Tell the taste filter that you´re PAUL @#$#% GILBERT!!! :D

Actually, this column was pretty heavily edited. I went a lot further into the details of live-squid-eating. When the column came up on the internet, I was a bit shocked at how much text had been taken out, but I guess that's the risk I take for going off on this sort of tangent


Too bad - its never fun being edited after speaking your mind. Would be great to know what was taken out though (but I guess you can't post the edits for legal reasons).

Still, next time could you make it about chocolate cake, or Lamill Coffee donuts please? Visions of newly severed writhing squid tentacles between a pair of chopsticks makes my eyes water :wink:

Brilliant column though - highly entertaining and immensely informative.

That's a really cool lesson..... alot of people underestimate the power of being able to play cleanly and mute the notes your not playing. And of course Paul's quirky sense of humour makes it an easy read :D

Yes it is! Although I think it's a topic in which you can only point the guitar player in the right direction and hope they're going to work on it. There's no way to explain exactly how to mute properly because everyone's technique is so different. Sometimes even the type of guitar makes a huge difference in muting (with your right hand). I must say, sadly - I'm still exploring the vast area of string muting and for some reason even though it's incredibly hard to play while standing up, it sounds cleaner :P

The second paragraph might be the funniest thing I've ever read from Paul!

Not playing constantly loud is a great idea and Paul does indeed have lots of dynamics in his song, but didn't anyone else feel like he's incredibly loud live?

I've had my piece of cake already playing guitar and listening with headphones, seeing concerts, so I totally know what he means talking high frequency loss and today I have my earing protection always with me and wear it all the time on concerts, but anyway Paul was really loud on his last concerts I've seen.
I always used to unplug my hearing protection for a song I especially like once in a while when seeing a concert, but Paul was that loud it hurt almoust instantly last time I saw him.

Was it just the club? Or the sound guy?
Or do I need Xtreme isolation for his concerts as well?

I know concerts are loud, but he was quite a step above most others I've seen.
And we all know his usual crowd doesn't exactly need much to be drowned out while he's playing... :lol:


But these columns are always a fun read anyway!

I saw Mr. Big live last year, and they were LOUD!

Not just Paul, but the whole band.

For me, I think it's important to take care of your hearing if you're a professional musician or deals with too much loud volume situations.

I got to concerts once every 2 or 3 months, I don't even rehearse with a band, and I can't play my amp too loud in my apartment. So, even if I might experience some hearing loss, I'm sure it won't be as bad as Paul's. At least I hope so.

Hearing loss is no joke or funny thing to mess around with.

Hearing can not be restored. Once its gone, you´re fucked.

These babes have been with my since 4 years ago, and I have had a wonderful experience going to gigs, playing live and/or rehearsing. They´re "hi fi" earplugs, at very affordable prices.

It is an investment you MUST make in your health, so you can rock your heart out until you´re an old SOB

Paul and the bands he play with are craaaaazy loud live, and so they should be. Mr Big last year, front row, in front of the PA and Paul's amps, I was pretty much blown away. I'm gonna get some effective hearing protection for the next gig I go to, and also so I can crank my amp a little more at home. (Although I should just do some small DIY soundproofing before I shake the house down and piss off the neighbours)
