ;) ;) ;)
