Brian, if you're gonna die... please let somebody take apart your guitar. They can put it back together when they're done, but we need to be able to reverse-engineer that sound!

Just take the mantle off you fireplace and build your own. I'm sure you'll get the same results he did

Why would they reference a Foreigner song in the headline?

Damnit.  Lost my favorite author, Iain Banks to cancer in 2013.  He put out an announcement a lot like this a few months before he died.

Best of luck, Most Interesting Man in the World.  [1]

Perhaps he should call up his old chap Tony Iommi, since he's been going through the same thing.

/cancer is a biatch

You can pair it with a Deacy replica for bonus fidelity.

It's happened already.  He had several bench-made copies produced years ago, as a safeguard while touring.

Because it's too early to try and make "Just One Life" references, and only myself and a few dozen other people who still listen to  Back to the Light know what the hell I'm even talking about.

\oddly enough, it's about his dad dying

Covering "Knocking on Heaven's Door" while dying of cancer tells you he still had his wicked sense of humor.
