this afternoon I'm flying to salt lake city...

early tomorrow morning I'm doing a seminar
for the sales people at Musician's Friend,
the largest catalog music company in the U.S.
(owned by Guitar Center) in the hopes
of getting them all fired up about selling
what I consider to be the finest guitar in the world:
the Adrian Belew Signature Model Parker Fly.
on tuesday I'll be doing a similar thing in denver.

on another note:
happy birthday to two of the world's finest musicians,
and two of my favorite people on any planet:
robert fripp (may 16) and bill bruford (my 17).
cheers, boys!


  1. Happy Birthday to RF & BB!!
    RE: Parker Fly... very nice stuff but this "little guy" can only dream of owning such-a-tool! :)

  2. Happy Birthday Robert Fripp
    Happy Birthday Bill Bruford

    Come back alive King Crimson!

  3. Happy Birthday to RF & BB
    Have a safe and wonderful flight.
    If I had the means I'd sure like one of the Adrian Belew Signature Model Parker Fly's. How about a recession special? 8^D

  4. I Live in Denver! Let me know if you want a free pizza while your down here, Mr. Belew.

    P.S. Happy Birthday to Mr. Fripp and Mr. Bruford.

    In 1999 or 2000, I was vacationing in SLC and discovered that Adrian Belew was playing at the Zephyr Club there. That was a GREAT one-man show. I hope you'll bring the 21st century version to Cali's central coast. Gracias!

    Hi Adrian

    My name’s Maddy and I’m working with on an incredibly exciting Guitar competition that launches today! We’re offering you the chance to re-record original MARK KNOPFLER and DIRE STRAITS tracks! The final prize is the chance to win a one-on-one tutorial with Mark himself. For more information on how to enter visit the PureSolo website or Facebook page

    Mark Knopfler has made three of his most famous tracks available to PureSolo, remastered with the lead guitar part missing. The tracks are ‘Sultans of Swing’ ‘Calling Elvis’ and ‘Speedway to Nazareth’. Guitarists who want to enter the competition can download the tracks and record their own guitar over the top, essentially filling the shoes of Mark!

    The winner will get to meet Mark Knopfler at his private studios in London for a one-to-one mentoring session, a prize that money can’t buy! The winner will receive a free return (economy) flight and 2 night stay in a 5* London hotel.

    Let me know if you’re interested in telling your community about this competition and I have provided you with banners and any more information you need. We’d really appreciate your support, and think this is a great opportunity that no guitarist will want to miss out on!
