Post What Happened To Paul's FAQ?
Paul used to have this humorous bio on his website (well, I think it was on his website...) that started like... (name, birthdate, gender...) blood type: red. And the last line was from about 2006 and it said some good-looking movie star would marry him (I forget who)... in between all of this was a bunch of humorous and really good info.

So today I went to check for it, because I was going to do quick, direct fact-checking, as usual without having to e-mail, and...

IT'S GONE. The entire FAQ page.

*flips out* FECK!

The only place you can find *some* of the info., as typed by Paul and posted by Lamer, is now here:
http://racerxband.com/board/viewtopic.p ... 00&start=0
That post is missing a bunch of info. like, who runs his site, etc.

Of course Paul's playing a clinic like right now, so it's not like he can hop online in 5 minutes and be like "whoops. erased the menu entry, that's all, it'll brb"

edit: someone e-mailed me a few days ago and said something to me, the tune of, "great PG FAQ" and I just shrugged. (For ~300 hours of work, it had better be damn good! hehe!) I kinda raised an eyebrow, like "huh?" but forgot all about it. I had NO IDEA it was because Paul's was missing. I almost never visit his site, mostly because I don't want to be a pest and also because I don't want to replicate his content. Now that e-mail makes a lot more sense though. ;)
*runs off to improve blog*

Yeah, that's the humorous bio. Super find. I knew it was on an official site somewhere.
Thanks for the link.

Paul's FAQ is still missing though...

The menu entry is gone but I remembered the capitalization & checked, it does come up...

http://www.paulgilbert.com/FAQ.html

For now that is our only link.

Uh, it could be plausible that Paul could be making changes to the FAQ page or the site in general (as he does :P ). Either way, thanks for the heads up, Jenn.

Well, that's new! No?

Q: Will you do a new CD with MR. BIG, Racer X, Freddie Nelson, Jimi Kidd, Mike Portnoy, or Linus of Hollywood? Will you do a new solo CD with vocals? Will you do a new instrumental CD? And WHEN?

A: I have had the pleasure and honor of playing in some great bands, and doing projects with fantastic musicians. What will I do next? Unless AC/DC asks me to be their drummer, it will be "all of the above" in whatever order works legistically and keeps me the most inspired. Thank you for allowing me to pursue the music that I love.

Man, his site is anything but junky! It's freakin' hilarious!

I figured it was a site update...

She already posted the FAQ link :P

Also that Ibanez link has been gone for a loooong time. I didn't even know about it the first time I went to Paul's site.

Paul makes and drops links all the time. It's nothing new. All the pages are still active too, you just gotta find them.

I remember the time when I would always visit Paul's page in hopes of seeing an update. Now I don't anymore. It just annoys me cause I won't be able to see him anyway :lol:

You're right. He updates the menu but he has never once dropped the FAQ - and I have seen editions back to 2006 or so - so I'm pretty confident that this was strange enough to start a thread about it.
