So done with audiophile fuses
"Will you walk away from a fool and his money" is from the song "Come and Get It," which was written by Paul McCartney.....but, first recorded by the band Badfinger,. It was probably Badfinger's biggest hit, and the song was also produced by Paul ... 
Sending a 110 lb amp to the manufacturer for cleaning/calibration. Good idea? How to ship?
Lots of great advice so far; but, here's some first hand experience to consider...Many years ago my house took a direct hit by lightning and it fried many things, including my Sim Audio amp. I took it to a local Sim Audio dealer who then sent it b... 
One Cord To Rule Them All
+ 1 on Cullen Cable. The only downside is their product rarely shows up on the used market and there is probably a 3+ week wait if you order something directly from them. I have no experience with Pangea products; but, a friend of mine who works i... 
Any good experience in discovering new music via TV or movie recently ?
+ 1 on American Utopia. I was also impressed by a recent feature that CBS Saturday Morning did on Michael Kiwanuka. 
If you had access to a time machine, what concerts would you go back to see?
@crimsoniter, I've seen almost 500 concerts (am about a dozen short); but, "almost a thousand concerts," now that is impressive!

@boothroyd, good choice with Stephen Bruton. I wish I would've caught Gary Clark, Jr in the local clubs when I had the chance. I heard about The Shady Grove and Threadgills closing down. Man, it looks like the world is probably gonna be a boring p...

@Only waytoomuchstuff, great story about the Texas International Pop Festival. I know there are bootlegs of some of those sets floating around, because a friend of mine has a copy of Santana's set. I remember the sound quality being surprisingly g...

@milkkefir, good choice with Joni Mitchell's 79 tour with Jaco & Metheny. Her 74 tour for "Miles of Aisles" with Tom Scott & The LA Express (Robben Ford on guitar) would also be a good choice.

Traffic from 1967 - 1973. I'd want to see the original lineup with Dave Mason, the modified original lineup for "Welcome To The Canteen" (with Jim Gordon & Ric Gretch), the "John Barleycorn" lineup and the lineup with the Muscle Shoals boys th...

@sgreg1, you make two good points:1) "SRV, so I could tell him not to get on the helicopter!"Now that's the kind of creative response that I've been looking for in this thread!!2) "I was there...but, I didn't have the opportunity to remember the m...

@kingbr, great point about catching a band early in their career, before they go mainstream and sell out (assuming they even get that opportunity). Not to mention having to deal with the trendster - wannabe, "Johnny come lately" fans that show up ...

For the sake of clarity,you can  list anything you want ("no limits"); it doesn't matter if you missed it the first time around or if you would want to revisit a great show that you did attend.I'm not surprised by the amount of mentions for the Al...

@cheeg, that is a great story! I saw Santana and Clapton together in the summer of 1977. They took turns being the opening act and the headliner, so they were very competitive. The show ended with both bands on stage together for a 20+ minute jam ...

@Ihasaguy, I caught the Beck - Bogart & Appice tour in 1973. That one was special.
